The purpose of this book is to establish foundational operating norms so that all combat personnel, at all levels, will be better equipped to perform well because they have a good understanding of how incidents will be mitigated and managed. It is further intended to promote safer operations by eliminating oversights that can occur because of a “figure it out when we get there” mentality. This document is not designed to be a tool to criticize an Officer, it is intended as a quality improvement tool. By breaking down the tasks that must be accomplished at fires in certain types of buildings, and then preplanning assignments of the first arriving companies, we can also create a more organized and effective rescue initiative and fire attack.
