Drill of the Week: Extra Alarm Drill

By Forest Reeder

Size-up of incident factors identifies the amount of resources needed to safely and effectively manage the incident. A standard method of requesting additional resources to an incident should exist within your department. Using examples of your box alarm cards or mutual aid groups, review those procedures on how additional resources are requested and ultimately how they are managed at the incident.
