  State of Utah Fire Business System Wins Governor's Award


Gold Systems and the State of Utah's Forestry, Fire and State Lands Fire Program collaborated to create the Fire Business System. This application was recognized by Utah Governor Gary Herbert winning the Governor's Award for Excellence (Innovation and Efficiency). As described in the award:

Fighting fires is an extremely complex business that involves collaboration among local, state and federal agencies and entities, along with a multitude of data and inputs. For nearly two years, staff from Forestry, Fire and State Lands. Fire Program and Administrative Services, along with DTS, have been developing a cutting edge, web-based, fully automated Fire Business System. The system integrates state resources with the databases of local fire departments, federal fire management agencies and wildland fire databases.

What began as a relatively simple update has evolved into a ground-breaking new program for the Division.s existing method of handling fire business and finances. The system will be used for the first time this coming fire season and will completely transform how fires are managed.

It has taken courage, foresight, patience, ingenuity, vision, and long hours on the part of many employees to develop the new Fire Business System. There have been difficult conversations, tense meetings, and tough decisions, but this team has worked through it all to build a truly transformational system.

Because of their hard work and dedication, the system delivers Forestry, Fire and State Land and its partners from an outdated, entirely paper system to a technology-driven, fully digital experience. Welcome to the 21st Century
