I'm setting up training for our personnel to survey and prepare pre-plans for the public & commercial structures in our area that don't already have them. Does anyone have a relatively simple pre-plan survey form that works for them? I'm guessing there's some out there, and I'd just as soon not reinvent the wheel! We're assigning small teams of our personnel to do these, so simpler is better!
I use excel and a fairly easy format PM me and I'll send it.
Is there a chance you could copy me in on that? I am looking at several options right now but i'd like to go with something simple.

The nice thing about it is it affords more flexibility for revisions and additions later down the road. All you have to do is double click on the drawing in the MS Word form and it automatically pulls it up in Firezone. Make the necessary changes and click save in FireZone and it saves it automatically makes the changes on the Main preplan form. Save that one and your'e done. The nice thing is, I have a majority of our preplans in this format which takes anywhere from 20min to an hour to create depending on the complexity of the structure. Once the preliminary plan is done, when I go back for a revisit/update I can complete these in as little as 5 min. E-mail me @ firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send you a copy of the form as well as a couple completed forms so you can see what we have.
I also have one that I use, from FDM. Email me and I will send it
hey can you guys send me the form you use on excel or word, i could really use them
I must agree...I am in charge of Pre-fire plans at our FD and we use FireZone as well. I started out using Fire Zone 4.0 but now use 8.0. Actually use 4.0 and then transfer to 8.0 b/c 4.0 is much more "USER FRIENDLY". ^^

Sorry to resurrect the thread, but is it possible to get copies of the pre-plan / inspection forms?
Also, anybody have the FD templates for Visio? Can't find them anymore... Thanks, Ben
