Effective Communication: 10 Codes/Hands Signals/Radio

I hear the talk now, and then about the 10-Code being done away with. Just say what needs to be said..short and to the point. Instead of 10-76...3 Engine enroute to..... Maybe if everyone knew the 10-Code in the area they worked in, this would help. A code could mean something else in another state. On the fire scene, radio and hand signals are used...radios do go dead; or get lost.What are the back-ups that can be employed and yet understood by all; or is this just wishful thinking?See More

Reading smoke

Posted on April 28, 2011 at 2:00pm 0 Comments

The type of smoke seen upon arrival is vital to the call, as is time of day, building type, etc. Is there a standard  approach to viewing smoke. (example)...heavy black smoke is...X   light grey smoke is...X. I know that this cannot be set in stone, however a general idea is a starting point.
