What comes to mind when you think of summer? Maybe it’s vacation time or travel. Maybe it’s cold drinks and popsicles. Or maybe it’s the fact that summer is an incredibly busy time for fire protection professionals. With the clock ticking on accreditation deadlines and a rush trying to get inspections done before the cold winter months, there’s a lot to get done. But with the right support for staff at every level and a workflow that helps you get things done rather than slowing the process, you can manage the rush, grow your business, and still have time for that vacation.

Provide Your Team with Adequate Support

Technicians and back-office staff alike are juggling lots of moving parts during the busy summer months. Increased fire inspection and service visit volume, tight schedules and time off, and challenges that come with warmer weather mean your staff can use some additional support.

During July and August–the hottest months of the year in many places–make sure your field staff are ready to recognize heat exhaustion and have easy access to water while on visits. Schedule time for “cool down” breaks during extreme conditions if necessary. Your staff in the field are working hard to complete inspections and tackle the summer to-dos, but they’ve got to stay healthy to stay productive.

Before the summer rush, it’s a good time to consider maintenance on tools, equipment, and vehicles used for inspections and service visits. When was the last time the truck’s tires were checked and rotated or the oil changed? What about the equipment your techs use to complete inspections? Going into summer with well-maintained equipment and accurate inventories will reduce challenges later on when your staff won’t necessarily have the capacity to fix problems on the fly.

Save Time with an Optimized Workflow

In addition to making sure your staff are equipped to handle the summer workload well and have the support they need, it’s important to provide the right tools and training. By simplifying processes, from communication to creating reports, you allow your staff to focus on the things they do best without time-sucking obstacles.

Summer is an incredibly busy time for fire inspection professionals.

A system that helps technicians and office staff communicate with each other and with clients is essential. Start by automating reminders for customers and ensuring technicians aren’t double-booked or scheduled during their time off–especially during the summer months when everyone is traveling more. Effective scheduling and dispatching ensures field staff and your customer point-of-contact are ready to go when it’s inspection time.

Ensuring techs have the correct forms every time can be a headache when they’re working with different clients who have different AHJs and reporting requirements. Finding a tool that always has the most up-to-date, code-compliant forms is a must to make the fire inspection process easier, saving time and allowing techs to get more done.
