Carlyn Pauline Muir, Lesley Margaret Day

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned ReportResearch


CFA aims to significantly improve their fire emergency outcome data (such as fire incidence, fatality, injury and property damage/loss), through the identification and implementation of immediate actions and recommendations in relation to long-term improvements.

The purpose of this project is to provide advice and recommendations in relation to longer term improvements, investments or changes required in order for CFA to begin to seriously improve its ability to understand its fire emergency outcomes performance and drivers.

The evidence on broader public health and injury prevention is reviewed, and CFA's current data capability is mapped against existing frameworks. Recommendations on data improvements and refinements to outcome measures are provided for the short, medium and longer term.
