Firehouse System Shutdown Notification

Jun 6, 2020

In an ongoing effort to transition from Firehouse software to the new Acadis/KyFIRES training system, the Kentucky Fire Commission has begun the process of migrating data. In order to ensure all data is transferred correctly and none missed, the Fire Commission will halt all records entry into the Firehouse system effective June 15, 2020 at the close of business.  

Departments will still be able to view reports in Firehouse until the transition to the KyFIRES system is completed, however, no data will be able to be entered into Firehouse during this time.  Should your department add new firefighters during this system shutdown, please complete the attached form, include all requested data, and submit via email to kyfires@kctcs.edu as soon as possible. The Fire Commission will maintain data from this form on a spreadsheet of new firefighters as a record to ensure volunteer firefighters are provided workers compensation coverage and career staff that are added are tracked.

Both records entry shutdown and the new firefighter application form will continue until your department becomes active in the Acadis/KyFIRES system. The go-live date for your department will occur on the 1st of the month following the month that your area was assigned training. The intent is to be 100% live in KyFIRES in all areas of the Commonwealth on September 1, 2020.

As a reminder of when your area will transition to KyFIRES, also attached is the notification of virtual training dates for the KyFIRES system that was sent to departments last week. More training will be added if needed after completion of the scheduled dates for the areas.  Keep in mind that you must pre-register for this training and only two members of your department can attend the training. Please only register for the session in your SFRT area.

We strongly believe the new training system will make for smoother, more user-friendly operations for Kentucky’s fire service. Thank you for your patience as we begin this transition.
