How to buy scheduling software

Download this FireRescue1 scheduling software buying guide to learn key steps for product selection, purchasing and implementation


Scheduling is an ongoing concern and challenge for every fire service organization. Providing around-the-clock emergency services to a community requires highly trained members and associated support services operating on a variety of shifts. Available staffing must be able to meet both the likely and unlikely needs of the community. 

Another key: Scheduling often plays a key role in the satisfaction or dissatisfaction of your team. Using software solutions to automate and streamline the process allows fire service leaders to step away from the day-to-day mechanics of scheduling and answer a bigger question, "How can I better position my members' service as an employer of choice through staffing and scheduling practices?"
