Los Angeles City Fire Department are the latest customer for Alchemy and ESRI's CRR Leadership Programme.

 July saw the CRR Leadership Programme developed by Alchemy and ESRI introduced into LA City Fire Department. After some changes in leadership and a new city-wide strategy for the service, LA City engaged us to kick start their programmes to improve the life chances of their citizens. A cross-Departmental team of committed officers spent a week learning about approaches to CRR, ways of using and managing analytical information and leading change in their organisation. The week culminated in a wildly successful presentation to the new Chief and the President of the Fire Commission and has invigorated the second largest fire department in the US in their efforts to make a real difference.

We were especially grateful to our friends at Rancho Cucamonga Fire Department who presented their own journey of discovery, having been one of the pioneers of our new approach in 2014. Their story inspired their much larger neighbour to believe in the possibilities of the new CRR Leadership approach. We will keep in touch with LA to see how they progress and report back on their successes.
