AION’S Specialty Suite For Fire And EMS Agencies


An automated, web-based fire scheduling and personnel management system is essential for the successful operations of mission-critical Fire and EMS agencies. With the need to immediately respond to emergencies, these dedicated professionals require sophisticated software technologies to alleviate the burden of administrative paperwork, labor management, and payroll calculations.

FIRES (Fire-Rescue Scheduling System) is an indispensable management tool for supervisors who are responsible for managing the complex and variable schedules of their agencies. The flexible, user-friendly screens automate everything from calendaring, overtime and certifications to payroll, reporting, and broadcast messaging.

When added to the AION platform, FIRES advanced features enable management to focus on more important tasks, while eliminating the human error factor inherent in paper-based systems.

FIRES offers progressive employee self-service features available through the Internet, smart phones, tablets or workstations. Employees have the ability to check their schedule, confirm real-time accrual balances, request leave and overtime, accept an offer to work, and sign up for special assignments. Broadcast messages regarding overtime opportunities or emergencies can also be received by staff via text, e-mail or phone using state-of-the-art telephone technology.

    The challenge we had prior to FIRES is that our scheduling program was inadequate and we had to do payroll the old fashioned way, by hand! Now we are able to pull reports from FIRES… it does it all for us and we no longer spend 6-7 hours figuring payroll – it is done in 2 hours or less.

    FIRES has greatly improved the ability to track employees’ time off and provide for a reliable, accurate schedule for both [our] Fire and EMS departments. It worked so well that we convinced our Police Department to purchase the program!

    FIRES has answered our scheduling needs and greatly reduced the time and effort needed to complete our payroll. We were able to reduce our administrative costs with the use of this software because less time was needed to complete our daily and bi-weekly reporting and tracking.
