Dashboard for Incident Commanders

I'm designing a dashboard for Incident Commanders to use for enhanced situational awareness during emergencies.

Fire officers arrive as soon as they can and use standard operating procedures to effectively manage the incident scene, save lives and extinguish the fire.

From my…

FOOD FOR YOUR HEAD

THE FIREMEN I NEVER KNEW

I read the article posted by a retired Fire Captain and was truly upset and found it difficult to believe. Read this stuff and be honest, have you ever felt this way about what we have done as Firefighters? Have you ever become dependent on any stress relief systems that may have resulted in an unwanted behavior?…

THE GREAT DESTROYER.... LAWS THAT DO NOT APPLY TO EVERY CITIZEN EQUALLY

There are many ways to lose your life, property and future. So many ways are provided to anyone who can pay to destroy their life. Drugs that were developed to perform miracles that would make a suffering human free of the burden of symptoms that are debilitating, are instead abused to relieve a symptom of having too much of everything, except the one thing needed for peace of…

How do you react fast to situations?

In my opinion shock from a life altering situation is the most immediate issue for casualties; in this case the most effective treatment is immediate action and medical care to resolve their issue. Each member at my station trains regularly and talks openly about… What would we do in a hypothetical situation?... How a call affected us as individuals and as a team? and/or… How would we do better…

A HUMAN BEING IS A TERRIBLE THING TO WASTE

People,

I visited a site that was reporting an assault on a Firefighter by a young boy. I was, as always, very concerned at the negative emotions all the grown ups were displaying toward the offending entity. The following link to a video will let the reader…

SAVE THE VICTIM...SAVE THE WORLD

People died recently in a motel fire and the issue became citing the motel builders for not having a sprinkler system installed. Now the "angels of mercy" have called for new rules to be enforced so no more people die from this believed preventable tragedy.

WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE

People,

I once had the opportunity to see a building slated for a controlled burn in my town. Actually it was right next door to my home so I had a front row seat.

It was decided by the volunteer fire department top officers to burn the whole thing as it stood. The building was an old creamery so it was very large and dry as…
