2014 NFD Incident Command # 4 Deployment

  1. 1. N E W P O R T F I R E D E P A R T M E N T I N C I D E N T C O M M A N D T R A I N I N G DEPLOYMENT 4th Function of Command Division of Training April 2016
  2. 2. OBJECTIVES  Identify the basic concept of incident-deployment management.  Explain the dispatch/communication process  Describe how an Incident commander determines incident resource needs.  Demonstrate Level I & Level II staging  Demonstrate incident accountability and incident evolution.
  3. 3. COMPETENCIES  Predict resources based on the event profile.  Maintain awareness of local / area response capabilities.  Staging  Maintain resource inventory and reserve worksheet
  4. 4. OVERVIEW Deployment is where we mobilize and begin to physically address the incident problem. The IC does the other seven functions of command in order to manage deployment
  5. 5.  Predict resources based on the most rapid, accurate, current, and forecasted event profile you can develop based on the tactical objectives. The deployment process begins with the initial call for help. Responders. In a very practical way, dispatch and responders basically share command. Resources
  6. 6. IC must compare the event profile and the response profile to call for the additional resources required. Event profile • What type of problem is it? • How big is it now/how big do you think it will get? • How long has it been going on/how long do you think it will go on? Response profile • What resources are on scene? • When will the responding resources arrive on scene? • What additional resources are required? Event Profile
  7. 7.  Maintain awareness of local / area response capabilities. IC have a good grasp of the available area personnel, equipment, apparatus and the systems used to activate and manage those resources. The IC must also be familiar with how long it takes to get them to the scene. Additionally, responding company and command officers should advise when they will be delayed. Response Capabilities
  8. 8. STAGING  Use staging, assignment by the IC and accountability SOPs to get firefighters into the standard work cycle. Incident scene deployment begins with staging. Staging SOPs create a standard “entry gate.” Level I staging is automatically activated. Level II staging creates a huge command advantage.
  9. 9. Forward Staging • Relieve existing companies • Reinforce a current position • Cover a new position • Rescue On-Deck
  10. 10. STAGING • Provides division supervisors sufficient resources to get the job done. • Puts us int eh best postion to keep ahead of the incident • Places resources in the correct postion prior to need.
  11. 11. - The company officer shall report back when they arrive at their position - Crews in transit between staging and division or division to division should always notify command of their arrival. - Crews can report to division officers in established divisions. ASSIGNMENT POSITIONING
  12. 12. E1 E2 Example: E5
  13. 13. E1 E2 Example: E5 E4 On-Deck E3 On-Deck
  14. 14. WHEN MANPOWER ALLOWS - One crew inside working - One crew available for relief - One crew to step in to the relief position while the original crew is refilling their air - This becomes the basis for continuous rotation
  15. 15. The Command and Control cornerstone of everything we do. Manage Work Cycle Periodically Recycle or Rehab Assignment by the IC
  16. 16. DEPLOYMENT PRACTICES • Everyone that goes in – comes out • Must follow SOPs to get into the game • Have the right equipment/tools to enter the hazard zone • Attached to a Company to enter • Within voice, vision, or touch (use TIC) • Knows crew air consumption rates • Have an exit plan • Max depth into structure – 150 feet • Work time on air: 15 minutes
  17. 17. WORK-REST CYCLE • Interior work time – 15 minutes • May vary depending on crew fitness levels • Decision to leave the hazard area based on having reserve to exit safely RECYCLE • Not Rehab – going back to work • 2nd bottle?? • Assigned to your original division or group • Crew stays together and returns together • Check out/Check in with division/group supervisor when recycling
  18. 18. REHAB Crews may rotate in and out of the “hot zone” within the division itself to maximize manpower. Once a Company is assigned out of the division to Rehab Group they must be re-assigned out of Rehab by Command. IC may determine if Company “Recycling” or a formal “Rehab” is appropriate.
  19. 19. GOAL OF ACCOUNTABILITY • To enable us to track crew members at all times and to identify the location all units inside the hazard zone • To effectively track personnel, we require three things: 1. Hold company officers and/or team leaders accountable for the unity of their crew. 2. “Incident-specific” assignments given by a single IC (utilizing a tactical worksheet). 3. Require crews to inform Command when they have completed their assignments and are leaving a specific area to work another area.
  20. 20. STRATEGIC The IC starts the accountability process by first recording and then tracking the assignment status and location of resources. Accountability benchmarks - “PARs” PARs mean the crew is in the assigned location, doing ok and in contact with the IC or Division/Group
  21. 21. PERSONAL ACCOUNTABILITY REPORT Required for the following situations: • All clear • Knockdown • Change in strategy (Offensive to Defensive) • 20 minute elapsed time • Any report of a missing or trapped firefighter • Sudden hazardous event • Any time Command feels it is necessary
  22. 22. RESOURCE INVENTORY Maintain current, accurate, resource inventory; always maintain an appropriate resource reserve and tracking on a tactical worksheet. Control the position and function. Major tool = TWS (along with a radio). Tactical reserve
  23. 23. ACCOUNTABILITY • Should be able to answer three critical questions - Who’s on the fireground? - Where are they on the fireground? - What are the doing?
