Scenario: It is 2:03 a.m. on adark and stormy night. In fact, a thunderstorm began at 9:15 p.m.,just a few hours ago, and it seems to have only gained strength.You are a first-responder in a large metropolitan city and on-dutyat the station house. BOOM! There goesanother thunder boom. It startles you. You just begin to sooth yournerves when the siren goes off. It’s go time! You suite up, get inthe firetruck, and start driving towards an unknown scene.Information starts coming in through dispatch. “Four chemicaltrucks have collided on the entrance to the expressway”. …just as this dispatchcomes in, the firetruck you are in slams the breaks and you feelthe firetruck slide a good distance. The driver says on the radio,“Whew! That was close. This torrential down-pour is making theseroads slick!” You focus yourattention back to the dispatches arriving, in near rapid-firesuccession, over the radio: “Be aware that two of the chemicaltrucks are leaking and the other two are a possible leak as well.”“Two POVs (privately-owned vehicles) are involved on scene as well.Both crashes, one into a chemical truck that is leaking, the otherinto a tree on the shoulder” “Be advised the POV crash, into theleaking chemical truck, has two children and two adults inside thevehicle. Unconfirmed if dead or alive.” You arrive on scene toa true catastrophe. Your firetruck is the first fire response onscene. The metro city police, and county police, are already on thescene. State police response is uncertain. As you move towards thescene to assess the situation, you hear the metro police captainand the county sheriff arguing: “This is MY scene toprocess, Sheriff! The chemical truck at-fault had an intoxicateddriver. This is going to get the good citizens of metro citymuch-needed funding for projects, such as a homeless shelter and amobile needle-exchange program.” “No it’s not!” Yelledthe sheriff. “This involves a multi-collision chemical truckaccident and I have to notify the state police so they can send aHAZMAT and decontamination unit. That is MY responsibility. Thecounty is going to sue that rotten chemical company for employingintoxicated drivers because WE need the money!” You then hear loudhonking. You look back, to access to the scene, and see carsstopped in a long succession- access to the scene is blocked! Yourealize that law enforcement, who are still driving to the scene,are going to be delayed. You get on your radio to tell dispatch tonotify law enforcement and that a traffic re-route is going to beneeded. You push the talk button on your radio and it doesn’t work.The battery died! You hop back into thedriver’s seat of the firetruck. You get on the radio to call inyour requests in to dispatch. You find a working radio and begin tocall it in. You get a garbled reply- you cannot tell, afterrepeating the communication three times, if dispatch has a goodcopy of your transmission. You then switch thefrequency to the ‘interoperable communications’ frequency that hasbeen designated for state, county, and local law enforcement tocommunicate on during a critical incident. You send a call out andonly the state policy reply. You receive the following reply: “Goodcopy- we were unaware that the critical incident happened. Can youtell the sheriff to get on this radio? We learned yesterday thatthe sheriff’s office couldn’t access this frequency with theirradios.”
