Welcome to FireQ - Fire Department Management Software
Created by emergency responders for emergency personnel, FireQ provides emergency communication and management software to fire departments across North America.
FireQ is a two-part system, consisting of software that collects and manages the data needed to run a fire department; and an app for firefighters that lets them send and receive critical information. Together, the FireQ app and software come together to offer firefighters one of the most comprehensive suite of tools available.

How FireQ Helps Fire Departments
For the first time, solutions for the fire service are being created with the input of firefighters.
This collaboration is reflected in a 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 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, 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; during an emergency with multi-layered communication features that ensure they can send and receive critical information; and, after an emergency with robust reporting and analysis.
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.
– Ian McVicar, CEO, Breton SmarTek
