Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service (MWWFRS) has invested in a cloud platform to combine its data on maintenance, fleet tracking and firefighting assets.

It has entered a partnership with Civica to implement its TranSend fleet management software to provide a single view of all assets in one database and provide a supplier portal.

This will support the service’s financial planning and is expected to offer better visibility of whole life costs, along with reducing the risk of data duplication and error and saving time for employees.

Stephen Davies, head of fleet, engineering and logistics at MWWFRS, said: “The fire and rescue service is unique in having so many smaller, risk-critical assets which require varying degrees of tracking and maintenance, especially after large scale incidents.

“Working with Civica as a trusted partner, this platform will meet all of our fleet and asset needs. TranSend will mean we have the right appliances and equipment in the right place at the right time, ensuring a better, safer service for the communities we serve right across mid and west Wales.”  

MWWFRS employs approximately 1,400 members of staff and covers almost 12,000 sq km, around two-thirds of Wales.
