Every second counts in the fire and rescue service. When the police, fire department and ambulances responds to emergency calls, planning and coordination are critical factors for a timely intervention. SimaTech is now reinforcing its integrated support management system with the purchase of akutplan.dk, which is a turnkey solution for work scheduling for part-time fire departments.
Akutplan.dk was developed by Michael Winther, who, himself, has served as a part-time firefighter and therefore – on the basis of the actual planning process for the fire and rescue service at a fire station – saw the need for a web-based tool for creating work schedules.
Akutplan.dk was developed in cooperation with management and firefighters from fire and rescue services, to ensure optimal user-friendliness. It is possible to visualize the planning with graphs and numbers, and which skills are available. In case of low staffing, the management receives automatic text message notification.
