The Los Angeles Area Fire Chiefs Association’s Regional Training Group (RTG) has provided some excellent information worthy of every fire & EMS agency’s leadership review.
Of note is this statement in the link:
The Los Angeles Area Fire Chiefs Association comprises of 29 separate fire departments in the Los Angeles region. This incident saw the response of no less than 7 local fire departments that have trained to respond as one.
HERE IS THE LINK TO THE INFORMATION:
—-> 29 separate fire departments in a region that train and operate as one. They cannot be all that fundamentally different from other areas that consist of multiple separate fire departments who, when arriving on a scene, unfortunately operate as multiple separate fire departments.
Odd’s are, the thought “where there’s a will, there’s a way” fit’s in there somewhere in areas where multiple fire departments work hard to successfully operate as one.
Happy Mothers Day To All The Moms Out There.
