Running calls without computers is the easy part (as long as a sound backup dispatch system is in place). Though I suppose a very small, low run volume department could run quite effectively without much technology, the benefit offered by technology has become critical larger departments.
Think of everything a department does even in excess to administrative functions (payroll, billing, logistics, etc). Permits, plan review, education, code enforecement, pre-incident planning, stategic planning..... I could keep going for a while. Many of these operations depend on information from the field and without computers, it would be very time/manpower intensive to collect, synthesize, and diseminate this info. We'd never be able to get a solid information picture to direct the efforts of those functions.
