In the summer of 2016, the City of Cincinnati experienced a unprecedented spike in heroin overdoses. In response to this epidemic, the City of Cincinnati began analyzing emergency medical services (EMS) response data to identify trends and geographic "hotspots," helping public safety identify key areas for strategically deploying personnel and medical resources.
Note: the data populating this dashboard is a subset of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Response data (EMS dashboard can be found HERE). This data captures CFD responses to reported heroin overdose incidents, and does not include patient information or medical outcome data.
The data used to create this dashboard updates daily: underlying data is available on the Open Data Portal.
