    Post Command/Accountability Board

    We are researching options for Command/Accountability Board that is used by the Battalion Chief on scene with multiple operating units (major incidents). If anyone would be willing to email one or two digital pictures of the board you are using - I would appreciate it much.

    Be safe..

    Don't have pics, but can briefly describe our system and the equipment.

    All firefighters in our mutual aid association have a small 1/2" x 2 1/2" plastic name tag which is backed with velcro. The tag shows name and department. Generally we stick them to the velcro on the collar wrap of the turnout coat.

    Each truck has a placard, about 3" x 5", with the department name and truck name across the top. A velcro strip down the middle accepts name tags, and the placard itself is attached to the dashboard with velcro. When responding, crew members on the truck put their tags on this board, and then hand the board over to the accountability officer on scene, or staging officer at major incidents.

    Each department then has at least one full size zone board (sometimes more), about 9" x 11", with three velcro strips down the front. The strips can be divided into sectors, such as staging, hot zone, interior, etc, and name tags placed accordingly. Name tags can then be removed from the truck placards and placed on the zone board as needed.

    In the past I have also served with departments that utilized plastic clip-on tags attached to the rear of helmets, which worked well.

    Not sure if that is what you were looking for.... hope it helps.

    Clemens Incident Management System's command board is in use with a LOT of FD's across the country...they subscribe to the KISS method...works well with chief officers and for use by line officers
    managing an incident 'till the boss shows up.

    For accountability tracking, PAS Binder works well for large incidents...http://www.fire-rescueoutfitters.com...bility/pas.htm

    Just my 2 cents..hope it helps. Stay Safe...
