# Equipment and Apparatus
FIREQ can track equipment and apparatus. The equipment and apparatus modules allow firefighters to log equipment, to whom it was assigned, maintenance schedules, expiry dates, equipment location and other relevant information. Equipment lists are also easily generated allowing regular inventory and truck checks to ensure readiness. FIREQ also generates alerts about equipment certifications nearing expiry. These alerts will be displayed on a banner within the software, as well as push notification reminders to the Fire Chief.
