    Default Size-up SOP/SOG's ??

    My Dept is wanting to have some type of SOP/SOG in place regarding what to include in a size-up for some of our newer company officers and other serving in this capacity as Acting Officers to give them, and everyone for that matter, a base size-up. I was asked to look into any other Dept's that may have them in place.

    If your Dept has such a SOG/SOP in place, please let me know. Thank you.

    I sort of accidentally created one the other day while putting together a training class on radio protocols...

    ACME

    A = Arrival on scene
    C = Conditions found
    M = Mode of operation (offensive, defensive, investigating, etc.)
    E = Establish command

    Not too detailed, easy to remember....We'll be trying it for a while, see if we need to add anything to it....

    "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream and I hope you don't find this too crazy is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

    1.) who I am "Engine 24 to Dispatch"
    2.) what I see "on scene, 2 story residental, light grey smoke from roof"
    3.) what you are doing "going offensive attack"
    4.) What command mode "with a fast attack"
    5.) What I need "give me a second alarm"

    That is what we teach and have in SOG's

    I came up with this as a down and dirty size up a few years ago, as it was a lot easier than trying to remember COAL WAS WEALTH or WALLACE WAS HOT.

    The "L" is for the location of the fire in the building, not the address!
