How to get started with Firebug RM™

Step 1:  Extinguishers and other safety devices are entered into the system and each is associated with an attached barcode label.  Inspection dates are recorded and the system is updated.  This would include monthly, semi-annual, annual, 5 year, 6 year and 12 year inspections. All this can be entered at the desktop or using the mobile hand held computer.  We can also assist with the importing of data into Firebug RM™.

Step 2: Once the data has been entered into the system, inspection schedules can be set up.  In Firebug RM™, these schedules are easily organized as inspection routes.  The routes are downloaded to the mobile computer and issued to inspectors. The inspectors are given a list of locations, extinguishers and safety devices.  As the extinguishers are inspected, they are removed from the route.  A route cannot be completed unless all the devices are accounted for.  In this way, it is assured that every device is inspected.

Step 3: Upon completion of a work day or periodically, the hand held mobile computer uploads the inspection results to the Firebug™ system.  Every safety device inspection is automatically date and time stamped along with the technician who completed it. Once the data is uploaded, many inspection reports are available.  These include the following.

  • Safety Device Inventory Reports
  • Inspections Due by Location or by Building
  • Inspections Past Due by Location or by Building
  • 5,6,12 year inspections Due – sorted by dates
  • Inspection Transaction Reports – sorted by dates
