Increased Importance of Accreditation, Greater Data Accessibility, Increasing Budget Scrutiny Will Be Key Themes in 2018
AUSTIN, Texas, Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- ESO Solutions, the leading data and software company serving emergency medical services, fire departments and hospitals, today shared the industry predictions that will have the biggest impact on fire departments in 2018: Accreditation will continue to grow in importance; data will play a more and more important role in fire prevention, responder safety, fire suppression and responding timely to emergency events; budget scrutiny will play an increasingly prominent role; and hiring and retaining talent will be critical as leadership retires.
"2018 will create both opportunities and challenges for fire departments," said Shelley Koegler, Vice President of ESO Fire Products. "With greater financial scrutiny, fire departments will need to rely more heavily on data to show value. Additionally, accreditation will play a key role for fire departments to help with grants and other funding needs. We'll also see an accelerated departure of key leadership in fire departments, highlighting the need to attract and retain key talent, as well as preserve institutional knowledge."
Key Firefighting Predictions for 2018:
"Organizations that monitor these trends and adjust accordingly will see the most success going forward," added Koegler.
