  • Dispatches are on Fire 1
  • In the event of a fire or response requiring an Incident Command, Fire 2 is used for the Tac channel and Fire 3 is used for the Command channel.
  • If there are no active incidents, Fire 2 may be used for communication between units in the field.

Emergency Medical Services

Based on the level of the call (see below), a four-man engine and either a BLS or Rescue unit are dispatched.

Freeway Response

When a freeway response is dispatched, an engine and BLS or Rescue unit are dispatched to each side of the freeway as the exact location reported is not always correct.

For example, if a call comes in for the 405 northbound at Cherry, an engine and Rescue rig will be dispatched to the northbound 405. A second engine and a BLS unit will be dispatched to the same location coming southbound on the 405.

Fire response

For a report of an active fire, the standard response is a Battalion Chief, three engines, a truck, and a rescue unit. The first engine on scene begins an attack on the fire. The second engine mans a hydrant and begins pumping to the first engine. The personnel from the second engine begin a primary search of the building. The truck company will begin vertical ventilation on the roof. The third engine will request an assignment from either the captain of the first engine, or the battalion chief if he has arrived. The third engine is usually responsible for shutting off utilities to the structure if this has not been done yet.

Medical Response levels

LOB Fire uses a three stage system for identifying the response needed to calls with injuries or medical problems. The Captain of the Engine (or Truck if one is sent in place of an engine) can request upgrades or downgrades to the level of call once the patients have been assessed.

  • Alpha - no injuries, no patient transport required.
  • Bravo - minor or non-life threatening injuries that can be transported BLS.
  • Charlie - major or life-threatening injuries that require ALS transport.
