    Post School Building plans

    Gentlemen...give me some pointers on general SOPs for school buildings? Anyone have any ideas? And more specifically....For regular residential house fires, I consider 4 command officers perfect, them being a ladder ops officer, an engine ops officer, and exterior officer, and an IC to oversee ops. How many command officers would you need for to oversee ops for a school building?

    Is school in session? If it is and you actually have a working fire you need one to deal with school officials. IC is not going to have time to handle this duty or the others for that matter.

    Good luck, school officials are usually real fun to deal with... they don't think the way fire fighters do. (usually, not to group all of them together...)

    So perhaps establishing a liason from command to the school officials would be in the best interests?

    The only advice I could offer form experiance is to not to have one of the student muster points at where the first due assignment is "most likely" to arrive. Also, limit it to 1 school official as a liason, but a couple of building engineers can be of great assistance.

    They aren't paid to.
