Dispatchers response to a MAYDAY
Does anyone have an SOP for a dispatchers response to a mayday. As a full-time firefighter and part time dispatcher i see that there are dispatchers that have no experience in the fire field and may not know what to listen for or what to do in this situation. A majority probably never heard the acronym LUNAR, which is what information a firefighter is trained to give in a mayday situation.
