Mobilizing and recruiting volunteer firefighters is an important task for municipal governments but can be a challenge when handled completely manually. They face issues with making it simpler for new firefighters to volunteer, calling them to action in event of an emergency, and keeping an overview of the emergency as it progresses. These are all crucial to have a smooth-running response system and keep everyone safe. Time is of the essence when responding to a fire related emergency, so having a pre-established plan for how the organization is going to respond is an important asset.
This is why SimplyCast developed the Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment system, which makes use of several automated tools to optimize the recruitment and management process. This emergency communications solution helps the organization efficiently respond to fires and manage new hires without any additional manual work. The ease of automation helps things run quicker, which is a crucial element when dealing with emergencies. This solution was designed for use by volunteers and administrators.
The Benefits of the Digital Solution
SimplyCast foresaw the need for a better management system that takes advantage of what automation can offer. The solution makes use of three key factors. An easily accessed volunteer recruitment form to bring in more volunteers, the ability to call in responders using automated texts, phone calls, and emails, and finally a dashboard where administrators can keep track of the responding firefighters. All these elements streamline the response that firefighters and administrators use when taking in new volunteers and handling emergencies. We have broken down each step in the process and who is involved.
The administrator for the volunteer firefighter department creates a form that is available for any interested volunteers to sign up online. They will be notified when anyone submits a form and can review and follow up as needed.
In the event of a fire, the administrator can launch a recall that will contact all available volunteers at once.
Step 3- Firefighters
After submitting the form, volunteers will be notified of any fire and can easily respond to the recall, confirming if they are available.
Over the course of the fire, the administration can track and review the responses, and make sure enough volunteers are available and at the scene.
That’s the summary of what it takes to create a digital solution for volunteer firefighter recruitment, and it’s only scratching the surface of what is possible when it comes to using automated technology to help municipal governments operate smoothly.
