I know that protocol calls for a responding BC to transmit an "all-hands" with any responding unit to a box able to designate a 10-75. Can an officer in a responding company transmit an "all-hands" before the chief arrives at the box? And, can any unit officer, upon arrival at the box, call for a "second alarm", prior to the chief's arrival?

Although it?s not very common, companies have transmitted Second Alarms on arrival and shortly after many times. This is just one I was able to find.

It is not that uncommon for individual units to give 2nd alarms and there is nothing preventing them from doing it. If the company officer sees the need for more resources, and the BC is not ?84 they?ll transmit it.

Recently in Brooklyn, individual companies gave the first 3 alarms all within 4 minutes of the 10-75.
