Whether you are a Fire House, Local Police Station, EMS Crew, or Local Government office communication with your personnel is vital. Anyone who has made initial entry into a raging residential structure fire with a hoseline can attest. As can the Truck Company Crew conducting a dangerous primary search in an involved multi-family apartment complex. Or the seasoned paramedic working a cardiac arrest in the back of an ambulance racing emergently to a nearby hospital. These are the tactical moments where a breakdown in communication can be costly in terms of safety, time, and benchmarks.
