    Default Does your FD have pre-determined incident safety officers?

    First, does your department assign incident safety officers (ISO) at working incidents (structure fires, rescue scenes, etc.)? Are they automatically dispatched to the incident, or is that person usually pulled from a responding company, such as third captain of the third arriving engine?

    Do you have to hold any qualifications to be the department's ISO?

    Safety officers get same dispatch as all ff's, but they don't respond to all calls. SO is their position, just like there are Captains, Lt's, engineers, etc. There are extra quals to be our SO....most importantly, FF1 and a Safety Officer class.
