Pre-Fire Planning: Does it Meet Current Needs for Efficient and Effective Fire Ground Operations for the City of Two Rivers Fire Department   [open pdf - 132KB]

"It is the primary mission of the Two Rivers Fire Department to protect the lives and property of the people in the community from the adverse effects of fires, medical emergencies and the like. This is accomplished by delivering services in an effective and efficient manner. One of the challenges faced is meeting the needs of the community to keep pace with the ever-changing political and economic climate. The problem was that the fire pre-planning program was a low priority that remained static and didn't evolve as an effective tool for fire ground operations. The purpose of the research project was to identify if the current pre-fire planning system was providing accurate information for fire ground operations and, if not, to suggest modifications to more adequately meet the current needs and resources. A descriptive research method was used to answer the following questions: 1. What is pre-fire planning? 2. What are the objectives of pre-fire planning? 3. What information should be included in pre-fire plans? 4. How do fire pre-plans impact fire ground operations? 5. How often should fire pre-plans be updated?"
