  1. Establishing Command

    Slide 1 - Establishing Command

    • MFD IRR Model
    • MFD SOG ICS
    • Section 2 Chapter 14
    • page 2-14-1
  2. Command Presence

    Slide 2 - Command Presence

    • “Command presence is when you have the ability to step in front of a group of individuals and they instantly know that you are in charge. On the emergency scene, it’s your ability to exhibit self control while in the midst of total chaos. You could call it chaos control. In the non-emergency environment, such as at the fire station, it’s when you present yourself as someone in authority, who is trusted and respected.”
    • The Company Officerby Billy Schmidt
    • FireRescue.com
  3. Establishing Command

    Slide 3 - Establishing Command

    • Properly establishing command creates a strong command presence.
    • The 1st step in establishing a strong command presence is developing and announcing an initial radio report.
    • The Bluecard Incident Command template provides an easy to follow guide that, when followed, aids in formulating a strong and thorough IRR.
    • And so
    • MFD training division has developed this overview so that company officers and their crews may practice the MFD IRR sequence as outlined within MFD SOG’s.
  4. Key Points

    Slide 4 - Key Points

    • The IRR is given upon arrival as you are driving up to the scene - before exiting the vehicle.
    • It is based on what is first observed and the critical factors that are presented by the scene.
    • It is not an indictment of absolute accuracy, follow up reports and adjustments can and should be made by the company officer as he deems necessary.
    • It is different, it does take practice, But it provides consistency and streamlines the process of strategic formulation and tactical assignments.
  5. The Blue Card IRR Order Model

    Slide 5 - The Blue Card IRR Order Model

    • As per MFD SOG ICS Section 2 Ch. 14 page 2-14-1
    • Building Description
    • Size – sm, med, lg – based on % of coverage with a 200ft pre-connect.
    • Height – Number of stories. If numerous use “multi-story” or “high rise”
    • Occupancy
    • Single family residence, apartment building or complex, strip mall, commercial (be specific).
    • Problem Description
    • MFD accepted descriptions
    • Nothing showing
    • Light smoke showing
    • Working fire
    • Defensive fire conditions
    • Special hazards
    • Problem Location
    • Side – Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta
    • Floor – 1st, 2nd, 3rd, etc.
  6. The Blue Card IRR Order Model

    Slide 6 - The Blue Card IRR Order Model

    • As per MFD SOG ICS Section 2 Ch. 14 page 2-14-1
    • Initial Incident Action Plan (IAP)
    • Announce your crew’s assignment and where?
    • Task –”Take a pre-connect off of Eng1”*
    • Location – “Make entry through Alpha”*
    • Objective – “For fire control”*
    • *this is only an example of an initial assignment. The incidents critical factors determine what initial assignments the first arriving IC will make.
    • Declare Incident Strategy
    • Offensive or Defensive
    • Consider additional resources
    • 2nd alarm?
    • Tanker
    • Assume and Name Command
  7. Assigning Units

    Slide 7 - Assigning Units

    • The IRR is the scope for this particular presentation and practice, however, keep in mind that assignments must be made as units level 1 stage.
    • These assignments are delegated based on the incident priorities as defined by the incident critical factors.
    • The old standby R-E-C-E-O-V-S or the newly introduced S-L-I-C-E-R-S provide good guidelines of fire ground objectives that need to be addressed.
    • When making assignments make sure to include task, location, objective.
  8. Fire Ground Objectives

    Slide 8 - Fire Ground Objectives

    • R-E-C-E-O-V-S
    • R- Rescue
    • E – Exposure
    • C – Confinement
    • E – Extinguishment
    • O – Overhaul
    • V – Ventilation
    • S – Salvage
    • S-L-I-C-E-R-S
    • S – Size up
    • L – Locate fire
    • I – Identify and control flow path
    • C – Cool from safest location
    • E – Extinguish
    • R – Rescue
    • S - Salvage
  9. Practice Scenarios

    Slide 9 - Practice Scenarios

    • The following slides include pictures of structure fires. Using the MFD initial radio report format formulate your IRR.
    • Tactical assignments should be made based on your normal assigned resources which should be at least your Engine crew and your EMS crew, some stations will have this and a squad as well.
    • The picture will appear, you will have 30 seconds to announce your IRR, after 30 seconds a sample IRR will appear. If you need more time pause the video and restart when you have developed your IRR.
    • Eng6, EMS 6 and Squad 6 will be used for the sample IRR’s.

  20. Practice – Practice – Practice

    Slide 20 - Practice – Practice – Practice

    • MFD has adopted Blue Card IC Certification as the standard for establishing command on Type IV and V incidents.
    • By following an established IRR model everyone is on the same page as to what is going on and what actions are taking place during an emergency.
    • The IRR is the first step to creating a strong and confident command presence, it sets the stage as to how the incident will be run and how quickly the emergency will be mitigated.
    • It takes practice to get the rhythm of the IRR so that it flows smoothly….a lot of practice.
  21. Parting Thoughts

    Slide 21 - Parting Thoughts

    • Practice, practice, practice
    • We did not cover 360’s. Upon exiting your apparatus and while your crew is setting up, get a 360 of the incident (or as many sides as possible).
    • Upon completion announcement of “360 complete” must be made along with any changes to the initial IAP or strategy.
    • If you have trained your crew well, then you should have complete confidence in their ability to follow your orders and complete their objectives while you take care of IC stuff.
    • Captains and Acting Captains remember, your crews depend on you to provide the proper direction that will allow them to be effective fire fighters at the same time their families count on you to make sure everyone goes home.
