Integration with NFORS Allows Fire Departments to Leverage Response Data to Maximize Operational Effectiveness and Safety
Richmond and Chantilly, Va. – First Arriving, a leader in providing technology and marketing services for fire, EMS, and law enforcement agencies has partnered with the International Public Safety Data Institute (IPSDI) to deliver real-time intelligence to local fire departments by integrating National Fire Operations Reporting System (NFORS) with First Arriving Dashboards.
NFORS, is an intelligent platform with real-time analytics that can revolutionize a fire department. It is the quickest, most comprehensive way to leverage response data to maximize operational effectiveness and firefighter safety.
Coupling NFORS data connections and powerful analytics with First Arriving’s industry-leading in-station digital displays allows responding crews to gain insights from their emergency responses immediately upon returning to the station. The combined strengths of NFORS and First Arriving provides fire departments with the capability to set benchmarks and performance metrics that can be monitored at the company, shift, station, battalion, and department levels.
“Integration with NFORS gives our users the ability to analyze critical response data in real-time,” said Ross Hopkins, Product Director, Digital Dashboards, First Arriving. “Knowing whether your public safety organization is meeting performance metrics right after a call gives first responders the ability to optimize service delivery.”
Some departments already utilizing the integration of NFORS with First Arriving’s Digital Dashboards include Plainfield Fire Protection District in Plainfield, Ill., and Delray Beach Fire Rescue in Delray Beach, Fla.
“We are extremely pleased with the integration of NFORS into First Arriving. Having one location where our personnel can not only see valuable information, but response data as well keeps our personnel well informed,” said Vito Bonomo III, Deputy Chief, Plainfield Fire Protection District. “It also provides opportunities for us to make improvements based on data obtained from NFORS that can be viewed
from any of our fire stations within our fire district.”
First Arriving’s Digital Dashboard systems service fire departments, EMS, law enforcement, courts, and local governments. From small volunteer departments to some of the nation’s largest public safety agencies, First Arriving’s Dashboards now serve departments in more than 30 states coast-to-coast.
