Considerations for the QUINT Company Officer


There has been a lot written, taught, debated and lectured on in regards to fire apparatus that fall under the definition of a quint.  If you look it up, there are several definitions of what a quint is and should be to be considered so, but it boils down to a very simple description.  The technical idea of a quint is that it must do five things, however, if you look at NFPA 1901, it lists well more than five functions.

My idea of a quint is more simplistic…

We still use the written log book system know as the Journal or "The Book". The house watchman is responsible for keepng the book updated at all times throughout the day and night. Typical entries include responses out of and returning to quaters, daily drill activities, incoming personell, visitors entering quaters, cheifs entering quaters, and unusual occurences to name a few. Our responses are also entered into the NYFIRS computer system upon returning to quaters by the officer on duty. Our hosewatch is manned 24 hours a day at 3 hour intervals.
