MACEDON, NY—Fire, rescue and EMS companies increase volunteer involvement, retention and safety with Magnatag’s new magnetic Training-Tracker whiteboard.
“In the past we had no accountability; some members dropped out of their training classes, they became forgotten, left behind or resigned from the company altogether because of it. This magnetic tracking board system has streamlined our whole information sharing process. Now officers have an up-to-date list they can consult and use to promote member involvement and retention,” says a Maryland volunteer fire company officer. He adds, “The board is a focal point for new members. It helps us keep track of new member information and their training progress so we know what positions they are cleared for. Leadership can see at a glance who is progressing quickly and who needs help in a class. With the board there are no more outdated spreadsheets or waits for updates from the computer.”
“Our fire and emergency management customers tell us the board has a motivational effect on everyone,” says Christian Krapf, spokesperson for Magnatag. “Their volunteers want to be recognized for the time and effort they put into their training. A perfect row of green magnets showing completed trainings and certifications next to their name is a great source of pride.”
Krapf continues, “We’ve made the board easy to set up and use. It comes with everything needed to operate it, including Flip-Over Do-Done magnets to show training status.”
You can custom-print your board title and training-protocol column-headings at no extra cost as you order it online. The Training-Tracker board systems come in five sizes, ready-to-use with magnets and everything needed to operate them. They hold from 20 to 120 volunteers on a single board and are made for a lifetime of daily use with permanently heat-fused printed lines on porcelain-like steel and top-quality whiteboard construction.
