    Check out this link:

    http://www.nfirs.fema.gov/index.shtm

    This is what we used until our state started offering the Firebridge program. It's easy to use, automatically sends your reports, and best of all it's FREE. It's web-based so you can access it from anywhere you have internet access (even smartphones, I checked it out on mine). It is very basic though, other than reports you can't do very much.

    Check out http://emergencyreporting.com/.

    The fee is based on the number of stations I believe, we pay about $1200/year if I remember right. The program is web based so you can log in from home to complete reports. We are a rural volunteer department and it works well for us and seems to be catching on with other departments around us.

    In addition to NFIRS reporting you can use Emergency Reporting to track assigned equipment, equipment/vehicle maintenance, training, hydrants and buildings, consumable inventory, scheduling, and run reports on any data that is put into the system (response time, call type, personnel participation, just about ANYTHING).

    I would definitely recommend it.

    Stay away from anything called VisionFire, VisionRMS, etc. Been a disaster since day one, and going on 6 years trying to get it to work right.

    While not a fan of the "promotion" you are doing here...I can vouch for your software. It does work well.

    Image Trend makes a good product for the price. It's web based so you can access it from any computer with an internet connection. If you choose to use their mobile software, you buy it once and can put it on as many computers as you want.

    It is especially affordable for small agencies since they charge per call instead of a fixed maintenance fee. Since we only answer 250 calls a year we pay much less than the yearly maintenance fee of the only other software we liked more.

    If money is no object, check out High Plains. They were the option we liked more, but were much more expensive. They are local to Denver, CO so many departments around here use it and like it.

    Are you talking about the license cost per computer? We have used FireManager, and I think the license was about $500 per desktop, and the mobile version was $200 per toughbook. I could be off, its been a while since the purchase. Here is the link

The county can't afford a program that cost $20,000 and $1,000 per fire department to use. Could anyone point me in the direction on information or on previous posts.
    We use Fire Programs to manage run reports, training reports, hydrant tests, fleet maintainence documentation, pump tests and other admin tasks. While it has it's negatives, overall it works for us.

    Can't tell ya much about the cost though.
