Download this FireRescue1 fire department records management systems buying guide to learn key steps for product selection, purchasing and implementation

In today’s information age, it’s crucial for fire department leadership to collect and analyze data about service delivery (e.g., EMS patient care, fire suppression, hazmat, technical rescue) and personnel management (e.g., demographics, time and attendance, injuries, workers’ compensation claims). Fire department records management systems (RMS) play a pivotal role in this process.

While many fire departments currently have an RMS, evolving regulatory requirements and advancements in technology necessitate systems that can adapt and grow with the department. However, not all vendors offer viable solutions in response to these changes, leaving many fire departments dissatisfied with their current RMS and seeking replacements. For those without an RMS, there’s no better time to acquire a system that meets both current and future needs.

Switching to a new RMS involves some risk, but the benefits can significantly outweigh these concerns. The right RMS can streamline operations, enhance data management, and improve overall efficiency.

This FireRescue1 How-to-Buy Guide explores the impact of RMS applications on fire departments and offers best practices for vendor selection to help mitigate risks during procurement.

Included in this guide:

  • Benefits of an RMS
  • Key considerations before purchasing a fire department RMS
  • Essential questions to ask vendors
