In this episode we talk with FF/PIO Corey Lewis from the Richmond, Kentucky, Fire Department. RFD was one of the 25 agencies across the nation that took part in 2018's Town/Gown Fire Safety Community Service Project, a partnership between First Alert, the Michael H. Minger Foundation and Campus Firewatch, that connects college students with fire departments to install smoke alarms in at-risk homes. RFD took it to another level by also doing it on Martin Luther King Day as a community day of service with 53 students from Eastern Kentucky University. By using analytics, they were able to create heat maps identifying the at-risk parts of the community to better focus their efforts.
