RADIO Readiness:

RADIO Readiness Always know who you should be reporting to. What Division, Group, Sector are you assigned to? A common error on today’s fire ground is the transmitting of necessary information to the wrong place, requiring it to be repeated or redirected. Make sure that the message is received by the correct officer. Our channels are normally swamped with information, especially early in an emergency, unnecessary radio communication resulting from unawareness of your radio transmission assignment is undisciplined and avoidable.

Tactical Radio Communications:

Tactical Radio Communications To avoid confusion during normal radio and emergency radio communications. B,C, and D can sound alike on the radio Firefighters should always use phonetic titles (“3710 Alpha to 3710 Delta ”) for example To improve accountability for all firefighters and Incident Commander. To clarify the strategic and tactical goals, objectives, and safety of all fireground operations.

Riding Positions and Radio Designations:

Riding Positions and Radio Designations Officer Position – “A” Alpha Firefighter Position # 1 – “B” Bravo Driver Position – “D” Delta D also for Driver Firefighter Position # 2 – “C” Charlie (If Occupied) A B C D

Alternate Fireground Channels:

Alternate Fireground Channels I.C. may assign multiple fireground tactical channels during one incident. All personnel should be prepared to locate and switch to any assigned channel as designated by the I.C. Switching channels should be practiced by all. Should be known by all on the fireground. Used to help manage emergency communications during an incident. During a “Mayday” all ongoing fireground operations are to switch to this channel to allow more direct and clear communications between the firefighter declaring the Mayday and the Incident Commander and / or the RIT Team.

For this class our Alternate Fireground Channel is::

For this class our Alternate Fireground Channel is: ZONE C, Command B (Channel 15) If ordered to switch to the Alternate Command Channel, in Zone C, you should simply rotate your Channel Selection Knob all the way clockwise, and then ONE CLICK BACK. This will have you on the proper channel. Make sure your radio is NOT in the SCAN mode after you make this switch.
