2 NCFD Officers alone have over 190 years of combined service in the Emergency Services This equals THOUSANDS of hours of training Training paid for by the Community Training to Better Serve the Community DEDICATED TO: Life Safety Protection of Property

3 We responded to 959 calls for the fiscal year Fires 546 Emergency Medical calls 75 Motor Vehicle Accidents 47 Hazardous Condition calls 211 Service calls 49 False Alarms

4 NIOSH National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health OSHA Occupational Safety and Health Administration NFPA National Fire Protection Association We are bound to work in such a manner to be safe and efficient or face consequences that effect OUR COMMUNITY

5 We have implemented the purchasing of dual purpose fire apparatus; E-111 is designed for water supply and forest fires R-111 is designed for heavy/technical rescue and fire suppression This proposal will add a vehicle that will provide QUINTUPLE PURPOSE

6 A five year statistical average shows Coventry has built; 26 Single family homes 122 Accessory structures Residential additions/attached garages Numerous sub-divisions The Emergency Services must follow.

7 Fire apparatus in NCFD is 23+yrs old Fire apparatus in CVFA is 12-17yrs old No added fire apparatus TOWN WIDE in decades Emergency Service calls continue to increase 1991 Coventry had 1 ambulance ambulances Homes and buildings continue to increase in number and size

8 New homes are 29.34% larger in size than what was being built prior to We do not build 1200sq foot ranches any more The Fire Services need to Grow with the Community

9 Typical 2015 Construction 2400 or more square feet 3 stories

10 Insurance Services Office (ISO) Maintains A citation from Section 540 of the Insurance Services Office (ISO) Fire Suppression Rating Schedule specifically states, Response areas with 5 buildings that are 3 stories or 35 feet or more in height, or [have] 5 buildings that have a Needed Fire Flow greater than 3,500 gpm, or any combination of these criteria, should have a ladder company."

11 Insurance Services Office (ISO) Maintains To receive the highest points in an ISO evaluation for ladder service, the ladder unit must reach the roof of the tallest building in its service area or be 100 long, whichever is less. THIS DIRECTLY EFFECTS EACH HOMEOWNERS INSURANCE RATE

12 A residential fire doubles in intensity every seconds and can reach temperatures in excess of 1,800 degrees Fahrenheit. This requires firefighters to create ventilation paths by breaking windows or cutting holes in the roof BEFORE entering a burning building. LIGHT WEIGHT construction kills Firefighters. Truss roofs fail faster than rafter type roofs

13 In determining the need for acquiring an aerial device, we are not going to ignore the recommendations in the National Fire Protection Association`s Fire Protection Handbook, 17th edition, which recommends the following response patterns: High-hazard occupancies (schools, hospitals, nursing homes, high-rise buildings): at least four pumpers, two ladder trucks, and other specialized apparatus as may be identified or available for the hazard. Medium-hazard occupancies (apartments, offices, mercantile and industrial occupancies not normally requiring extensive rescue or firefighting capabilities): at least three pumpers, one ladder truck, and other specialized apparatus as may be identified or available. Low-hazard occupancies (one-, two-, or three-family dwellings and scattered businesses and industrial occupancies): at least two pumpers, one ladder truck, and other specialized apparatus as may be identified or available Fire Engineering Magazine

14 Coventry Homes Older homes with limited access

15 Coventry Condos Large multi-family buildings Expansive roofs Shrub and other ground obstacles

16 Converted Mills WE LACK GROUND LADDERS HIGH ENOUGH TO REACH OUR RESPONSE AREAS

17 Depending on the length of a ground ladder it takes anywhere from two to six firefighters to set up. These are not the same ladders you use to clean out your gutters. The ladders we use are industrial strength and very heavy. Aerial apparatus can be put into service by 1 or 2 people faster than setting up ground ladders and have a better effect.

18 Day dependent Weather dependent Time dependent Mutual aid requires additional time Nation Wide Issue and is not Volunteer or Career specific The first minutes of EVERY Emergency Incident is the most important The need for specific apparatus and personnel is paramount

19 4 Firefighters to set a ground ladder, vent a roof 4 Firefighters to make entry for RESCUE or Fire Suppression (2 in 2out NFPA requirement) Several other Firefighters to provide first aid to victims, get water, get tools, etc. In contrast, it takes only one firefighter to operate an aerial ladder truck, meaning the rest of the responders can work on things such as fire suppression.

20 Aerial apparatus must be first or second on scene Placement is critical to the operation COLLAPSE zones MUST be considered (leading to correct aerial size) Rural driveways are not suited for multiple apparatus Big water supply lines are near impossible to move once in use HOLLYWOOD does not help our image!

21 Safety in Numbers Workers Comp reduces already low personnel turnout and effects the community where it hurts the most in the pocket

22 A five year statistical average shows Coventry has had; 2.4 civilian injuries from fires, 21.4 building fires, 24.2 other fires, With a property loss rate of over $225k

23 Today's Quint is designed to provide tools for firefighters to carry out these tactical firefighting functions: Supply fires streams (hoses and large scale waterway) Provide initial and continuing water supply Provide personnel with SAFE access to elevated areas (ground ladder complement and aerial device) Provide elevated master fire stream. Provide access to areas that ground ladders cannot High point anchor for technical rescue operations Various other functions for rescue Water rescue Below grade rescue Tree rescues

24

25

26 When responding to a fire in a 2-story or higher building, a Quint provides greater capabilities with fewer firefighters. This can Aid in Life Safety (victim rescue) Provide for less damage to homes Provide a faster means of fire attack Increase Firefighter safety

27 Rescue Operations The lay of the land, multiple roofs, inaccessible chimneys

28 Rescue Operations March 17 th 2013, 1926 We were dispatched to a child stuck in a tree. We arrived on scene in Two minutes and needed to start a mutual aid ladder truck that arrived 15 minutes later. In 23 F, 12 MPH Winds making it a Wind Chill Factor of 3 o gives us 30 minutes time for beginning stages of hypothermia.

29 As reliable as our Mutual Aid is, they are just as unreliable as we are to them when we are busy. UConn 2014 calls 3000 Mansfield 2014 calls 2200 We are surrounded by other VOLUNTEER departments By relying on mutual aid aerials from surrounding towns, it takes precious minutes (15-20) for the specialty equipment to arrive. Given that, a residential fire doubles in intensity every seconds. MINUTES MEAN EVERYTHING

30 Real numbers reported fire in a chimney 2 family 2 ½ story home NCFD dispatch at 1709hrs Mutual Aid aerial request at 1713hrs (not part of initial dispatch) NCFD units arrived at 1716hrs UConn Fire Department arrived at 1729hrs ALL COVENTRY APPARATUS HAD TO STAGE AWAY from the scene for 13 minutes to prevent the aerial apparatus from being blocked We were able to do some operational tasks but were hampered by mutual aid time factor (and they were in quarters)

31 Safe Operations Pitch of the roof Chimney in the middle of the roof and extended high above the roof line Snow banks hinder ground ladders

32 There is an inability of mutual aid department ladder trucks to reach some homes in town. Our mutual aid town aerials were not built for the roads or lake district in Coventry. There s also no guarantee a ladder truck will be available when we need it to be!

33

34 Area Towns are growing like we are Area Towns have their own incidents Area Towns have personnel shortages We are all constantly being tasked to do more with less this compromises SAFETY!

35 Homes Continue to Grow VERSATILITY IS A MUST

36 And GROWING GIVE US THE ABILITY TO FLOW ENOUGH GALLONS PER MINUTE OF WATER FOR HOMES SIMILAR TO THIS

37 Operations with Ground Ladders Working from this roof is impossible Rescue from the top floor is impossible

38 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY HELP US BETTER PROTECT YOUR FAMILY

39 We cannot predict what will be built in the next years, we need to be prepared ahead of time. The apparatus in Coventry is aging. Apparatus is built to last 20yrs!! This purchase will assist with up and coming replacements or refurbishments Town Wide.

40 Rescue Technical Rescue

41 Home Styles Multiple roof systems Limited access

42 Reality Of What We Do WE ARE UNABLE TO WORK ON THESE ROOFS

43 Factors THIS WOULD REQUIRE US TO PLACE GROUND LADDERS AT AN UNSAFE ANGLE TO REACH UPPER ROOF

44 We Want to PROTECT YOU WE ARE UNABLE TO ACCESS MOST CHIMNEYS WITH USING GROUND LADDERS

45 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY HELP US BETTER PROTECT YOUR FAMILY & FRIENDS

46 Help Us Help You Tight driveways-life safety-large fire loads-operational strategies WE MUST PLAN FOR THE UNKNOWN IN ORDER TO BE READY FOR ANYTHING

47

48 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY COST FACTORS: 2 TRUCKS IN ONE NOT A NEW CONCEPT (PROVEN OPERATIONAL TACTIC) BUYING THE CORRECT SIZED APPARATUS

49 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY A 75 QUINT WOULD NOT BE LONG ENOUGH TO REACH THE ROOF WITH VEHICLES OCCUPYING THE DRIVEWAY WE HAVE TESTED THIS THEORY!!

50 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY ONLY A 100 LADDER IS GOING TO HAVE THE ABILITY TO REACH UPPER WINDOWS/ROOF

51 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY WE NEED A VEHICLE THAT WILL PROVIDE THE MOST SERVICES AT A TIME OF REDUCED BUDGETS

52 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY If we can t get to you we can t help you

53 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY HELP US BETTER PROTECT OUR FAMILIES AND CHERISHED POSESSIONS

54 PROTECTING OUR OWN WE NEED THE PROPER TOOLS

55 SERVING OUR COMMUNITY HELP US BETTER PROTECT YOUR FAMILY Would you rather us have quick access to a top floor to rescue family or WAIT 20 minutes for the proper-needed apparatus?
