If you played organized sports, you were assigned a position, and, a task with that position. If you didn't do it, you sat and the coach found someone that would. Why are more departments not creating riding assignments? It can be done from the largest to the smallest department. It creates accountibility, reduces duplication of effort, and gets the job done.

Does your department have a good foundation for its SOG/SOP's do they make sense? Do they build from simple to complex? Does the first alarm have pre-determinded assignments? What is your staffing like? Does the SOG properly address the fireground basics ? lets talk about these questions what can we do to fix or change broken SOG's or create ones where none have existed.
