UKG Crisis Management for Public Safety

Automated scheduling helps public safety agencies notify employees, recover emergency staffing costs

During natural or man-made disasters, public safety agencies must act fast. Discover how an automated staff management solution quickly deploys staff during a crisis, contacting and sending the right responders to the scene, and supports complete staffing cost recovery.

In a survey conducted by UKG (Ultimate Kronos Group) in conjunction with PoliceOne, FireRescue1, and EMS1, more than 52% of responding agencies still use phone trees to call in off-duty personnel during emergencies ― adding additional time when responders are needed on the scene.

Using an automated scheduling and notification solution, such as UKG TeleStaff™, enables public safety agencies to:

  • Contact responders via interactive voice response and text messages to get them on the scene of a crisis quickly
  • Ensure positions are filled according to skill and certification requirements
  • Comply with complex labor laws, union rules, and fatigue restrictions when scheduling responders
  • Maintain an accurate accounting of expenses and staff time spent managing the crisis for simplified cost recovery

“Scheduling used to consume nine hours a day when I was working with a staff of 36. Now we’re at a staff of 122, but since we’ve had the TeleStaff solution up, I can honestly say it takes us maybe five minutes a day.”
