    Default ISO Grading Help

    We are getting resurveyed in April and I am wondering if anybody has any ideas on hose, Hydrant and training records. We have them but I would like a better format.

    Also any suggestions would help. Class 5 hoping for better.

    Thanks

    Spreadsheets are the easiest and most FF-proofed way of keeping records of hose and hydrant testing. Training records here are mostly kept by the state after being entered online which gives a lifetime total, but the local copy is a sign-in sheet kept in the filing cabinet.

    Hose marking is as simple as a set of stencils and a bunch of black spray paint. As long as there is a system to uniquely ID each hydrant, you don't have to make markings on them, but if you have some extra $$ for stickers or something along those lines, it makes it much easier. Houston glued ID numbers to every hydrant in the city. It takes a while to set up, but something like that is really easy to maintain.

    We kept indivivual training records on each firefighter ... drill attendance, outside training, specialized training such as driver/pump operator and aerial operations, and certifications, as well as a master list of all scheduled and outside training that we participated in for the past 3 years. That way if ISO had any questions about a particuliar session that each on a memebers indivivual sheet they could reference it. Maybe it's not the best system, but it worked at the time. Since then we have gone to a spread-sheet type report.
