This is more of a poll question that I would really like a lot of input on.
How are you assigned?
Do you run separate engine, truck and rescue companies?
Do you run with predetermined assignments based on your arrival order?
Are your people assigned tasks by seating?
Or, do you arrive and wait for an assignment from the IC?
These questions came up in a recent conversation with several people on multiple occasions. I am really interested to know how the rest of the country is doing “it” and what trends are being followed.
This is especially interesting with the unfortunate budget cuts and reductions in staffing in some jurisdictions.
Let us know what is going on out there, we really look forward to your feedback.
