Flashcards in Ch 11 Deck (45):
Perhaps the biggest issue and frustration facing the ISO is the prioritization of necessary blank and blank.
Physical and mental functions
The ISO must be blank to the needs of the IC as well as blank in the prevention of injuries to firefighters.
The two most common approach is to ISO duties include the use of blank and the use of blank.
To be effective, checklists and action bottles must have certain qualities that make them usable:
Flexibility, adaptability, cyclicity, productivity, and reactiveness
Most ISO tasks are blank in nature.
Blank is a template that outlines a mental or physical process that considers inputs that lead to an output or outcomes.
The biggest advantage of action models is that they furnish a template in which to process multiple inputs and a blank, blank, and blank way.
Logical, cyclic, and meaningful
Process to handle incidents, a process having a defined starting point and desired ending point (goal accomplishment)
Linear thinking process
The icy needs to think in a blank fashion, establishing a path and working toward a positive conclusion.
________ is depicted as a cyclic, four-arena model that allows the ISO to mentally process the surveying and analysis of typical answer activities and concerns.
Dodson/Vacra ISO action model
The DVISO action model components requiring evaluation and attention can be thought of as the?
As an action model the monitoring portion of MEDIC is an __. The evaluation becomes an ____, and developing, intervening, and communicating become ___, or____.
Actions or outputs
Ongoing surveys that are an exploratory examination of the incident scene conditions and activities.
Reconnaissance or recon
The ____ component (MEDIC) is perhaps the most important, and difficult, one to execute
Judgements are fifteen ____, and others may not perceive things the same way you do.
The _____ portion of the MEDIC is crucial and will become the springboard for developing preventive measures (proactive needs) and interventions (reactive needs)
Those spontaneous and reactive triggers you use to directly address evaluated hazards.
Are proactive actions you implement for forecasted hazards.
____ are those deliberate, spontaneous, and reactive triggers you use to directly address a hazard that you've evaluated.
Imminent threats require a _____ intervention- a _______- to stop, alter, suspend, or withdraw responded to prevent almost certain harm.
The ic must be notified (via radio) of any _____ interventions.
Blank interventions are used for hazards presenting potential harm or damage and or typically communicated through blank methods during the course of the incident.
Face to face
Interventions require Blank to deliver urgent and advisory messages.
The act of communicating includes the ability to blank.
Steps to help the ISO get dialed in:
1. Confirm ISO assignment
2. Collect info
3. Confirm communication links
4. Don appropriate PPE/ position ID
Where no IC direction is given, the ISO should start the blank if no imminent threat needs an intervention.
MEDIC action model
Focus areas that are common to all incidents:
Risk-taking level, personnel safety systems, and control zones
The ISO must confirm with the IC the ______ that is at play for a given incident.
Risk taking level
No risk to the safety of members shall be acceptable when there is no possibility to save lives or property
Activities that are routinely employed to protect property shall be recognized as inherent risks to the safety of members, and action shall be taken to reduce or avoid those risks. (Minimize risk for savable property)
Medium (risk-taking level)
Activity that present a significant risk to the safety of members shall be limited to situations in which there is a potential to save endangered lives (risk a lot to save people)
High (risk-taking level)
The blank gives the ISO a foundation from which to monitor and evaluate the conditions and activities taking place.
Declared risk profile
Key phrases that signal the completion of significant technical objectives.
All four sides of the Incident environment have been observed and notable factors have been communicated to the IC
A primary search of the incident environment has been completed
The destructive incident force has been controlled but not illuminated
Fire has been extinguished an overhaul and ventilation have been completed. No further loss is expected.
The overall safety system for individual firefighters includes:
PPE, accountability systems, RICs, and responder rehab
The individual safety systems that require ISO focus at all incidents are blank and blank.
Accountability systems and rehab
Discipline of company officers and crews as their accountability system.
Informal accountability system
The intent of each method of a accountability system is to track responders by blank, blank, and blank and provide a rapid method to do a blank
Number, function, and location
Personnel accountability report (PAR)
Failure to work w/in the framework of the action plan is a form of?
A firefighter working alone and is viewed as a dangerous and deadly enterprise
