7.12.15 Release Notes
These Release Notes are for Firehouse® release 7.12.15, and provide a listing of the defects resolved and the enhancements implemented during this release. The changes listed in the Release Notes apply to both FH® Standard and Enterprise editions.
Note: For optimum results, Firehouse recommends that FH Enterprise client computers and FH Standard computers be updated to .NET Framework 3.5.
The following issues were successfully resolved this release.
If there are multiple SQL databases in the FH Enterprise database list, and if network connectivity was lost when using FH Enterprise, the next time the user tried to log in, they received an access denied error when connecting to the SQL database for FH Enterprise.
If you add multiple system rules to a field that the NEMSIS code set also added system rules to, the user-defined system rules could become lost.
Batch-generated invoices were being created for accounts that were no longer active or were closed. Invoices are now generated only if the account is active or blank.
Invalid results appeared when running the Missing/Unused Incident Number report from 1/1/10 to the current date.
When a rule was created requiring hours and mileage in the Maintenance/Test record if the Inventory record's class code is apparatus, it appeared as expected through the Inventory module, but did not appear through the Journal module.
During a custom data import into the EMS module, the following error appeared.
ERROR: 12 Variable 'P_EMS_MAIN' is not found.
The NEMSIS demographic export for Florida needed to be validated in the same manner as the NEMSIS patient export.
When you chose Administration → System Rules and Default Values, and then in the System Rules and Default Values dialog box that appeared, you selected Ems_proc, Ems_meds, or Ems_vita and clicked Setup, and then used the lookup button to access the System Rule Expression dialog box while defining fields, the parameters available in the the System Rule Expression dialog box were not pulled from the
Ems_ptnt table as expected.
When a user entered data into a custom required user field for the Incident module and saved it, the entry appeared to be saved and indicated that it was complete, but the incident record was not saved and the following error message appeared.
Userfield is a required entry.
After updating to a newer version of FH, default value rules set on automatically populated fields (station, EMS service number, and so forth) based on default station or workstation location no longer set the priority of user-defined default rules over system default rules.
The following enhancements were implemented this release.
FH Standard now operates using Visual FoxPro 9.0 runtime files.
The FH Enterprise installation has been upgraded to include SQL Server Express 2008 R2 instead of SQL Server Express 2005.
The NFIRS export functionality has been updated in FH to be current with the NFIRS changes that will be effective January 1, 2012.
