Fishers Fire Department Continues to Lead its Industry by Adding New Innovations

The Fishers Fire Department began the transition to a full-career department in 1989. Since then, we have progressed from an all-volunteer department to employing more than 120 career firefighters/EMT’s or paramedics. The Department provides service to more than 50 square miles of single and multiple-family dwellings, as well as clean industrial and high-end technology parks.

There are seven stations that are covered by three shifts, each operating for 24 hours at a time. Each shift consists of a battalion chief, captain, lieutenants, and Firefighters with EMT or Paramedic training. Each category of personnel has a minimum training requirement based on the Indiana Firefighter Certification Program and the National Fire Protection Agency Professional Standards. To properly serve our citizens it is essential we remain proactive and have the foresight to plan and build as needed.

Fishers Fire Department is starting out with narcotics tracking utilizing RFID for 24/7 365 real time tracking. This allows them to have full visibility with Knox Box integration they have the who, what, when and where of each and every narcotic in their possession.

This will give them full operational visibility enterprise wide for all assets and inventory. Furthermore, checklists, check-in/out, service tracking as well as many other facets of tracking is done via intelliView from Silent Partner Technologies.
