    "I have a dream. It's not a big dream, it's just a little dream. My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

          OK, OK, I was just busting your chops a bit....Now that I'm through being a smart*****, maybe I can offer some actual advice...

          First, your question is very vague.....The title of your thread is "Fire Alarm Response"....are you inquiring about response to fire alarms specifically (automatic alarm investigation) or just responding to fires in general?

          If you are asking about responding to actual fires, what kind of fire are you talking about? Response guidelines vary a great deal depending on the type of emergency. Structure fire, car fire, wildland fire, residential vs. commercial vs. industrial....in most areas the type and number of apparatus and personnel sent will vary with the situation.

          Is it a paid or volunteer department? This will also determine response protocols. A paid department, with a known number of personnel on duty 24/7, will have somewhat different procedures than an on-call volunteer department where the number of personnel available is not always known and mutual aid agreements may figure into the formula.

          Let's assume for the moment you are talking about structure fires. In my department (rural, all volunteer), our average structure fire is a single-family residential. Our standard response for this incident would be two engines and a service truck. Personnel would be whoever shows up. Many departments would also roll a ladder truck on this type of incident, but we don't have one. Depending on the size/complexity of the incident, time of day, and other factors, we also have the option to call mutual aid from neighboring departments.

          Simply put, there are probably as many different ways of responding as there are fire departments out there. This is just an example of how one rural volunteer department does it.

          Are you looking for more details as to what actually happens on the fireground? Clarify a bit what information you need, I'd be happy to elaborate...

                        I was down in southern miami county and could see some of the smoke. It was just a wild guess. Shot in the dark.
