The Importance of Initial Radio Traffic – Surfside, FL Condo Collapse

The Florida community of Surfside is still reeling from the sudden collapse of an condo building overnight a few days ago leaving 150 people presumed dead. While many news outlets are finding new security footage, as first responders we can learn a lot from talking to the responders first in on these scenes.

You’ll learn:

  • The importance of a good LCAN report (Location, Conditions, Actions, Needs)
  • Determining next steps and deploying to meet those needs
  • Transmit safe ingress and report additional hazards
  • At what point do “missing” become “presumed dead”
