Demand is rising for emergency medical services in communities served by volunteer fire departments. It's time for these agencies to consider adding rescue personnel to their rosters. While every region has its own needs, the general pattern is consistent.

To organize an EMS team, departments need to first understand what kinds of calls are being fielded, then appoint a medical director who can set up rules and policies to serve the community. Then, it's time to train the EMS volunteers and get them certified.

Daily management of a volunteer EMS workforce can be simplified using workforce management software designed for public safety. From coordinating schedules, to ensuring proper training and certification levels, to tracking all necessary equipment - this type of software can help agencies save time when coordinating volunteer efforts. What's more, EMS volunteers will be able to work more efficiently and stay focused on their vital role of saving human lives.

Thanks for watching and stay tuned for more news about managing the public safety workforce.
