  • THE NEED FOR
  • EFFECTIVE
  • FIREGROUND

OBJECTIVES
Module 3 Overview
  • List the six steps
  • identified in the
  • communications model
  • and explain the
  • importance of each step.
  • THE
  • COMMUNICATIONS
  • MODEL

4
OBJECTIVES
Module 3 Overview
  • Apply the
  • communications model
  • to practical fireground
  • communications when
  • given a scenario.
  • APPLICATION OF
  • THE
  • COMMUNICATIONS
  • MODEL

6
Fireground Communications
  • More than just yelling orders
  • Involves several steps
  • Giving and receiving information
  • Information understood

7
THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE FIREGROUND COMMUNICATIONS
8
Improved Firefighter Safety
  • Ability to communicate essential information
    quickly.
  • Knowing where personnel are at all times.

9
Effective Resource Use
  • Manage action plan effectively.
  • Gather clear and concise information.
  • Flow of important information only

10
Improved Interagency Cooperation Through Good
Communication
  • Makes Department look good
  • Makes it easier for others to understand your
    needs.
  • Eliminates duplication of efforts.

11
Legal Implications
  • Many radio communications are taped.
  • Tapes may be entered as part of the evidence.
  • All Departments must follow FCC licensing
    requirements.

12
THE NEED FOR A COMMUNICATIONS MODEL
13
Communications is a major factor in how well
emergencies are managed
14
Departments need to train on improving fireground
communication procedures.

15
Departments Should Have Written Communication
Procedures
  • Basis for training.
  • Compatible with other agencies.
  • Members know what the communication rules are.
  • Used during post incident analysis.

16
Written Procedures Provide a Model
  • Assurance that all the important factors in
    effective communication are included.
  • Followed at all incidents
  • Perfect practice makes perfect Vince

TACTICAL COMMUNICATIONS RESPONSIBILITIES
31
When communication breaks down on the fireground

  • Continues throughout the incident.

33
Types of Tactical Communications
  • Initial conditions reports

  • Reports of Safety Hazards

34
Tactical Benchmarks
  • Completion of tactical operations
  • Completion of primary search
  • Stopping the forward progress of the fire
  • When further property loss is stopped

35
Progress Reports from CosReport on Conditions
  • The tactical operations are having a positive
    impact.
  • Tactical operations are not having a positive
    impact.
  • Additional resources that may be needed.

36
Progress Reports from CosReport on Conditions
  • Advanced warning to the supervisor as to when
    relief crews will be needed.
  • If and when resources might be available for
    release or reassignment.
  • Periodic reports on the status.

37

  • A method to quickly convey emergency information
    should be established.
  • Accounts for all personnel when the structure has
    been evacuated.

Summary
  • The steps of the communications model are
    encoding, transmission through a medium,
    receiving, decoding, and providing feedback.

64
Summary

    implementation orders for the action plan,
    progress reports, reports on safety hazards,
