Civil Unrest: Fire Service Preparedness, Trends, and Staffing Solutions

Learn the results of a FireRescue1 survey on whether fire departments are prepared for civil unrest.

Civil unrest is a growing concern for fire departments. Learn what department personnel say about response readiness in a FireRescue1 survey, and how UKG TeleStaff™ delivers automated scheduling with built-in communication that supports civil unrest preparedness.

About 60% of survey respondents said their fire departments had responded to a civil unrest incident in the past five years, but 60% also said their departments were not ready to respond to a large-scale disturbance and a third are still using manual methods to deploy responders.

Fire departments that utilize UKG TeleStaff technology to contact and deploy fire department personnel during a civil unrest incident can:

  • Track personnel skills and certifications in the solution to quickly identify right-skilled first responders
  • Contact and deploy responders through automated texts, emails, or phone calls
  • Balance deploying special teams and maintaining necessary fire suppression staffing
