**RESPONSE POLICY (REVISION)**
Fire District Apparatus Response Policy
As the District strives to meet any and all NFPA, ISO, NIOSH and PESH mandates, we also understand the liabilities associated with emergency responses. After several table top discussions with our district officers and some additional research conducted, a few revisions have been made to our apparatus response policies.
Fire Alarm Activations (Commercial, Residential, Multifamily)
After initial dispatch, should the 911 center receive a 2nd call reporting a "false" trip; 1st due apparatus will continue in emergency mode, while next due units will continue in "non-emergency", unless otherwise directed by a fire officer "on scene".
Natural Gas/LP Emergencies, CO incidents
1st Due units will approach from opposite ways, and stage at least 1 structure or to next closest intersection on both ends of scene. First due firefighters will still start monitoring at the respective truck to determine the presence or lack of gas. Firefighters will now approach the "structure in question" on the same side of street. Standard district SCBA policy applies, all FF who enter building/house/garage will continue to don and use SCBA until the level of gas has been determined. Apparatus shall respond in emergency mode until gas levels have been detected and discussed with OIC.
1st Due units, including POV's shall respond in an non emergency mode; with the exception of cardiac, respiratory arrests, and unconscious patients. Response may be altered by a fire officer/EMT "on scene" whereas patient assessment has been conducted.
Policy changes are now on file with the fire district SOP's in the District Chiefs Office.
