  1. Module 3:COMMUNICATIONS

  2. List four benefits of effective fireground communications and explain the importance of each. UNDERSTANDING FIREGROUND COMMUNICATIONS THE NEED FOR EFFECTIVE FIREGROUND COMMUNICATIONS OBJECTIVES Module 3 Overview

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

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

  5. Understanding Fireground Communications • Insert photo of radio

  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. Photo of radio

  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 Lombardi

  30. TACTICAL COMMUNICATIONS RESPONSIBILITIES

  31. When communication breaks down on the fireground so does: • Coordination • Control • The ability to provide for firefighter safety

  32. All personnel have the responsibility to communicate effectively • Starts with a good brief initial report by the first-in officer. • Continues throughout the incident.

  33. Types of Tactical Communications • Initial conditions reports • Implementation orders • Progress 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 COs“Report 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 COs“Report 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. Reports of safety hazards or evacuation orders“Emergency Traffic” • All personnel have the responsibility. • A method to quickly convey emergency information should be established. • Accounts for all personnel when the structure has been evacuated.
