    Default Assesment center audio

    Have been reading the posts on assesment centers for Lt/Capt. I was wondering if anyone knows where there is an audio of a good size-up to situation contanied. I think to hear one start to finish would be useful. Thanks

    Getting in a coaching session that's recorded with you in it for later review is even better yet. More here: http://www.eatstress.com/promo.htm

    I listened to Capt. Bob's CD and was able to use the information in it as a foundation for my Captain's oral, problem solving and size-up situation.

    I even listened to it 3 times enroute to a testing process.

    I am still working on it. It is quite a project. It's a work in process.

    Size Up Template
    1. Dispatch, Engine 1 is on scene at: ____________________.
    2. I have a working fire in a: __________________________.
    3. Engine 1 has laid a supply line from the hydrant at:
    ___________ and is pulling an 1 ¾ line for Primary Search
    and Fire Attack.
    4. Engine 1 will be Main Street Command, ICP will be:
    _______________.
    5. Strike me a second alarm and stage them:
    ________________.
    6. All incoming units be advised:
    ________________________.


    Fill in the blanks for your incident
    1. Dispatch, Engine 1 is on scene at: 123 Main Street.

    2. I have a working fire: on the first floor of a two story medium
    sized Victorian house.

    3. Engine 1 has laid a supply line from the hydrant at: Second
    and Main and is pulling an 1 ¾ line for Primary Search and
    Fire Attack.

    4. Engine 1 will be Main Street Command; ICP will be: in the
    cab of Engine 1.

    5. Strike me a second alarm and stage them: one block south of
    the incident.

    6. All incoming units be advised: I expect a rescue problem.
    Step 1 (Address)

    Dispatch, Engine 1 is on scene at: _________________
    Possible addresses: 123 Main, the corner of First and Main,
    southbound 710 freeway north of Pacific Coast highway, the
    McDonalds on the corner of Magnolia and third……

    Step 2 (description)
    I have a working fire: _________________________.
    (Working fire is very descriptive and negates the need to try to
    describe color of smoke or amount of flame.)
    I have a working fire: on the second floor of a two-story center
    hallway apartment building, in the rear of a single story single
    family residence, on the rear trailer of a tandem gasoline tanker, in
    a detached garage…….

    Step 3 (what you are doing)
    Engine 1 has laid a supply line from the hydrant at: ___________
    and is pulling an 1 ¾ line for Primary Search and Fire Attack.
    Laying a supply line ensures adequate initial water supply. It also
    ensures that you will not forget it. (Additional supply lines may be
    needed as the incident progresses.)
    Pulling a 1 ¾ line for Primary Search and Fire Attack reinforces
    the number one objective – Rescue.
    Engine 1 is: in the investigation mode, fast attack mode, pulling a 2
    ½ inch line, pulling a line to cool the exposure…….

    Step #4 (Assuming Command)
    Engine 1 will be Main Street Command, ICP will be:
    The first arriving officer is expected to assume command unless
    there is an imminent rescue problem (eliminates the need for RIC),
    or when the Officer’s immediate involvement will have a direct
    impact on the success of the incident.
    Some policies state that the first engine will pass command to the
    second arriving company. (Know your department’s policy)

    Step 5 (Ordering resources)
    Strike me a second alarm and stage them:
    Ordering the appropriate resources early is the key to a successful
    incident. You do not need to order complete alarms. An additional
    Engine or Truck may be appropriate.

    Step 6 (Overhead Broadcast)
    All incoming units be advised:
