Tactical Fire Problem – Your Fire Station!

This has happened many times throughout our country. What is your plan?

1.) If your members respond from home what have they been told to do when they respond to the station and see this?

2.) Do you have a detection and or suppression system in your building? What is the total value of all apparatus and equipment?

3.) If you are a career department, have you ever had an evacuation drill? What are your members supposed to do? Fight the fire or evacuate the apparatus?

4.) Do you have an automatic aid plan for another department to respond to your station? Have the mutual aid firefighters preplanned your station for utilities, shut offs etc.?

5.) DO SOMETHING!! After reading this post, have a discussion within your department and your mutual aid partners. Go t town hall or city hall and request sprinklers for your facility. Take an action!
