Moore-Merrell, along with a small group of public safety leaders recently founded the International Public Safety Data Institute IPSDI with a mission to assure that every local public safety agency can show their response capability and reliability using their own local data.
Garner began his service in the public safety sector as a volunteer firefighter over ten years ago. Garner is still a volunteer firefighter in Northern Virginia and works closely with the fire service to leverage open source tools to automate workflows, analyze and visualize data. He has successfully provided technical leadership and managerial oversight on multiple open source development efforts for commercial and government customers. He is also a member of many other professional organizations. Chief Compton is a past recipient of the George D.

In he designed and implemented in EMS and ambulance service comprehensive web based electronic medical records, ePCR systems and real-time active management mobile care; and telemedicine non-emergent transport systems.

Within the New York City workforce, over , employees and their family members were unvaccinated from the flu in the flu season, risking their own health and potentially spreading the flu to others. To increase uptake of flu vaccines and maintain a healthy workforce during the flu season, the BDT partnered with WorkWell NYC to design a set of three behaviorally-informed emails to all of the NYC employees encouraging them to protect themselves and others from the flu by getting a vaccine.
In only 0. The BDT designed a behaviorally-informed to-do list encouraging City employees to register for ZocDoc and telemedicine. The to-do list was included in the mailing that sent City employees their new health insurance cards in summer The checklist was sent to employees with last names beginning with the letters A-K and a control version with plain formatting was sent to those with last names beginning with the letters L-Z.
In order to boost engagement with targeted homeowners, the BDT worked with ORR to design and test—via a randomized controlled trial—a behaviorally-informed "last chance letter" that simplified language, depicted the concrete benefits of participation, and imposed a soft deadline.

In a final effort to gather information on the flood resiliency and insurance affordability among flood-risk households, the BDT supported the design of door hangers to accompany door-to-door canvassing efforts to increase uptake of a survey. The design incorporated elements from an earlier randomized controlled trial with ORR: using icons to emphasize the benefits of participation, highlighting a soft deadline, and simplifying the steps to take action. In addition, individuals were given their unique PIN for survey completion on the doorhanger.
The email implemented social norms messaging, simplified action steps, and made salient the benefits of certification. An incentive program that pays taxicab drivers to drive Wheelchair Accessible Vehicles WAVs , aimed at increasing the number of accessible cabs on the road experienced low enrollment and engagement. This prompted the TLC to look into their strategies for engaging drivers, and together the TLC and the BDT redesigned materials mailed to a subset of drivers, including enrollment instructions, a sample application, and a letter, all intended to reduce the hassles and ambiguity of applying to the program.
Programs Products Special Initiatives. Department of Education DOE. An RCT showed that the redesigned email increased testing requests by 6. The results of the study on specific districts is expected in March Department of Finance DOF. Reducing the Number of Parking Tickets Entering Judgment About a fifth of parking tickets issued to drivers in NYC enter into judgment, among which over three-quarters could have been addressed sooner.
An RCT showed that expensive tickets belonging to drivers that received the behaviorally designed envelope days after receiving their ticket were 9. DOF plans to scale the behaviorally designed envelope to all drivers whose unpaid tickets prompt the day notice. Reducing Tax Lien Sales Tens of thousands of property owners in New York City are at risk of having a lien put on their properties, due to non-payment of property taxes. An RCT found no statistically significant effect, likely due to low power. However, additional businesses registered after receiving the behavioral email compared to the business-as-usual email.
Mailed inserts were scaled citywide. Increasing Physician Uptake of Asthma Medication Administration Forms Asthma medication administration forms MAFs allow school staff to administer asthma medication to students in respiratory distress, reducing emergency room visits and lost classroom time. The behaviorally designed MAF was scaled to all physicians citywide , with improved distribution in The self-affirmation notes and decision trees were scaled to all NYC school nurses at the start of the school year.
Reducing Micro-hassles Improves Firefighter Diversity: Removing an Exam Filing Fee Historically, women and minority group members have become firefighters at lower rates than white men. An RCT showed that candidates who received both a text message and an email were 3. The survey closed in November , and final results were presented in April Survey responses demonstrated that Black and female candidates express experiencing threat related to their race and gender, respectively , regardless of whether or not they were hired. FDNY, in response, is in the process of leveraging opportunities to reduce perceived threat throughout the hiring process.
Supporting female firefighter candidates to appear for and pass their physical exam Candidate Physical Ability Test - CPAT In the past, nearly twice the number of eligible female candidates fail to appear for the CPAT than male candidates. The reflection exercise and planning card were rolled out to candidates in June , and the next physical exam is scheduled to be held late Summer - early Fall Increasing the number of firefighter candidates who claim residency points Many firefighter candidates with long-term residency in NYC who take the written firefighter exam fail to claim the additional points offered to long-term NYC residents — this difference of a few extra points often bumps candidates into eligibility.
A randomized controlled trial showed no statistically significant difference in claimed points for those who received social norms messaging compared to loss aversion messaging. A small sample of underrepresented candidates who received a more intensive campaign were 7. This suggests that a more intensive behavioral campaign targeting encourages candidates who are less likely to claim their points.
Recommendations are being used to inform the redesign the Housing Connect portal , which will include a behaviorally-informed income questionnaire and housing suggestions tailored for applicants.
An RCT showed the reminder reduced failure to submit recertification forms by 5. The reminder notice was scaled to all clients who do not submit their forms by the reminder mailing date. An RCT showed no statistically significant differences in call-in rates or rent assistance between the original and the redesigned notices. The impact of this intervention will be measured using an RCT, and results are expected by March, Increasing Sign-Ups for Tax Preparation Messaging The City has important tax information to share with residents, but it often lacks the contact information to do so.
While an RCT was attempted to measure the impact of the redesigned website, the study was under-powered. The redesigned website was scaled citywide for future tax years. Increasing Flu Vaccines among City Employees Within the New York City workforce, over , employees and their family members were unvaccinated from the flu in the flu season, risking their own health and potentially spreading the flu to others.
Behavioral emails doubled click through and registration rates. Email designs were scaled citywide after the piloted email blast enrolled about three times as many people as the first email. Health Insurance Card Insert In only 0.

A pseudo-random assignment was designed, but no comparative data were released by the insurer. An RCT showed a 4. Supporting Efforts to Boost Survey Uptake among High Flood-Risk Households In a final effort to gather information on the flood resiliency and insurance affordability among flood-risk households, the BDT supported the design of door hangers to accompany door-to-door canvassing efforts to increase uptake of a survey.
Personalized action steps were delivered to every household eligible for the affordability study.
