2.1 A FSG call is a call received into control where the caller believes that they are unable to leave their premises due to the effects of fire,
and where the control officer remains on the line providing appropriate advice

10

2.3 Responsibility rests with control to determine that FSG is taking place and not the fireground.

escape,
assess,
protect
rescue

The completed form must be passed to the IC on arrival and a copy retained at the ICP. The IC should inform control that they have received the FSG information.

13

5.12 ICs should consider the early allocation of a dedicated hand-held radio channel

(e.g. channel 3) for passing information about FSG calls on the incident ground.

14

9.4 Recorded communication methods between control and the Incident ground are as follows:

• Appropriate main scheme Firelink radio channel.
• If control has resources then M2FH FLON-OPS-01 could be used to free up the main scheme if there are a large number of FSG calls.
• Brigade mobile phone.
• Fixed phones on CU.
• CSS conferencing facility.
• Command unit critical phone line – only for life critical information.
CU FAX

15

• In exceptional circumstances an IC may consider informing control that their advice to FSG callers be altered e.g

to attempt to leave their property rather than stay put. The IC should remember that this advice may be contrary to National Policy for control staff on FSG calls and liaison with the officer in charge at control will be required for agreement to change the current advice being given.

16

• Appoint a dedicated officer (minimum role SM) ASAP

to collate, record and retain all the information on FSG calls received and the subsequent actions on the incident ground.

listening watch on the appliance radio.

• condition of their location e.g. heavy smoke, slight smoke;
• proximity to fire if known;

21

5.13 If control has sufficient resources then

M2FH FLON-OPS-01 could be used to free up the main scheme Firelink radio if there are a large number of FSG calls. This may be for use by that incident alone or exclusively for FSG information however the IC must be aware that in the latter circumstance only those resources monitoring that channel will hear any FSG information.

6.1 Any number of FSG calls to any building type will attract an enhanced attendance that will include an exclusive collection of resources. Part of the attendance is the equivalent of a ‘persons reported’ attendance i.e., one Command Unit (CU), one Station Manager (SM) and an FIU, and the remainder will be the exclusive element which will include an additional

CU (for FSGC), an additional SM (for FSGS) and a Pump Ladder with watch manager in charge (for FSGP).
