Crisisworks FPN is your complete system for managing the whole process from start to end.

Crisisworks FY19 now includes Fire Prevention at no additional charge and available to all Victorian councils.

Gain the benefits of a seasoned compliance system having generated tens of thousands of compliance notices over the past four years.


About Crisisworks Fire Prevention

Since 2012, Crisisworks Fire Prevention has been used by over 20 Victorian Local Governments. They have generated over 60,000 records with over 20,000 notices issued.
During this time it has matured with features added to assist in making the whole process from start to end more efficient than ever before.
By using Crisisworks for Fire Prevention, you will:

  • Save money — no additional costs for existing customers if using the standard FPN module
  • Increase accuracy —  eliminate invalid notices and missing photos and record your inspectors’ routes as they drive, to provide a full audit in case you need it later.
  • Be more effective — capture, store and link evidence to notices automatically, mail merge your photographic evidence into your notices,
  • Relax — inspecting properties, keeping track of re-inspections, and managing and coordinating contractors takes time and effort. Crisisworks helps by providing full end-to-end workflow, in-field automation and contractor assignment and self-service to streamline the whole process from start to finish.
We have used Crisisworks for our Municipal Risk program for 4-5 years, it saves us lots of time from start to end, especially with the subcontractor management. Saving the routes and selecting nearby assets visually are a couple of our favourite features
