Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The National Fire Protection Association (NFPA), the International Association of Firefighters (IAFF) and the United States Fire Administration (USFA) have addressed the need for emergency incident rehabilitation in order to reduce firefighter illness and injuries. The problem was the City of New York Fire Department (FDNY) did not have a standard operating procedure for emergency incident rehabilitation. The research purpose was to develop a draft FDNY Standard Operating Procedure (SOP) for emergency incident rehabilitation. Action research was employed to answer the following questions: Why is there a need for emergency incident rehabilitation? What aspects of emergency incident rehabilitation currently used by other fire departments would be applicable to an SOP for FDNY? What independent actions do FDNY chief officers currently do at emergency incidents to try and rehabilitate personnel? The procedures included literature review, a review of emergency incident rehabilitation SOP's from other fire departments, and interviews with FDNY EMS chief officers. The results identified deficiencies in how rehab was being conducted at FDNY and provided information for developing a draft FDNY SOP for rehabilitation at emergency incidents. The draft SOP provided FDNY with guidelines for proper operation of a rehab sector. The main functions included rest, hydration, medical monitoring, active cooling and accountability. It was recommended to implement the new SOP prior to the next summer season in conjunction with station house training. A study should also be conducted to measure the effectiveness of the rehabilitation SOP in reducing fire ground injuries and/or cardiac incidents. Fire departments that currently have SOP's in place for emergency incident rehab should periodically update those policies as new research becomes available.

Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The Newton/Fire Department does not have a comprehensive training program to prepare a firefighter to become a successful future officer. The purpose of this research is to identify a process that will help improve the performance of future Newton Fire/EMS officers. The descriptive research method was used to answer the following questions: 1. What have other fire/EMS departments implemented to improve the development of their future officers? 2. Of those departments that have implemented training programs to improve officer development, what are the individual training components that have an objective focused on officer development? 3. What components, unique to Newton Fire/EMS, are necessary to formulate a successful officer development program for future Newton Fire/EMS officers? 4. How should the revised Newton Fire/EMS officer-training program be created, utilized, and reviewed? The procedures included reviewing a sample of literature to identify what other fire departments have implemented to improve officer development. A survey was administered to identify existing officer-training programs within Kansas, what components are desired in an officer-training program, and to identify components that may be unique. The results of the research supported the perception that Newton Fire/EMS was not adequately preparing its personnel to become officers. The results also identified minimum national standards to guide officer development, which are used by a host of individual departments. Also identified were components essential to an officer-training program. The recommendations include informing personnel of Newton Fire/EMS of the research findings, motivating the department to change, and creating a future vision. A working group will be formed to guide the design, implementation and review of the revised program. Extensive involvement of the Newton Fire/EMS Chief and administrative personnel is needed in the update of the Kansas Fire Officer I curriculum, coordinated by the Kansas Fire and Rescue Training Institute, emphasizing leadership skills.

Third party billing for fire and EMS response

Author(s):Gleason, Douglas R. ; Zachary. Fire Department.
Description: 13 p.
Publication Data:Emmitsburg, MD : National Fire Academy. 1990
Identifier/s:Accession No.: 58644/ OCLC Record No.: 502524607
Type of Item: (EFO PAPER) EFO PAPER
Subjects:1. ALTERNATIVE FUNDING 2. FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT
Series Data:Executive Fire Officer Program. Applied Research Project
Summary/abstract:
  • The purpose of this applied research project was to ascertain whether or not Third Party Billing was a cost effective means of generating alternative revenue. This revenue would be for the purpose of establishing a capital out lay account specifically for vehicle replacement. It was obvious to me that this project was one of monumental importance to the fire service since so very little information existed on the topic. Information was gathered by a series of interviews conducted with executives of fire and emergency medical departments. This information was studied by my Deputy Chief, EMS Chief and myself. After the study period we met and discussed our findings. The findings of each individual were very similar in that Third Party Billing seemed to work for emergency medical calls but not for fire calls. The basic reason being the wording of the insurance policies that cover the two different types of emergencies. It was not recommended to Mayor and Council that Third Party Billing be implemented because the research did not reveal any economic gain with our present population and call volume.
