Great tool for work This really is a useful application and I love that I have directions at the touch of a button. If I could ask for two things, it would be to have the notes on ALL calls....not just a select few, and to have our times.
NO IDEA WHY EVERY STATION DOESN'T USE THIS I had problem receiving alerts but was due to our fire station administrator setting my account up wrong. Not the apps fault. This app has improved my response time and location accuracy a great deal. No longer asking dispatch for a cross street or which unmarked house. Tech support is fantastic. No need for pagers with built in page recording, for the Garmin i just purchased, of missing a pager call due to signal strength, to write down or remember address or to turn on pager for your shift.
Buggy App is great for responses and for finding the location of incidents, however I have found a very big bug that will render my entire phone useless unless I remove the battery and restart my phone. When looking at the map of an incident location, and I turn my phone or tilt it to the side the app crashes and gives an 'unfortunately Active 911 has stopped working/running' and I am unable to exit out to the home screen or hold down the on/off button to power my phone down. I have to remove the batt. completely
Great tool The app is a great tool for the department. Allows officers to see hydrants and the oos ones so they can give propper hydrant assignments. We had a problem with the hydrants not showing up on our maps. That has now been fixed...was some kind of problem on the Active 911 side. The staff worked hard and fixed the problem now it works great! We put IPADS in the trucks with the app on it for the Officers to use as well as on the guys phones in the department.
Up and down Pop up response window is hit or miss whether your choice registers or not. When you open the full app, sometimes your response is selected (highlighted), and sometimes it isn't. Kind of a big deal for first responders trying to develop a plan in real time.
Automated voice feature An automated voice after the alert tone would be nice! Really love the work you guys are doing with this app.
