Dave Rocco isn’t surprised to hear StationSmarts customers say, “This is the exact program I have been looking for!” Before their product launched, he and business partner, Greg Pica worked closely with a small group of Massachusetts fire chiefs, collecting their wishlist for an effective, easy-to-access records management system. Today, the StationSmarts team continues to consult with fire personnel to perfect the design and functionality of the software. Dave plays a critical role in that effort, establishing strong relationships with area departments and meeting in person with chiefs and staff members to demonstrate StationSmarts, train new users and answer questions. Prior to founding StationSmarts, Dave consulted for Purvis, where he worked on the development of a fire station alerting system. During that time he became aware of the significant limitations of the standard records management software being used by fire departments, deciding to address these problems with StationSmarts. Dave also serves on the NFPA Technical Committee on Data Exchange for the Fire Service. The committee is responsible for establishing criteria for the exchange and use of data critical to decision making in all phases of fire service: administration, planning, prevention, preparedness, mitigation, response and recovery. In his free time, Dave enjoys photography, a talent he has integrated into his work with StationSmarts.
