Pre Plan Project
The West Ridge Fire
Department has begun a Pre Plan Project to help with the operational
needs of the fire department. This project allows members of
WRFD to become familiar with the various and specific commercial
businesses and facilities in the first due district. This
includes retirement homes, department stores, HazMat facilities,
industrial facilities and much more.
In order for the fire
department to complete this task fully, designated members contact the
businesses and facilities to inform them of our goal. The second
step is to mail out a 3 page form that contains specific information
that WRFD is looking for. Once that form has been completed, a
tour is scheduled. During this tour, the designated members walk
the business or facility with an employee, take pictures of utility
locations or anything else that may help or hurt the fire department.
Also, during this tour, a floor plan is sketched out. This floor
plan allows the fire department to become familiar with the layout of
the business or facility.
After all the
information is compiled, the information is downloaded into the Mobile
Data Terminals (MDTs) located on the Chief's Vehicle, Engine 472,
Engine 474 and Tower 479. Since 2009, over 50 commercial
businesses and facilities have cooperated with the West Ridge Fire
Department in completing this task. The ultimate goal is to have
a pre plan for all commercial and industrial facilities in the West
Ridge Fire Department first due district.
If you business or
facility would like to participate in this Pre Plan Project, a
downloadable form is available below. Another option would be to
contact the fire department directly at
