What will be the response and staffing in your area?

 

You have just clocked out and are on the way home when your department is alerted to a house fire.  Most of the members from your department are available so two engines can respond.  You arrive to see smoke showing and hear that two hoselines have been put to work.  You are also told that all the occupants were able to get out before your first engine arrived.

 

In your area, what staffing would you expect to have on hand?

 

What additional companies are responding to this fire?  Were they dispatched on the initial alarm or did they have to be requested?

 

What will be your size-up report?

 

What assignments will you give to the companies on the scene and those arriving later?

 

What benchmarks or objectives are you hoping to hear from the officers of the first two engines on the scene?
