The primary purpose of a fire department and the core reason for its existence is to fight fires; this core work is carried out primarily by the fulltime members of the Orleans Fire Department. Fire Suppression response relies on several key factors which include; early notification, rapid response and an aggressive interior fire attack to suppress fires before they can increase in size.

The Orleans Fire Department also employs current technology to safely fight fires during an aggressive initial fire attack these technologies include:

  • the most up-to-date personal protective equipment,
  • (3) Thermal imaging cameras.
  • NFPA compliant SCBAS’

Even with all today’s technology most actual fire fighting cannot be accomplished without sufficient training and an abundance of manual labor on scene to extinguish the fire.

ISO RATING

A community committed to saving lives and property needs trained firefighters, proper equipment, and adequate supplies of water. Insurance companies consider it good public policy - and good business - to promote and encourage the efforts of individual communities to improve their fire protection services.

ISO Mitigation Online collects information on a community's public fire protection and analyzes the data using the Fire Suppression Rating Schedule (FSRS). ISO then assigns a Public Protection Classification from 1 to 10. Class 1 represents the best public protection, and Class 10 indicates no recognized protection. The town of Orleans has an ISO rating of 4.

 

A physically fit, appropriately trained and equipped, rapidly deployed, sufficiently sized workforce is still the key to successful fire suppression.”
