The IDIP Team is developing software that will calculate fair share costing and staffing levels for dispatch centers, as one of their key deliverables. Dispatch centers can continue to use FireOrg software until launch of the Interagency Fair Share Cost Analysis Tool (FCAT) software application.  FireOrg, developed in 2001, is an analysis program to determine workload and calculate cooperator fair-share costs for dispatch operation.  There is no helpdesk or other support for FireOrg but there is a new enhanced FireOrg User Guide (PDF, 443 KB) available, prepared by IDIP member Richard Wilson.  If you have any questions or comments about the User Guide, please contact
