Chief Fire Data Nerd
American Association of Insurance Services (AAIS)
Dr. Matt Hinds-Aldrich, or "Dr Matt", worked for the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) leading the development of a new national fire data system and a wider effort to facilitate and improve how fire departments across the country and globe collect, analyze and use data to focus their efforts, improve their operations, and demonstrate their value. As a qualitative researcher who accidentally became the “data guy”, Dr. Matt’s interest in data is primarily focused upon helping fire departments understand and navigate the parallel paradigm shifts transforming the fire service: community risk reduction and performance management.
