Personnel, Stations and Apparatus

Battalion Chiefs – Operations

The three fire department battalion chiefs respond to fire and emergency medical calls, maintain records, and statistics pertaining to fire and rescue responses along with company fire inspections, training activities, and the maintenance of facilities and equipment. The battalion chief assigns specific tasks for the lieutenants and crews regularly.

At a fire scene, the battalion chief determines the method of fire attack, supervises the laying of hose lines, and directs the fire streams to extinguish and contain fires. In most emergency scenes, the battalion chief assumes command, is the authority having jurisdiction, and represents the fire department.
