It is crucial to have an organized plan when recruiting volunteer firefighters and responding to emergency calls. Time is valuable and manually handling the different elements of the recall can slow the process down. This can take away from managing the emergency effectively, leading to a more muted response.
Municipal governments are having trouble mobilizing volunteer firefighters and managing the emergency alerts. They are looking for a better way to handle all of these factors without creating more manual work for those involved. This is why SimplyCast created the Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment solution, which takes advantage of personalized communication and automated tools.
By combining several automated technologies and digitizing the process, volunteer firefighters can be acquired much easier. This means that alerts can be responded to quickly. Recruiting volunteers and responding to action more efficiently is the primary goal of this solution. It aims to help these organizations simplify how they manage the steps.
The solution makes use of 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 central dashboard.

The Benefits of the Digital Solution
SimplyCast is aiming to simplify how organizations recruit volunteer firefighters and make it easier for them to respond to action. Keeping everyone safe is always the priority and automation can help make this an easier outcome. Avoiding miscommunications and delays in the heat of an emergency such as a fire is ideal. Utilizing automated technology can help make this more approachable.
This solution can help parties communicate easily with one another, and reach the correct outcome as quickly as possible. Recruitment automation will help solve problems in firefighting and other emergency situations. Here are our top 3 examples of why the Automated Volunteer Firefighter Recruitment system is a good choice.
Simplify the Recruitment Process
Instead of manually taking in applications for volunteers, those who are interested can fill out a short online form. This can be accessed through an online search or even a QR code. Either option makes it easier to start the recruitment process. The system will automatically notify the administrator once a form has been submitted so they can take the appropriate next steps.
Respond to Fires Quicker
Mass notifications can be sent out when an emergency occurs, and firefighters are needed to respond. These can be sent through several channels such as SMS messages, emails, and phone calls. To save as much time as possible, all of the firefighters can respond at once and confirm their availability. For additional organization, the exact number of firefighters needed can be programmed, and any additional responses can be redirected.
Track Emergency Status
A central dashboard will track each emergency and the number of firefighters who responded. This allows administrators to keep an eye on things and call in additional help if needed.
