1 Apparatus Assignments Presentation January 24, 2011

2 BETHANY BEACH VOLUNTEER FIRE COMPANY Apparatus Assignments Purpose: The Bethany Beach Fire Company feels that predetermined apparatus and crew assignments are essential for efficient fire ground operations and has put together this presentation to insure that it happens. Scope: This standard regulates the placement and positioning of emergency vehicles and their initial crew responsibilities at structure fires.

3 Expectations Staffing on all apparatus is at least three, including two SCBA- certified personnel Personnel will be able to complete standard firefighting tasks Apparatus arrival times may be dynamic, and arrival order may be unpredictable Primary and/or secondary hydrants may be unavailable, and alternate means for establishing water supplies may be required Mutual aid companies will be utilized on all confirmed building fires, and all mutual aid companies will be familiar with these standard operating guidelines If a responding company’s officer is unsure of their assignment, they shall request an assignment from the incident commander All personnel and companies will operate under The BBVFC incident command system. Resources for priority 1 structure fires: 4 engine companies, three special service companies, (at least two companies being an aerial ladder truck), one R.I.T. company at least one command officer, one advanced life support unit, and one basic life support unit, and one rehab unit. Additional alarms consist of the closest: Two engine companies, one special service, one R.I.T., and one basic life support ambulance.
