We took a fresh look at the NFIRS user interface to ensure better data reliability and more accurate reporting while eliminating the possibility of inconsistencies around the reporting of similar incidents. A number of enhancements have been made to avoid NFIRS code confusion.

Real-time, accurate, accessible Pre-Fire Planning is critical for effective fire-fighting operations. The ultimate aim of the StationSmarts records management system is to enable SMART FIRE FIGHTING by delivering useful information to the first responders who need it, when they need it – before, during, and after a fire incident or other emergency. StationSmarts enables the creation, storage, exchange, analysis, and integration of data.
With Fire Codes embedded into a smart checklist, StationSmarts’ inspection module enables fire prevention staff to manage and schedule inspections, track past violations, generate and distribute certifications and code violations, all from a tablet or iPad. This checklist method ensures consistency, portability of code references, and easy retrieval of prior inspections. Additionally, inspections can be sent to property owners as a PDF while still on the inspection site. No additional data entry is required back at the office, and all inspections are automatically linked to the property address.
Audit history of failed inspection detail
Link inspections to site address
Issue PDF compliance or noncompliance while still on site
Activity Tracker is essentially a log book on steroids, an automated and easy way to maintain, track and filter specific department actions, organized by category and date. Information captured in the activity tracker populates related modules, eliminating the need for duplicate data entry.
The Training & Credentialing module keeps track of employees’ progress as they maintain important credentials, certifications, and licenses. Users easily run reports to see whose license, or credential is expiring or approaching expiration. Access comprehensive training and compliance records for ISO reviews or cases of litigation using simple documentation on those eligible to be on a Task Force or Tech Rescue Team.

StationSmarts stands apart from its competition.
Deputy Chief Mark NelsonMilford, Massachusetts
StationSmarts is exactly what I was looking for.
Chief Richard WhiteNatick, Massachusetts
It is as if the StationSmarts team read my mind. Their system operates exactly as I expected it would.
Chief Michael SpanknebelHadley, Massachusetts
It was important to me that our command staff accept the system, and they did completely.
Chief Richard DeLorieWellesley, Massachusetts
You should look at this program. It’s fantastic because it is practical and dynamic, changing and evolving to meet the needs of the departments that use it. It can be utilized in so many ways and even better, it’s strictly fire based. This is the product you want for your department.
Chief Christopher OlsenCotuit, Massachusetts
Ultimately, this system will enable us to be even more efficient and effective in serving our community. And that is our principal goal.
Chief Thomas RulloMashpee, Massachusetts
I’m looking forward to having StationSmarts achieve our primary goal: to create a centralized repository of all the department’s key data so that it can be managed, analyzed and shared both internally and externally. I’m also expecting StationSmarts to play a big role with helping us gain accreditation by the Center for Public Safety Excellence.
Chief Scott PartingtonNarragansett, Rhode Island
I secured funding through an EMPG grant to purchase this new software. A big selling point for me was that StationSmarts is mobile and cloud-based and works well in the field, vs. a program that is primarily server-based. Founders, Dave and Greg offer fantastic customer service and work hard to keep us moving forward.
Chief Charles DoodyCanton, Massachusetts
I felt this product would allow me to move Harwich off the clipboard and onto a digital/tablet platform. I like that StationSmarts is local, accessible and responsive.
Deputy Chief Dave LeBlancHarwich, Massachusetts
StationSmarts and its approach to development and customer service has exceeded my lofty expectations.
