Adding a Kind of Equipment

Categories and Kinds are how you will organize and define your equipment in Equipment Management.

Kinds should be a secondary broad statement describing your items of equipment. For example, in a category Medical Equipment, you could have kinds such as Defibrillators, Medical Tapes, Spinal Boards, Trauma Shears, and so on. You will need to set a type for your Kind, this will be either reusable, disposable or vehicle. 

⚠ī¸ ATTENTION: Before you can add Kinds, you must first add a Category above it.

  1. Go to Logistics > Equipment
  2. Go to the Categories tab and open the category where you wish to add kinds
  3. Click Add Kind
  4. Give the Kind a name and choose the type
  5. You can add Cost Per Hour and Cost Per Use for Reusable and Disposable Equipment. You can add Cost Per Mile and Cost Per Use for a Vehicle. 

ℹī¸ NOTE: Kinds are broken up into the following three categories:

  • Reusable Equipment - Choose this for your regular stock equipment that will be reused such as radios, rescue equipment or personal protective equipment. By choosing this type, the system will record the number of times used and the number of hours used which you can report on.
  • Disposable Supply - Choose this for disposable supplies such as medical supplies, bottled water or batteries.
  • Vehicle - Choose this for equipment where mileage is tracked. This kind type has specific default data fields for mileage & odometer readings, you can report on this too.
