The Oxnard (CA) Fire Department will deploy Emergency Technologies, Inc. (ETI) Visual Fire, a Fire Records Management System (Fire RMS), which is designed to provide responders with access to mission-critical data that will help improve firefighter safety and increase efficiency and effectiveness in federal and state reporting requirements.

ETI will begin implementing Visual Fire later this year as part of a comprehensive public safety software modernization effort. Visual Fire will provide Oxnard Fire Department with highly configurable software that will help streamline field and station electronic reporting.

The Visual Fire solution is a suite of modules that includes fire incident reporting, fire inspections, mobile field reporting, training and certification records, hydrant information and structural preplans, along with several additional modules that will provide the Oxnard Fire Department with modern technology to improve data management and integrity throughout the system.

We are honored to partner with the Oxnard Fire Department, and look forward to a successful implementation. “said Kyle Breischaft, president and chief executive officer ofEmergency Technologies, Inc.
