37 C.A.N. REPORTS Purpose: To establish a uniform radio report so companies transmit a clear, concise, and informative radio transmission to other companies and Incident Commanders(IC). Definition: Conditions, Actions, Needs (C.A.N.) Report- this model easily identifies to the person giving the report and Incident commanders how well they are doing, the conditions they are facing, and any support or resource needed. Conditions Conditions – denotes what you are seeing at your present location or assignment. It is not meant to be a long drawn out description but a short and to the point picture of your current conditions. The conditions section of the report can also affirm to the Incident Commander your location. Actions Actions – tells companies and Incident Commanders the current actions being taken by you and your crew. This is meant to be a quick report of your actions. Examples of actions would be: completing primary search, attacking the fire on the second floor, opening up the fire area, and stretching a back-up line to the fire floor. Needs Needs – describes to the Incident Commanders and companies the requirements for you to complete your assigned tasks. Will you need extra companies? Are your current resources sufficient, will you require any additional tools or equipment. Example “Quint 70 to operations. We are on the second floor and have fire in the Alpha/Bravo corner. We are getting a line on the fire now and we need a truck company to open the ceiling for us.
