Fire Suppression

Strategy and tactics are performed under the Incident Command System. Incident Command is set up by the Fire Commander.  The Lieutenants have the role of Company Officer and Fire Specialists are utilized to perform tactics in fulfilling the Command’s overall strategy of conquering the fire or rescue incident. Our Tactical Worksheet provides an overall guideline to ensure all procedures are followed. Many hours of training are performed in Incident Command with our personnel and other agencies within the City.
