Abstract:

The scope and objective of this study was to perform a systems analysis of the trans-attack and post-attack communications requirements for fire-fighting operations and control primarily at the metropolitan area level. The emphasis was on determining communications requirements and not means. We believe the study satisfied this objective by deriving communications functions, delineating the information communicated between functions, developing a traffic model from these data, and applying queueing theory to evaluate the effects of specific communications and organizational parameters against traffic criteria. This approach was selected because we believe that measures such as delay time and number of channels required as a function of traffic density and organizational structure best reflect the problems of fire-fighting communications during trans- and post-attack periods.
