Emergency Reporting Releases Guide to Help Fire Chiefs Prepare for ISO Audit and Improve their Department’s ISO Rating

Dealing with an upcoming ISO audit can be incredibly stressful and time-consuming. Learn how many departments are improving their score by using powerful records management software.

 

Bellingham, WA December 10, 2018 – Emergency Reporting (ER), a leader in cloud-based Fire and EMS records management, has released a new white paper titled, “Improving Your ISO Score with Fire/EMS Records Management Software,” that explains how fire departments can use records management software (RMS) like Emergency Reporting to prepare for an upcoming ISO audit and even improve their ISO rating.

The free white paper features Administration Major David Richardson of Midwest City Fire Department in Oklahoma, who led his department through three ISO audits and successfully used ER to achieve a top ISO Class 1 each time. Not only has Major Richardson led his department through several successful audits, but he was also an ISO rep for seven years prior to working in the fire service. He offers his expertise on ISO audits and experience with the ER system throughout the report.

Improving Your ISO Score with Fire/EMS Records Management Software” covers the basics of the ISO Public Protection Survey and how the rating scale works, the four areas that ISO grades departments on, and the specific ER reports or data that will be useful. It also covers goals and advice for how to prepare and the twelve ER modules that Major Richardson says Midwest City FD uses every single day.

Whether an agency has been through several ISO audits or has not had one yet, this white paper offers valuable advice and tips that will come in handy the next time ISO comes to town.
