New clients are guided through the account activation and setup process by our team of implementation and training staff. To get you up and running as quickly as possible, a member of our implementation team will contact you to welcome you aboard and to discuss what we’ll need to get you started.

Once we’ve got your data imported, your account is created and configured with a few default settings, and a login and password are sent to you.

To help you make the most of Emergency Reporting, we offer a free two-hour training session to new clients within the first 60 days of activation. Our training staff are all active or retired firefighters who were once Emergency Reporting users, so they are uniquely qualified to help guide you through the system and make sure you feel comfortable with your account.

After onboarding, our support and training teams are always available to help answer your questions. We are passionate about getting you onboarded and off to a great start.

Check out what customers have said about why they chose Emergency Reporting:

Rick L. Young, Fire Prevention Officer/Investigator Castle Rock Fire and Rescue Department (CO)

“We switched from our old software program to the Emergency Reporting system 5 years ago, and it has been a great asset to our agency. ER is so easy to use and very powerful; inspections can easily be completed in the field or before departure. Anything we can do to make things safer and more efficient for our responders will enhance the safety of the community as a whole.”

Bill Gaughan, Asst. Fire Chief, Peters Township Fire Department (PA)

“We used FIREHOUSE Software for over ten years, and now our time to complete basic incident reporting is substantially less than before. We are also capturing data at a more useful level. We are very pleased with the ease of use of ER.”

Brian P. Kazmierzak, Chief of Training/Battalion 5C, Penn Twp. Fire Department (PA)

“We switched from FIREHOUSE to Emergency Reporting in 2012. ER is by far the easiest and most flexible fire RMS on the market. It’s simple and easy to use, with no-nonsense reports and analytics. We no longer waste time with data entry, server issues, or getting data out! It is all seamless with ER.”
