ESF 4: Firefighting

The purpose of ESF 4 is to identify the internal and external departments responsible for firefighting actions that may take place in an emergency. The ESF provides and coordinate resources (personnel, equipment, facilities, materials and supplies) to support firefighting needs during an emergency or disaster.

Concept of Operations

Because the district does not operate its own firefighting capability, the ESF coordinator will assign the ESF support agency respective to campus location and with primary jurisdiction as the primary agency for this ESF.

National Incident Management System concepts will be used for all incidents. INcident or Unified Command will be used by responding departments and agencies. When requested, ESF personnel will report to the EOC and utilize the EOP, its annexes and other SOPs to activate and operate during an incident or event.
