My name is Gary Hoffmann. I am a part of a volunteer fire company in North East Pennsylvania. We currently have about 40 "active" firefighters and fire police. Our company policies state each member must attend 50% of all fundraisers, drills and calls. We do not have a system to check that. There are members in our company who only attend calls but do not do their share in fundraisers, events, etc.
I am looking for a way to keep track of all fire company member attendance. I understand this is difficult for a volunteer company because of officer tones, pump details, business operations, etc. We tried a system about a year ago which failed.
If anyone could give me the way their company does it or have seen a way another company does it, it would be greatly appreciated.
P.S. We run bingo all year, every Tuesday. We have a mandatory bingo list which requires every member to work once every six weeks. Is there any way we can keep track of this as well?
