High rise fires
« on: May 17, 2019, 11:25:29 AM »
On 10-77/76, does the first due battalion go into the fire floor? Does the safety chief go in? I noticed on some I see the chiefs with their SCBAs on.

Going to take a page out of the Operations reference book and hope it helps.


Chief Officers:

All chief officers and aides report to the command post with their post radios.

The first battalion chielf to arrive is the inital Incident Commander, establishes a command post, and gives the second engine officer a post radio to take to the Fire Sector. The building internal communication system, if there is one, may be used to direct and control evacuation. The IC announces the attack and evacuation stairs, relays information from the dispatcher and the lobby phone system to Operations and Search and Evacuations, stages units in the lobby, controls elevators, and uses the third and fourth engine company chauffeurs to handle occupant calls.


The second battalion chief is the Fire Sector (fire floor and floor above) supervisor and manages the first and second hose lines as well as WCD & HRN operations. Other tasks include controlling ventilation ordered by the Incident Commander, keeping the evacuation stairway smoke free and the attack stairway uncrowded.

The Deputy Chief becomes the Incident Commander; the original IC generally is assigned to assist but may be used in another role. A command radio channel is established when more than one group or sector is operating. The IC ensures sufficient resources are available, checks search status, and develops alternate attack strategy if needed.


Hope this helps if not sorry
Remember to take it coming in

Is this what you are thinking of:
There are Logistic Units on both the fire and EMS sides. 
One carries a large supply of rail carts. Some carry extra batteries, saw blades, etc. for extended operations.  On the EMS side they carry bulk medical supplies including backboards and oxygen.

Note: WCD= Wind Control Device (fire blanket)
& HRN= High Rise Nozzle

When does a chief above Division get called (e.g.; borough command, operations, etc.).   Or do they self assign themselves based upon incident?

Also, I have seen run downs with a chief of specialized area, such as training or other area.  Do all such senior officers have shifts on duty/call?

Thx
