Emergency Technologies has signed a contract to provide a fire records management system, Visual Fire, to the San Antonio Fire Department in Texas.
The project will take place in two phases: phase one will implement Visual Fire’s national fire incident reporting system (NFIRS) module which will allow the San Antonio Fire Department (SAFD) to be in compliance with the FEMA NFIRS 5.0 national standard.
phase two will include the implementation of the entire Visual Fire software suite, and the expansion of the system from the city of San Antonio throughout all of Bexar County Fire Departments. Emergency Technologies’ (ETI’s) Visual Fire solution will allow the city and the county to have an integrated public safety information system to help streamline information sharing between the city and the county agencies.
According to ETI, Visual Fire is an application that integrates fire incident reporting, EMS patient care reporting, mobile field reporting, training and certification records, hydrant information and structural pre-plans, along with several additional modules that will provide the SAFD’s with modern technology that will increase operational efficiency throughout the departments.
Gar Keaton, president and CEO of Emergency Technologies, said: We are honored that Emergency Technologies has been selected as the exclusive provider of the fire records management system for San Antonio Fire Department. The Visual Fire solution will offer complete access to critical information in the station and in the field. In addition to helping streamline and automate administrative processes of the Fire Department.
