On the VFD side for context. The information that comes through is incredibly useful before I get on scene. That being said, I am an incredibly heavy sleeper and the text messages just do not get to job done of waking me up. Having an alert that can be pushed while still having the texts would be incredibly helpful.

Started doing volunteer firefightering. Since I don't have a pager this app is my go to to respond to calls. Like other users I normally get texts messages notifying me on calls. Which is great, a notification text is sent my way but have to manually open the rover app to get specific details. I really wish there was a way to have the app itself notify me and have the texts as a secondary alert. When I say I'm a heavy sleeper, I'm a VERY HEAVY sleeper so having dual notificaction would be ideal!

It's OK but don't like that the call has to be cleared, if an officer forgets the next call you see the call before, not a good system, once a call comes in it should automatically clear its self not have to manually do it. In the back country going to a call and it comes up as the old one if you don't catch it your going to the wrong address. Could be a lot simpler if you ask me. Used other apps for fire dept that were a lot simpler and easier to use. Hope you make some changes.
