Canadian Brothers and Sisters:
This question is for career departments.
I would like to know what your First Alarm Assignment is for a reported structure fire in your city? What I am looking for is the total number of firefighters on the first alarm. It is important that your answer reflect the actual first alarm assignment and not subsequent requests for help.
I would also like to know what is your minimum daily manning to get a percentage of your on duty personnel that responds to the initial alarm.
Many thanks, here in Moncton we respond with 9 firefighters out of 21 on duty on the first report of a structure fire. This info is for a project i'm doing re NFPA 1710. Thanks again.
