We hope you’re coping well during these dog days of summer despite the many challenges you’re facing. The team here at Emergency Reporting is still working remotely and continues to make enhancements to the system. These changes are intended to make your data management routine a little bit easier. Anything that can make our jobs less stressful this year is most welcome. Let’s dive right in.
Import Fire & Life Safety Codes
Your agency’s prevention and community risk reduction personnel can now easily embed fire and life safety codes into inspection forms. It’s a two-step process…Your complete fire and life safety code set can be imported (or manually added) into the Occupancy Module Settings and then inserted into an observation question when building an inspection form. Here’s the knowledge base article to get you started. Give this cool new feature a try!
