Firefighters work with a broad array of equipment, from miscellaneous supplies that cost less than $10 to million-dollar apparatus. The task of keeping track of all this gear falls to the agency’s quartermaster and inventory management software.

The job of the quartermaster is complex. Some equipment, such as uniforms, have an expected service life and are periodically replaced. At the other end of the spectrum are items that may stay with one member or apparatus for their entire career.

Managing all this material is simplificed with inventory management software. The best packages save time and effort, and provide better security than a homegrown database can offer.

This FireRescue1 guide addresses several issues to consider in the acquisition of quartermaster/inventory management software. Included in this guide:

  • Key considerations before buying
  • Questions to ask vendors
  • Company directory
