- Department Name: Perth Fire Services
I use pen and notebook. While I do have a tablet available, and do use it in the field for some aspects of my job, inspections and investigations isn’t one of them. I only have experience with our current software and it is not user friendly for inspections – at least not without a TON of back-end setup. Some of the other programs might be more user friendly but I simply don’t have experience with them.
For efficiency in the field, it’s hard to beat my pen and notebook. There might be a bit more work back in the office to type up an Order than if a program did if for me but we aren’t there yet.
Kevin, going away from tablets, did you go back to pen or something else?
