12-05-2000, 07:32 AM #1BJazz7Firehouse.com Guest
Hello to everyone. I am new to this forum, but have found lots of great stuff here. Here's the deal - I am researching pre-fire planning and how to streamline a system that would give you, in a matter of minutes, - floor layout, water main (sizes and pressures), stairwell, elevators, roof access and any hazardous waste or other exposures in the building. However, I need your help - you are the ones on the front lines and know the details that I need to make this program useful. Anyone who would be willing to give me information on how your department develops a pre-fire plan and what info you really use and how you gather that info, I would really appreciate it. Please e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a message here and I will contact you. Thanks in advance for all your help.

Get a main floor plan and start with that. For hydrants draw them on the map and color code them for pressure you can note sizes right beside the hydrant picture. Use poison stickers for Haz Mat and/or waste and write below it what is there. Note any propane sources and /or tanks these can be color coded also if you are doing this for your department if you use them same colors on all your pre-plans soon they will be common knowledge and stickers and our diagrams on one floor plan will give you a one view size up quickly. You can letter stairwells and assign divisions to the floor plan. I hope I have given you some ideas if you have any other questions feel free to e-mail me and ask I am more than willing to help you until you have a satisfactory plan.
