    Default Team Management Software

    My regional hazmat team currently uses several excel spreadsheets to track team training hours, fit testing, equipment inventory, etc. We use a gmail calendar and a yahoo group to stay in touch with team members.

    There has got to be a better way to do it!

    Is anyone using a software system (purchased or homemade) to help track/manage their hazmat team?

    We use Decisions for Heroes (D4H) to manage our hazmat team, we're pretty happy with it. It contains our roster, training records, incident reports, and equipment inventory.

    It is pretty interactive, so our members can share a calendar, check yes/no if they are coming to training, and participate or vote on team discussions.

    Default RE: Team Management Software

    Thanks for the link. I just signed up for a free trial. It looks like this may do everything we need it to and more.

    I see it allows you to set up "custom analytics" what type of things is your team tracking?

    PS - Does anyone know of any other similar programs so I can compare them?

    The software tracks and creates reports of the usual stuff like response times, equipment used, and members attendance automatically.

    As for the custom analytics, we track incidents and training by DOT hazard class, level of PPE used, and team response level (duty officer, 1,2 or 3).

    I really like that D4H is always adding new features that are requested by users. (Nice when a vendor actually listens to the customer!) They just added Emergency Contacts for each member, and the ability to track what ICS role each team member served during and incident or training.

    I'm not aware of any other programs for team management.
