    Thumbs up SOP's for Truck Companies with Pump/Tank

    Looking for comments and SOP's from Fire Departments that are currently using truck companies with pump/tank/hose capabilities. Not interested in quint concept. Procedures in arriving first, who completes truck work?,when to lay hose lines, etc.

    While my station does operate any type of aerial device, we do have a mutual aid dept that operates a 105' w/ pump.

    When they first placed it in service, this was a major concern. Do they perform truck or engine co op's. There are a few areas that their ladder truck could be the first unit on scene and it was address quickly by the following;


    1. There is an immediate life/ rescue situation that would require them to perform suppression activities.

    2. The first in engine is delayed for whatever reason.

    Within a week of this SOP, there was an incident where the ladder was first on scene of a working fire, w/o civilian life/ safety concerns, the ladder started their ops and the engine arrived 1 minute later and they started suppression activities and the entire operation was TEXTBOOK.
