TYPE:          OPERATIONS                                                                                                            
TITLE:        NORWALK HOSPITAL APPARATUS ASSIGNMENTS
DATE:         Aug 20, 2009 (Replaces version dated April 19, 1984)
   
 

 PURPOSE:
Provide for standard response to fire alarms at Norwalk Hospital.
 
PROCEDURE:
 Upon receipt of a fire alarm at Norwalk Hospital, regardless of whether in the “old section” or “new section”, apparatus will report to the following locations:
 
Car 2:
At main entrance to Hospital. Establishes command, makes contact with security to verify location of alarm and type of incident. (Car 2, or Car 2 aide, may also check alarm panel to verify location if necessary).  
 
Engine 2:
Stage at Elmcrest Avenue and Stevens Street, near hydrant.
 
Truck 2:
At employee entrance on Stevens Street. Proceed to alarm location with building security to investigate alarm.
 
Rescue 2:
Stage at employee entrance on Stevens Street, prepared to support Truck 2 if directed.
 
Engine 1:
Proceed to main entrance ramp on Maple Street, staging near FDC connection, prepared to pump into FDC if directed. (See “water supply” below)
 
Truck 1:
Stage at Prospect & Maple.  (If so directed by I.C., Truck 1 can pull into ambulatory entrance and crew can enter building from here).
 
 
NOTE:  None of the above precludes the I.C. from assigning apparatus to different locations if information is received en-route, reporting an actual fire or other incident at a specified location in the building.
 
 
 
Water Supply
Pumping into any FDC at Norwalk Hospital, regardless of whether labeled “sprinkler connection” or “standpipe connection” will supply all the fire protection systems with water.  The building fire pump will automatically activate when water is flowing from a sprinkler head or standpipe outlet.
 
NOTE: The parking garage is a separate dry system which the fire department must pump into to supply water to the system.
