The following format will be followed in order when dispatching all incidents that require a one alarm response. The Fire Dispatcher will provide the following via Zetron and Main Dispatch:
a. Incident Type b. Incident address c. Fire ground d. Responding Units e. Example: “Units respond to a one alarm fire, at 1234 Main Street, on fire ground command B-2. Engine 3, Engine 5, Truck 3 and District 1 respond to a one alarm fire, at 1234 Main Street, on Fire ground Command B-2. f. The dispatcher will announce the rundown of the units responding one time only. However the incident address and fire ground will be repeated.
Fire units responding to an incident requiring a one alarm response will give all initial reports on the fire ground, not on Main Dispatch.
Example: First Unit on scene: “Engine 2 reporting a working fire 2nd floor, C- side of a 3 story multi-dwelling” This report will be given on the fire ground talk group not on Main Dispatch.
A fire dispatcher will be assigned to all structure fires. This dispatcher will monitor the incident and communicate with the incident commander on the fire ground. For incidents requiring a one alarm response all incident communication, excluding the initial dispatch, will occur on the fire ground. The fire dispatcher will remain assigned to the incident, monitoring the fire ground, until the incident has concluded or until released by the incident commander.
