In 2019, STEPs conducted quantitative surveys and focus groups with healthcare and EMS/fire first responders. Due to the amount of data collected and the tight timeline of the overall project, analyses of both the quantitative and qualitative data were minimal. Data and findings from the healthcare and EMS/fire first responders were analyzed and reported separately in the initial report. The research team hoped that an in-depth analysis would provide greater insight into this data. The following report is a secondary analysis of the 2019 data.
