PRESS RELEASE

First Due ranked #1 Fire & EMS software provider on 2022 Inc. 5000 list


NEW YORK – Today, Inc. revealed that First Due is ranked as the #1 Fire & EMS software provider, #175 in all software companies, and #1349 overall on its annual Inc. 5000 list, the most prestigious ranking of the fastest-growing private companies in America. The Inc.5000 list delivers a one-of-a-kind look at the most successful companies within the economy’s most dynamic segment—its independent businesses. First Due joins many other hypergrowth B2B SaaS companies on the Inc. 5000 list -- a notable benchmark in becoming established market leaders in their respective niches.

"We’re so thankful to our customers, partners, team members and the Fire and EMS industry as a whole for helping us achieve this incredible milestone,” CEO Andreas Huber says. “We’re honored to be recognized by Inc. and proud of what we’ve achieved to get here. Our mission – to help save lives through better emergency management and incident response software – is what drives us every day.”

Since its launch in 2016, First Due has established its presence as a leader in Fire & EMS technology. First Due’s future-forward, all-in-one solution solves the massive software challenges facing fire agencies across North America, plagued with outdated and unsupported legacy software and manual, time-consuming processes. The First Due suite gives municipalities what they’ve never had before – the ability to run their entire operations on a single platform.

The First Due suite encompasses all corners of Fire & EMS records management, including Incident Reporting (NFIRS & ePCR), Scheduling & Personnel Management, Assets & Inventory Management, Fire Prevention, Mobile Response, Training & Certification Management, Community Engagement, as well as Pre-Incident Planning -- where First Due entered the Fire and EMS software space six years ago.

“Our platform is truly a testament to our customers, first and foremost,” explains Huber. “We built First Due in response to what fire chiefs said they needed the most. It’s as simple as that.”

Among the top 5000, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.

Companies included in the 2022 Inc. 5000 have not only been successful but have also demonstrated resilience in the face of countless changes to the global business environment since the outbreak of Covid-19 and shift in the way teams collaborate remotely.

“We responded to the pandemic by establishing a remote work model that has not only allowed for our success, but in many ways has served as an asset to our continued growth,” Huber says. “We’ve been able to create an incredible team made up of location-independent industry and functional experts – harnessing top talent to make First Due’s growth not only a reality, but a destiny.”

Complete results of the Inc. 5000, including company profiles and an interactive database that can be sorted by industry, region, and other criteria, can be found at www.inc.com/inc5000. The top 500 companies are featured in the September issue of Inc. magazine, which will be available on August 23.

Methodology
Companies on the 2022 Inc. 5000 are ranked according to percentage revenue growth from 2018 to 2021. To qualify, companies must have been founded and generating revenue by March 31, 2018. They must be U.S.-based, privately held, for-profit, and independent—not subsidiaries or divisions of other companies—as of December 31, 2021. (Since then, some on the list may have gone public or been acquired.) The minimum revenue required for 2018 is $100,000; the minimum for 2021 is $2 million. As always, Inc. reserves the right to decline applicants for subjective reasons. Growth rates used to determine company rankings were calculated to four decimal places. The top 500 companies on the Inc. 5000 are featured in Inc. magazine’s September issue. The entire Inc. 5000 can be found at  http://www.inc.com/inc5000.
