Hi there. I have a strange request, which I hope is not rude.
I work for a theater company that is doing a play about high-rise office building disasters, and we are getting a little stuck as we want to use the correct firefighting jargon and language in our script. I am hoping that you can help me answer the following questions:
1. When firefighters are going up the stairs in a tall building, what are the priorities of their mission? What do they literally say on their radios? (What is the specialized terminology and codes for their reports to command?)
2. How do different companies and individuals refer to or identify themselves when in this type of situation? I.e., do they use their names, or numbers, or something else? How do members of different firefighting companies communicate with each other?
3. What are the specific goals of entering a building? (rescue injured people vs. evacuate uninjured people vs. prevent damage, etc.)
4. What are firefighters trained to do when they encounter a victim or evacuating person who is panicking?
Thanks so much! I hope to hear from you.

May I suggest recruiting one of your local FFs, preferrably one who is TRT trained as a liason? I'd do it for free if I lived near you.
