Weekly Summary
  • The Fire Commission held an assessment center, which is part of the promotional process for Fire and EMS Lieutenants, this week. All candidates that passed the written exam must participate in the assessment center. The assessment center puts candidates in real-life situations including personnel management problems, group presentations and incident management scenarios to test candidates' abilities functioning in the position(s) they are vying for.
  • A trainer from Crewsense, the Department's new employee scheduling/timekeeping software, was on site for two days this week assisting with system set up and providing training. The Department is planning a "go-live" for January 1, 2018.

    Crewsense is accessible via the internet and has a app for iOS, Android and Windows. The software is replacing the Department's current scheduling software which was not web accessible. The current program was acquired for the same annual support cost as the old program with no up front capital investment.
