Top problems we solve
Stay current with automatic updates
Save time and effort with cloud-based policy management software. Automatic alerts, side-by-side comparisons, and version control all work to help you keep track of changes and eliminate outdated policies everywhere they exist. No more tracking down and removing old versions manually.
Track who has signed what
Electronic signature tracking, audit trails, dashboards, and reports combine to make accountability standard practice within your department. Reduce liability with a streamlined way to stay compliant without burdening your staff.
Operate with confidence
Maintaining the proper policies and SOPs to meet your SLA expectations has never been easier. Disseminate mission-critical information with the touch of a button, ensure documentation is always up-to-date, and eliminate wasteful paper processes that take too much time and manual effort.
Reduce prep time by 50%
With less manual effort, assessment prep won’t monopolize your department’s resources. Save time and effort with software that does the work for you.
Easily track policy and SOP updates
Eliminate time-consuming manual processes for tracking policy and SOP changes. Use automated policy review tools and intelligently link policies to standards to receive automatic alerts when an update may impact a policy linked to that standard.
Streamline communication and collaboration
Improve collaboration with a streamlined system that allows you to assign specific tasks, standards, or chapters to subject matter experts both within and outside of your department. Improve communication with automated notifications and reminders to keep everyone informed of their tasks, updates to standards, and policy/SOP changes.
Demonstrate your commitment to excellence
Achieve accreditation the easier way. Centralized tools for standards mapping, task management, and self-assessments help you demonstrate your department’s commitment to excellence without overburdening your staff.
Measure citizen satisfaction
Fire departments don’t have a streamlined system for collecting citizen feedback about safety services. Without a method for collecting feedback, fire departments can’t get a clear picture of how to make improvements, justify decisions, or further build a relationship with the community they serve.
Build firefighters up
Positive feedback from citizens is sent directly to firefighters and can be displayed on department screens to boost morale and show staff they are appreciated. Additionally, PowerEngage’s peer check-in facilitation ensures firefighters receive the support they need after particularly tough experiences.
Automate citizen communication
Fire departments don’t have an efficient way to communicate directly with citizens during and after emergency situations. Methods for informing citizens usually require excessive manual effort and staffing, which take time and resources fire departments don’t have. An automated solution can help.
Attract more recruits
Become an employer of choice by demonstrating your commitment to firefighter morale as well as positive community and department relationships. Engage tech-savvy candidates with QR codes that automatically connect them to a chat with a recruiter.
Easier schedule management
Prevent firefighter burnout with digital schedule management that offers 24/7 real-time schedule visibility, streamlines time-off requests, and helps eliminate excessive overtime with an internal warning system.
Automate your schedules
Build digital schedules with speed and accuracy, eliminate manual errors, and ensure every shift is fully staffed with properly certified personnel. Never juggle outdated paper schedules again.
Get a clear picture of your scheduling
Collect schedule data, create reports, and export payroll information with simple scheduling software. Get the information you need to inform decisions and make improvements in your station.
Communicate updates and provide access
Provide real-time scheduling information, and communicate critical schedule updates with automatic texts or email blasts. Take advantage of functionality built specifically for public safety with 24/7 coverage, rotating shifts, and fulfilling minimum staffing requirements.
Instill a culture of excellence
Centralize and standardize your training resources in one easy-to-access cloud-based location to ensure every firefighter is trained to the same standard of excellence. Monitor trainee progress and trainer effectiveness, identify patterns of success, and recognize areas for improvement.
Keep responding units safe
Operate confidently, knowing every firefighter has received consistent and complete EMT training. Standardized, cloud-based training allows you to equip your team and consistently improve your training program to ensure the safety of responders.
Bring the focus back to high-quality training
Simplify your onboarding and training processes with automated documentation. Built-in quiz templates, required comment fields, and customizable alerts work together to streamline your processes so documentation doesn’t get in the way of great training.
Automate department training processes
Eliminate tedious, time-consuming, and error-prone manual processes. A centralized system allows you to manage all your training in a single cloud-based location with 24/7 access from any digital device. Automate your onboarding and training processes by assigning tasks to individuals, groups, or departments.
