How FireQ Firefighter Software Helps Fire Departments

For the first time, software solutions for fire departments are being created with the input of firefighters.

This collaboration is reflected in a fire department software solution that recognizes the needs of firefighters when they are responding to an emergency and the needs of the firefighters tasked with managing the fire department. FireQ is a fire department records management system and a Firefighter response system in one.

FireQ provides fire departments with information about who can respond and when they will arrive using a rapid-response verification system to complement existing dispatch systems during an emergency. FireQ desktop software collects and manages the data needed to run a fire department, such as fire department inventory management, and the FireQ smartphone app allows firefighters to send and receive critical information in real-time.

Designed to complement the things that firefighters already do, FireQ helps firefighters before an emergency with features to help them prepare and remain ready (ex. pre plans); during an emergency with multi-layered communication features that ensure they can send and receive critical information (ex. fire department text alerts); and, after an emergency with robust reporting and analysis (ex. Fire department records management).

After 20+ years of working as a volunteer firefighter and fire captain, I knew there must be a better solution than pagers and spreadsheets to manage my department. When we couldn’t find a solution, we decided to build our own.
