    Our Dept. uses a software package from Emergency Software Products, Inc. Some of the Dept. in our area have changed from firehouse software to there package. I have seen firehouse and it does't compare. Also Emergency Software will customize the software for your use. We had our LOSAP added to the program.

    If you need any further information, you can e-mail me and I will send you a demo disk. Thnaks.

    My Department has used Firehouse Software for about 5 years. It does about 95% of our business for us and integrates extremely well with everything else we use.

    Our town's 5 fire departments all use Firehouse and our Town's Dispatch Center, Building Inspection/Code Enforcement Office and the Water Department now all use it.

    For the first time ever, 8 town departments can share and use the same information. "What a concept!"

    Firehouse is nice. It is time consuming once you start, but once you get use to it, it is very nice. You can also keep track of individuals training hours, meetings attended, payroll, personal information and is easy to transmit run reports to the state. Good Luck.

    The Dept I'm with uses Firehouse software, we really haven't had any problems, their customer support is great. Been using it for about 4 years now. I think a lot of the programs are about the same. What you have to look at is the company history and freq. of product updates and tech support. It's not going to do you any good is in 6 months the company folds and you left with a program that is dead in the water, and believe me you put a lot of time and effort into the start up of any program. Do your homework and I think in the long run you will make the right choose for your needs.
