  • Investigator Call Sign

    This was a thread that I originally started in the Firefighters Forum but it is probably better suited here.

    Well after much debate and discussion we are finally changing the way that our Investigations Task Force operates. Our Task Force is made up of members of several different departments which in the past has lead to some confusion on the fire ground since you could have an Investigator using his call sign from his home department when he goes out to investigate an incident that may be on the other side of the county quite aways away from his or any neighboring jurisdictions. This lead to some confusion for the dispatchers (especially at shift change if information wasn't passed along) and in some incidents lead them to believe that an apparatus responded from the Investigators jurisdiction and not just the individual. Confused yet? Well that's what we want to change. We have been approved to provide the Task Force with their own unique radio identifier. The way it works in our area is each agency has a unique radio number. So say for example X department is 12 so their radio call signs would be 12 engine 1, 12 command 1, etc and Y department would be the same only their number is 6 so they are 6 engine 1 and 6 command 1, etc. Well now this Task Force will be 25 but we aren't sure what to fill the gap with. Had tossed around 25 Sam 1, 25 IDA 1, 25 Mary David 1 and some others.

    So the question are:

    What is your department doing for radio call signs?

    What call signs are you using for investigators? (if any)

    What would you suggest to use?

    Our investigators use the County Name and their number....County 5, County 6, etc. If your a county group, perhaps you would be 25 County 1, 25 County 2.

      Fire Ground ID

      Since our Department is bordered by to another county, a better way to ID would be to use the Department Name /Investigator number. Fortunately there has not been any incidents that have required us to go out of our County, but since everybody has ther own way of IDing. Plain english is the best way.

        I probably wasn't clear here. 25 County Name 1. That way, no matter where you went, they would know you were with the county. For example, Catlin is in Vermillion County, I believe. This would make them 25 Vermillion 1; 25 Vermillion 2, etc.

                  I didn't realize that there was an Investigators Forum and I thought that since this was about Investigators I would get better feed back here than in the firefighters forums. Its kind of like going to Pierce and asking them to explain how a SCBA works. Same job, just better to go straight to the source. At least that's my thought.
