Incidencesof Fire about Socioeconomic Status
SMART Outcome Objectives and Process
By the end of June 2017, Chicago will have increased smoke detectors in homes by 25% as indicated by pre and post training interventions.
S-Smoke detectors increase in Chicago homes
A-Existingnumber of smoke detectors versus the new one after intervention
R-It is realistic, Red Cross will do training and evaluation by thesame team.
At the end of the evaluation, it will be visible that Home fires in Chicago will also reduce by 60% for the same period of June as pointed out by the present 40 percent present incidences of home fires in Chicago and adoption of smoke detectors.
S-reductionin fire incidences in home
M-reductionby 60%, adoption of more smoke detectors
A-Existingdifference in adoption of smoke detectors between present and June
R-Red Cross will purchase more smoke detectors for homes
Timeframe-from March to June
a)The organization will purchase 200 smoke detectors to be installedhomes.
b).Trainers from the Red Cross will be hired to ensure that the smokedetectors are well used and maintained by the trainees and theirparents.
2.Methodologyin the Intervention and its appropriateness
Aquasi-experimental study is the most appropriate method for thisproject because it involves the application of a both control andexperimental group designs and leads to more causal links betweenresearch interventions and outcomes (Haris et al., 2006). Studentswill be used from different cluster panels in the Chicago area fromfour specific elementary schools. Parents will be asked to sign aconsent form, and the Red Cross team will help in the process. Asurvey will be conducted for the given number of students, and thequestionnaire will be administered to both the control students andthe experimental ones.
Outof a possible representation of 200 students, 56 percent will beexperimental, and 44% will be the control. The Red Cross team willhave the parents of the students accepted to undertake the survey andtraining on smoke detectors installed in their homes, to sign aconsent form. The structure will allow them to have the smokedetectors installed in the homes and will help them agree on the waysof training their children on how to use the smoke detectors in casethere is an emergency. After a period of 3 months, the same team willcome back again to the students to assess any form of changesconcerning their awareness of the application of the smoke detectors.Another survey questionnaire will be administered to know any outcomedifference between the control and experiment group who had beentrained on using metal detectors installed in their homes.
Sincethe ages of houses determine the likelihood of fire attack in future,the team should ask the parents of the ages of the houses and putthem down (Shahi, 2006). The approach will allow the team to know anydifference in the survey between the homes of the poor kids and richones’ families and their tendency to catch fire and even call forhelp from the fire department.
Intentional Design Stage
Vision-Prevention of fire outbreaks in Chicago using smoke detectors and education
Mission- education through training will be used in helping families prevent fire outbreaks.
Boundary Partners- Red Cross, Chicago School Administrators, etc
Outcome Partner- Red Cross is expected to roll out plans of ensuring families have smoke detectors
Outcome priorities- smoke detection application across socioeconomic status
Outcome Journals will be used to see changes in outcomes
Strategy and performance journal will be used for each of these monitoring states.
Feedback survey questionnaire will be administered to know the project progress at evaluation.
