What are other fire departments doing in response to ASI's? What is the Charlotte Mecklenburg Police Department's (CMPD) plan of action at ASI's? What can be done to better the response of the CFD to ASI's? How can the CFD take a more active role in tactical operations during ASI's? This research was accomplished by conducting a survey, an exhaustive literature review, personal interviews, and an analysis of department policies and procedures. The findings of this research show that the CFD is not prepared to play an active role on the tactical level in the mitigation of ASI's. In order for the department to become active on this level it must address the issues brought forth in this research in regards to administrative guidance, training and equipment. Furthermore, the department must give guidance as to what it expects each company to do during ASI's.
Recommendations include the development of comprehensive SOG's as well as the establishment of a Tactical Medic program including 3 Tactical Companies in strategic locations throughout the city. These companies should be trained and equipped to operate cohesively within CMPD's REDS program. Their primary function will be to extract and treat wounded civilians. Thus filling a void in the local response system for ASI's.
