FIRST is a research enterprise organized to support the United States fire and rescue service through objective data collection and analysis. In the absence of a nationwide comprehensive data system that documents injuries and risk factors to firefighters, the FIRST team created two models (both a department-level and state-level) resulting in robust master data systems. FiRE Fellows will analyze data from master injury data systems created by FIRST for the Philadelphia Fire Department, Boston Fire Department, and the State of Florida. The 12-week fellowship is supported by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Assistance to Firefighter Grants Research & Development program.
Fellows are being trained in injury nomenclature, classification matrices, national injury data systems, exploratory data analyses, advanced statistical analyses, and community partner stewardship.
The fellows are mentored by the following faculty: Dr. Jennifer A. Taylor, Associate Professor in the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health; Dr. Loni Tabb, Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics; Ms. Shannon Widman MPH (2010), and Ms. Andrea Davis MPH (2012), CPH.
