Fire Suppression Rating Schedule — Fire Department

  1. GENERAL:
    This item reviews the engine and ladder-service companies, equipment carried, response to fires, training and available fire fighters.
  1. BASIC FIRE FLOW (BFF):
    From the Needed Fire Flows, determined in Item 340, the 5th highest is considered to be the Basic Fire Flow. The Needed Fire Flows for buildings in the city rated and coded sprinklered are not considered in determining the Basic Fire Flow. The maximum Basic Fire Flow is 3,500 gpm.
  1. NUMBER OF NEEDED ENGINE COMPANIES (NE): Commentary available for this item
    1. Number of Needed Engine Companies by Basic Fire Flow:
      BASIC FIRE FLOW, GPM NUMBER OF NEEDED ENGINE COMPANIES
      500 - 1,000

      2
      3
    2. Number of Needed Engine Companies for Distribution:
      An additional engine company is needed for each area where a company needed in 510.A will not satisfy the first-due response distance, as defined in Item 560, to 50 percent or more of a standard response district. A standard response district is a built-upon area that is within satisfactory response travel distance.

      An additional company is not needed for this item when it will not satisfy the response distance to at least 50 percent of a standard response district.

    3. Number of Needed Engine Companies for Areas Outside the City: Commentary available for this item
      When more than 10 percent of the total number of fire alarms are outside the city, and less than 50 percent of the companies needed for the city remain within the city, sufficient additional engine companies are needed to bring the number remaining within the city up to the 50 percent level. However, this provision is not applicable when an automatic-aid plan is credited under Item 512.
  1. NUMBER OF EXISTING ENGINE COMPANIES (EE): Commentary available for this item
    1. Engine Companies: Commentary available for this item
      Pumpers that are staffed on first alarms will be credited as existing engine companies. Only apparatus with permanently mounted pumps rated at 250 gpm or more at 150 psi shall be credited in this item.
    2. Engine-Ladder or Engine-Service Companies: Commentary available for this item
      Apparatus that carries both pumper and ladder-service equipment that is staffed on first alarms shall be credited as an existing engine company if needed according to Item 510.
    3. Automatic-Aid Engine Companies: Commentary available for this item
      Engine companies from outside the city and within 5 miles of the city limits will be credited when they respond according to a definite plan and offset the lack of needed engine companies.
  1. EQUIPMENT ON EXISTING ENGINE COMPANIES (ECi):
    For each company meeting the criteria of Item 511, the following items shall be reviewed:
    1. Pump Capacity (PCi): Commentary available for this item
      The actual pump capacity for each existing pumper shall be credited at rated pump pressure.

    2. Hose Carried (HCi): Commentary available for this item

    3. Equipment (Ei)
      The points credit for the equipment on each existing in-service pumper shall be determined from Tables 512.A, 512.B, and 512.C.
    4. Automatic-Aid Plan (AAi): Commentary available for this item
      The credit for responding automatic-aid companies is dependent upon the value of the automatic-aid arrangements (AAi), which is determined by application of the following:
          Maximum
      Value
      1. Communication Facilities.
        The alarm dispatch circuit between the department communication centers or between a central communication center and the aiding fire station should be the equivalent of the needed facilities in the city being rated. Review the facilities using Item 431. Multiply the number of points developed by application of Item 431 by 0.002.
        0.20
      1. Receipt of Alarms.
        The aiding departments receive all alarms from the city being rated, and dispatch their companies in the plan by running cards or equivalent.

    5. Calculation for Value of Existing Engine Companies (ECi):
      The value of ECi for each existing engine company shall be determined by the following formula:

    Note 1: The value of ECi shall be reduced by 2 percent for each 10 percent that the apparatus exceeds the manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating.

    Note 2: When automatic aid is credited to offset the lack of a needed engine company, multiply the value of ECi by the AAi developed for each credited automatic-aid engine company.

    Response areas with 5 buildings that are 3 stories or 35 feet or more in height, or with 5 buildings that have a Needed Fire Flow greater than 3,500 gpm, or any combination of these criteria, should have a ladder company. The height of all buildings in the city, including those protected by automatic sprinklers, is considered when determining the number of needed ladder companies.

    When no individual response district alone needs a ladder company, at least one ladder company is needed if buildings in the city meet the above criteria.

    When the number of existing ladder and service companies (ELS) exceeds the number of needed ladder and service companies, the number of needed reserve ladder and service trucks is based upon the number of existing ladder and service companies.

    ELS = EL + ES

    Note 1: When 8 or less ladder and service companies are needed, and 1 or more ladder companies are needed, the reserve truck should be a ladder truck. When more than 8 ladder companies are needed, there should be a reserve ladder truck for each 8, or fraction thereof.

    6. Surplus Companies (SC): Commentary available for this item
      When the number of existing companies exceeds the number of needed companies and the extra companies do not form a necessary part of the first alarm response to any location in the city, the extra companies are considered surplus. The personnel responding with surplus companies shall be credited in A and B above.

    When there is a difference between day and night shifts, or between days in the week, the credit shall be prorated.

    The maximum credit for any response of on-duty, call and volunteer members is 12 fire fighters, including company officers, for each existing engine and ladder company and 6 for each existing service company.

  1. CREDIT FOR COMPANY PERSONNEL (CCP):

    Note: The number of existing companies shall be adjusted, if necessary, to conform with Item 570.E.
