Fireground Management

Webcast: Command, Control, and Accountability

Department-level expectations, incident scene control mechanisms, and additional alarm guidelines will be discussed in this no-holds barred discussion on fireground control and accountability.  The Company Accountability Model will be presented to ensure Company and Battalion level integrity and accountability are maintained.  Further, decentralization of the fireground to decrease span of control and maximize information gathering which allows an addressing of strategies, accountability and safety will be included.  This webcast will help us meet our highest priority: Get ‘em in safe, work ‘em safe, and get ‘em out safe.
