Personnel can check the schedule and make time-off requests on their personal phone or home computer. -- Timothy Smith, Deputy Fire Chief with Falmouth Fire Rescue, Falmouth, MA.
VERONA, N.Y. (PRWEB) June 06, 2018
The 112th annual FIRE 2018 -- the New York State Association of Fire Chiefs Conference -- will be held June 13-16 at Turning Stone Resort outside of Verona. The event is billed as the Northeast's premier emergency services conference, expo, and training event.
Representatives from Aladtec.com will be among the 300 exhibitors, displaying the latest services, tools, equipment, and apparatus for emergency services. Organizers expect up to 13,000 fire personnel to attend some or all of the conference.
Aladtec, a Sustaining Member of the NYSAFC, provides cloud-based scheduling and workforce management software to 65 New York public safety agencies. The firm will be among exhibitors at the conference. Two agencies who use Aladtec’s platform -- the Manlius Fire Dept. and Fayetteville Fire & EMS -- operate just a few miles from Verona.
The NYSAFC conference features 13 diverse and intensive Hands-On Training programs conducted by some of the country’s most seasoned fire service instructors. There will be more than 35 fire and EMS classroom educational programs. Session topics range from fighting the "Dreaded Commercial Building Fire" and whether to integrate Twitter into firehouse communications, to using drones and live video and "Top Ten Things that get Firefighters in Trouble."
Aladtec's software platform was created expressly for Public Safety agencies. It’s accessible anytime via computer, smartphone or other mobile devices. The easy-to-use application handles complex scheduling and unique rotation requirements used by many fire departments. It allows members to submit availability, request time off, and make shift trades from anywhere. The system was initially used for crew scheduling but has evolved into an all-in-one workforce management tool.
“The ability for our 70 members to be able to use their smartphones was also a selling point for us. Personnel can check the schedule and make time-off requests on their personal phone or home computer," said Timothy Smith, Deputy Fire Chief with Falmouth Fire Rescue, Falmouth, MA.

“Finding a workforce management system that's easy to use was our main focus. Aladtec is ideal because it's user-friendly for all levels of computer capabilities,” said Susan Cabot, secretary with Austintown Fire Department, Youngstown, OH.
More than 2,070 organizations subscribe to Aladtec’s online platform with more than 127,000 people using the system daily across America and Canada.
