What tactical decisions do you make at a wildland fire? Where do these decisions come from? In four different fire scenarios Fire Captain Kevin Kinney illustrates how your Incident Response Pocket Guide (IRPG) leads you through the engagement process of determining the best method to attack wildland fires for the most safe and effective outcomes.
VHF COMMAND INTRODUCTION
The Incident Radio Communications Plan, or IRCP, provides the on scene commander with a new set of tools to more effectively manage the fireground. One of the latest enhancements of the IRCP is that Wildland Complans (WCPs) are now assigned within two minutes of initial dispatch. In addition, beginning June 1st, all WCPs Department-wide will have the assigned Command Frequency on VHF. Fire Captain Tim Bloom explains what you need to know about these new improvements.
