In Fire and EMS news.....Very candid and open discussion with fire and EMS personnel today on implementing the SR-6 recommendations.

I think perhaps the most poignant comment made today was “ we are in crisis and without immediate action we will face the collapse of the system.”

The Veterans Affairs and Emergency Preparedness committee has drafted the bills to be sent to the legislature within the next few months.

Here is a great explanation of why structural fires require so many resources.Why do we have so many Fire Departments (7-8) responding on our First Alarm Structural Assignment?

Structure fires require that several critical tasks be performed either simultaneously or be highly coordinated. An example is advancing the attack line. It must be coordinated with ventilation.

Advancing it too soon will cause the fire to blow back at the attack crew. Advancing it too late allows the fire to gain oxygen and grow out of control. Another example is water supply. It must be established quickly enough after operating the attack line to keep the booster tank from going empty.

The number of firefighters, apparatus and response times needed for a first-alarm assignment to perform the required critical tasks is called an effective response force.

NFPA 1720 Standard for the Organization and Deployment of Fire Suppression Operations, Emergency Medical Operations and Special Operations to the Public by Volunteer Fire Departments recommends a minimum of (14) Firefighters to effectively perform these critical tasks, (15) if an aerial device is utilized. In addition to that personnel are needed to perform firefighter accountability and rehab maintaining a safe working environment.

Firefighting is extremely strenuous and quickly fatigues personnel. Ideally sufficient personnel should be available to rotate firefighters and this often requires additional companies beyond the initial alarm assignment.

In our response area every Fire Department is 100% Volunteer and staffing can vary significantly by the day of the week and hour of the day. After careful evaluation we have come to the conclusion that a minimum of 7-8 companies should be dispatched on the initial first alarm assignment to assure that the recommend minimum staffing requirements are met 24/7/365.
