So this is a thread to talk about your area's public safety agency response protocols. This includes Fire department, EMS, and police, as well as multi-agency (tiered) response. We all know different jurisdictions have different protocols, so it's interesting to see what the different protocols are for your area.


To keep the thread clean, please use the following format

London, Ontario

 


For motor vehicle collisions involving 1-3 vehicles, my city uses a fully tiered response. They send one engine, at least one EMS unit (depending on injuries), and minimum of 1 police cruiser.


For monitored fire alarm (residential/house) usually sent is 3 engines, 1 truck (ladder), and one car (district chief or platoon chief).

For monitored fire alarm (highrise), usually sent is 4 engines, 2 trucks, 1 rescue, and one car.

For structure fires (residential) its the same response level as a monitored fire alarm (residential)

For structure fires (highrise) its the same response level as a monitored fire alarm (highrise)

For Hazmat level 1, usually sent is 1 engine, and one car. (this can be something as simple as a fuel spill.

For Hazmat level 2, usually sent is 1 Engine, 1 HAZMAT truck, 1 Rescue, and One car (can be a natual gas leak, or any other gas leak).

For Hazmat level 3, usually sent is 2 engines, 1 Hazmat truck, 1 Decon trailer, 1 rescue, and one car. (This is for serious calls like chemical spill, industrial accient, or motor vehicle collision involving a vehicle carrying chemicals).

For marine rescue, usually sent is 1 engine, 1 car, 1 rescue, 1 marine unit, 1 Zodiac unit.
