Just an FYI:
10-75 is a "request" for a full first alarm assignment including special units.
ALL HANDS is a notification signal that all first alarm units are operating.
Don't confuse the two.

Upon receipt of numerous sources for a fire location, the dispatchers have usually 4 engines, 3 trucks*, rescue and squad respond. That is what the assignment would be upon a 10-75 signal received from a first arriving unit, hence "loading up the box."
* One truck is designated as the "FAST" truck.

Ok. So does this mean dispatch gets the units that would roll for a 10-75 in route before a 10-75 is confirmed since the multiple calls are corroborating a fire?

Correct. The only units that don’t go are the Division, 10-75 chief, the RAC and the FAST truck

For reference see attached

"Loading the Box" is influenced by both the number of calls (or Boxes pulled IF they are working) = "QUANTITY" of calls ..... plus the "QUALITY" of the calls picked up on by an experienced Dispatcher as they interview the caller.
