DC Firearm Injury Surveillance Dashboard

In the fall of 2020, DC Health's Center for Policy, Planning and Evaluation (CPPE) was awarded one of ten Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Firearm Injury Surveillance Through Emergency Rooms (FASTER) grants. This grant has allowed the District to begin regularized surveillance of firearm injury visits to the city’s seven emergency departments.  DC-FASTER helps address important gaps in timely data availability for firearm injuries. Timely reporting at the city level through FASTER, allows the District to detect surges in gun violence, monitor the victimization of at-risk groups, and understand trends in firearm injury.  Data provided in this dashboard are updated monthly and represent the number of emergency department visits for firearm injury. All seven of the District’s Emergency rooms report to DC Health daily.
