While working as a volunteer firefighter in Sedro-Woolley, Washington, Adrian Mintz realized that gathering data for fire and EMS incidents was a problem for their multi-agency district. Being the owner of a GIS consulting company, Adrian had a bright idea: combine a web-based records management service with high-tech GIS reporting capabilities. In pursuit of his plan, Adrian sought out a web-development specialist named Dave Adams. Dave and Adrian began to formulate a web-based system used for data collection and analysis and soon, Emergency Reporting was born.
Emergency Reporting made major advancements with the basic incident reporting system by integrating the NHTSA 2.0 NEMSIS dataset standard with the NFIRS data set. Emergency Reporting was the first in the country to offer web-based NFIRS and NEMSIS fully integrated with modules for daily operations.
Emergency Reporting became an approved vendor on the GSA Schedule under contract number GS-35F-0345S (Reporting Systems, Inc.). The GSA Schedule allows government entities to purchase Emergency Reporting services direct with no competitive bid.
Emergency Reporting was awarded NEMSIS Silver (currently Gold) Certification. Our customers receive all NEMSIS updates at no cost or effort.
Emergency Reporting received the NEMSIS Gold Certification. The certification validated our solution as the only online system with NEMSIS Gold, NFIRS, Risk Assessment, all capable of being fully integrated with 17 useful modules for daily operations.
Emergency Reporting begins testing and development of mobile apps for smartphones and tablets. The company continues to grow significantly, and Emergency Reporting will continue to improve the way first responders can maximize our records management and supporting tools, for the good of their agency and the communities they serve.
Emergency Reporting, working with the CFAI (Commission Fire Accreditation International), released VISION risk-assessment software to support the accreditation process.
Emergency Reporting celebrated five years of business. What started as a good idea had grown into a reporting and records management solution for the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, NASA, airports, CDC, a nuclear power facility, ambulance services, hospitals, oil refineries and other agencies with first response capabilities world-wide.
Key developments in 2010 included Emergency Reporting establishing strategic relationships with Spillman Technologies, Inc. and MED3000, Inc. The relationships provided first response customers with valuable interface tools for real-time CAD data input and EMS billing data exports.
