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.Greg Loveall, FF/PM

- Not the end of the earth but I can see it from here...
I sort of accidentally created one the other day while putting together a training class on radio protocols...
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....Chief Dwayne LeBlanc

"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

Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
