The winter holiday season should be a joyous time. A time when friends and families come together and celebrate. However, it is also one of the times when homes and businesses are more at risk from certain kinds of fires.
In the United States alone, between 2010 and 2014, Christmas trees were the item first ignited in an estimated average of 210 reported home structure fires per year, resulting in an annual average of six civilian fire deaths, 16 civilian fire injuries, and $16.2 million in direct property damage, and on average, one of every 31 reported home Christmas tree fires resulted in a death, compared to an average of one death per 144 total reported home fires.
While the majority of the people get to spend more time surrounded by their loved ones, there are others, like the volunteers of emergency services, who often see a rise in emergency calls and can’t decline the commitment of helping their neighbors out.
The gift of time and freedom
At FireServiceRota, we believe that firefighters should get the opportunity to enjoy as much time as possible with their families and loved ones too. But they should also have the certainty that their fire station will always be available to respond to emergencies within minutes.
By managing their own schedule with a system designed to proactively warn and prevent understaffing, volunteer fire crews can assure the readiness of their stations without the need to page every single member for every call and, of course, avoiding the need to set rigid or complicated schedules.
At FireServiceRota we have been helping volunteer firefighters for over a decade to manage their dynamic schedules to allow them to balance work, family and volunteering commitments seamlessly.
