Besides being a software engineer I also moonlight as a volunteer firefighter.  My fire district had a rudimentary website for many years before I decided it would be nice to upgrade it to something more modern.  I built the first new version on top of the SkyBlueCanvas CMS.  Later I rebuilt the site with the same design using Concrete5.

The new site provides news, an active calendar, and information for fire district and community members.  The most recent addition involved adding forms so that local residents could sign up for burn permits, request site evaluations for remodels and new construction, and other tasks.  These forms save residents and district staff time by enabling them to do tasks online which previously needed to be done in person and on paper.
