At last, fall is in the air…cooler temperatures mean an even cooler training and learning opportunity coming up in November. This month’s UpdatER kicks off with this exceptional event.
ADAPT 2020 – The Virtual Event You Can’t Afford to Miss
ADAPT 2020 combines the best of ER’s online training, Regional Training Academies (RTA), and National Training Academies (NTA) into a three-day virtual event, globally sponsored by Microsoft. This 100% online summit spans three days and includes over 20 thought leaders from a wide range of disciplines. Eighteen of the 50+ sessions will be for ER training and live Q&A breakout sessions with our training team.
Some Serious Bang for Your Buck
With pricing starting at $99 per attendee (EARLY BIRD PRICING ENDS 10/19), ADAPT 2020 provides well over 50 hours of training – all sessions will be recorded and made available to attendees after the event. That way you can attend any session live and watch others later. Normally, online training with ER is $125 per hour. The entire summit is less than that. Let your training chief know you want to attend…there is no better value for your training dollars.
- Update to Report #1420 – Incident Count by Weekday and Hour for Zone for Shift for Date Range
Thanks to feedback from users, our dev team added a personnel picker to Report #1420. This report is particularly good for visualizing peak call volume by day of the week and by hour of the day. Now, you can filter by one or more personnel to ascertain when they run the most calls…nice!
- Update to Report #714 – Incidents for Zone for Date Range
Report #714 now has a very useful “multi-picker” for Zones.
- Update to Report #808 – Equipment List for Category for Subcategory with Assignment by ID
Attention asset managers, SCBA techs and anyone responsible for equipment in your agency, Report #808 now includes the following fields in its output: Model Number, Manufacture Date, Size, and In-Service Date.
Display Department Excellence and Reduce Insurance Premiums by Lowering Your ISO Score
Ultimately, a lower ISO classification reflects well on a fire department. Like accreditation, a good ISO fire rating demonstrates a commitment to excellence in your fire department and dedication to safety in the community.
In general, a better ISO score also helps reduce insurance premiums for property owners in your community. If you are interested in improving your ISO rating, download our free white paper and check out our ISO Resources page to find out how.
