Meet CRAIG 1300™, Your CRA Insight Generator

mySidewalk is excited to announce the launch of CRAIG 1300 in partnership with the National Fire Protection AssociationCommunity Risk Reduction, or CRR, has continued to gain recognition in recent years as an effective approach to mitigating community risks; conducting a CRA that utilizes community data is a critical first step in the CRR process. CRAIG 1300 was developed to give fire departments, prevention advocates, and safety officials the tools and data resources they need to do this important work.


"Time and again, we've heard from fire departments and community leaders that aggregating and analyzing data is a challenge," said Karen Berard-Reed, community risk reduction strategist at NFPA. "By developing CRAIG 1300, our ultimate goal is to break down those hurdles and help communities leverage the information they need to mitigate public safety risks and hazards."

Uniquely aligned with NFPA 1300, Standard on Community Risk Assessment and Community Risk Reduction Plan Development, CRAIG 1300 features a user-friendly dashboard with customized maps, graphs, and charts. Community leaders can use CRAIG 1300 to:

  • Learn about the people, places, and conditions that are at-risk in the community.
  • Shave months of human resources typically needed for data analysis and refocus resources on CRR plan development to drive enhanced community safety.    
  • Activate teams to develop and manage CRR initiatives informed by NFPA 1300 with regularly updated data sources.
  • Engage stakeholders, grantors, and partners in cross-community initiatives with easy-to-use visualization tools.
  • Communicate the effectiveness of initiatives with stakeholders, grantors, and partners.

Over the past two years, we've collaborated with NFPA and more than 300 communities who pilot-tested the digital platform, providing insights that helped maximize its usability and value.

 "We couldn't be more excited to be partnering with the NFPA to provide the powerful new CRAIG 1300 tool," said Stephen Hardy, mySidewalk CEO. "By combining expertise from NFPA, our one-of-a-kind community data, and local fire service teams' knowledge of the communities they serve, CRAIG 1300 will completely change the way the fire service assesses risk, makes equitable and holistic decisions, and builds informed stakeholders."

We're excited to add CRAIG 1300 to our suite of public safety solutions that help members of the fire service use data to assess and reduce community risk, improve emergency response times, and save lives.

CRAIG 1300 is available as a product suite with three dashboard options: CRAIG 1300 PRO, CRAIG 1300 PLUS, and CRAIG 1300 FLEX. To learn more about CRAIG 1300 and its offerings, visit craig.mysidewalk.com or http://www.nfpa.org/1300.
