Press Release: Braidwood Fire Department Replaces Antiquated Scheduling Process with FIRE Manager

Embracing new technology to perform old tasks is easier than you think and the 54 firefighters at the Braidwood Fire Department are among the the many who can tell you themselves. With staff as young as 18 and as experienced as 60, it was assumed that rolling out a system like FIRE Manager and training everyone would be a lengthy process. But that wasn't the case at all.

"Not all of them are comfortable with computers," recalls Kristin Wexell, Administrative Assistant at the Braidwood Fire Department, "but they were all able to be trained on FIRE Manager and easily transitioned to the new scheduling program. Prior to this, they filled out an availability sheet each month and some of the guys were scared of using a computer scheduling program - but I never had to train a person on the program more than once,” adds Wexell. “Every firefighter at our department is able to use this program and it was easy to implement.”

Our thanks to Kristin and everyone at the Braidwood Fire Department for choosing FIRE Manager!
