FireWire
DESCRIPTION
FireWire is a mobile app solution for New York Fire Department firefighters to track their schedule and trade their shifts using a unique trade board system. It also allows for the public to stay up to date on related news.

Problem

New York City Firefighters had an outdated system of trading shifts - it was a coffee stained notebook.

Solution

Build a seamless way to trade shifts and allow firefighters to have more flexibility in their work schedules.

Results

Trades are first posted with respect to rank and then prioritized by firehouse location - providing efficient and flexible scheduling.

How We Solved The Problem

FireWire is capable of allowing firefighters to easily keep track of shifts as well as the shifts of their partners, while providing a platform to trade shifts across various criteria.

Tracking

We Put FireFighters in Control

FireWire makes it easy for firefighters to keep track of shifts because it has specific options for certain duties and keeps track of vacation hours, overtime hours, and which shifts you've had and when.

We Modernized the System

FireWire's Trade Board allows firefighters to keep track of who they've switched with and when they've switched trades, as well as post the requested shift change to a public forum. From the forum, trades can be proposed, approved, and declined.

Public

We Brought Information to the Public

The FireWire section of the app, open to the public, shows a live feed of fire news and dispatched so you can stay informed.
