Innovative Scheduling for Emergency Response 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.

This computerization facilitates substantial improvements in operational efficiency by enabling management staff to be allocated to 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.
