Top problems we solve for 9-1-1
Overworked & Understaffed
Is your ECC understaffed, overworked, or underskilled? Between baby boomers retiring en masse and a high stress work environment, many 9-1-1 centers are experiencing staffing shortages and high employee turnover. Learn how PowerDMS can help you prevent overscheduling and build a high performing team. Our scheduling, onboarding, and performance evaluation tools can be tailored to your specific needs.
Emergency communications is a high stress job, and until dispatchers are classified as first responders, the lack of benefits and respect don’t help. Low morale and burnout can lead to complacency and cynicism – both cancerous to a 9-1-1 center. With PowerDMS, you can boost staff morale and team spirits, promote mental wellness with an anonymous peer-to-peer network, ensure minimum staffing, and prevent overscheduling.
Managing Tech Solutions
Is your 9-1-1 center inundated with technology? Many ECCs have limited capacity to manage each technology solution, whether it’s the dispatch system, paging system, alerting system, or reverse 9-1-1 system. So how could more technology be the solution? From automating your scheduling, training, and callbacks to simplifying the creation and distribution of policies, PowerDMS helps you save time and increase your bandwidth.
Keeping up with call volume, especially while understaffed, is a challenging task. But your 9-1-1 center has to meet SLAs for agencies, cities, and national standards. While PowerDMS can help with employee retention and scheduling, we also provide tools for achieving and maintaining accreditation. Map policies and proofs of compliance to standards like CALEA, and subscribe to standards from 60+ accrediting bodies.
