Client: Portage Volunteer Fire Company
Category: Fire Department
The Portage Volunteer Fire Company provides fire protection, rescue detail, and quick response services to the residents of Portage, PA. Portage VFC consists of 40 active volunteers operating out of two stations. They are dispatched to about 350 alarms annually.
Portage VFC’s goal is to respond as many qualified volunteers as necessary to the scene with as little delay as possible. They needed an app that could improve their daily operations and enable them to be quickly and accurately informed of available responders and out of service responders. According to Assistant Fire Chief Andrew Myers, who had experience with other software programs in the past, they looked into the available options and decided that Rover stood out from the rest. We spoke with Asst. Chief Myers to find out how Portage VFC is benefitting from choosing Rover.
