OUR MISSION STATEMENT
  
The Port Jervis Fire Department is dedicated to safeguarding the lives, property,
and environment of our community through exceptional services in education,
preparedness, prevention and prompt response to emergency incidents.

 

 


The Port Jervis Fire Department consists off nearly 340 dedicated volunteer members.
There are 5 fire stations located strategically within the the city limits.
The Port Jervis Fire Department's vehicle apparatus consists off four pumpers,
a Squrt articulating boom, an aerial ladder truck, a Rescue & Salvage truck,
a Fire Police vehicle, two river rescue boats, and three Chief's vehicles. 
We have a High Angle Rescue team and other specialized teams.
 
One of the highlights of the fire department is its annual Fireman's Day Parade,
which we are told is the oldest continuous fireman's parade in the US.
In 2014 we are celebrating our 164th parade.

Your Community Needs You - Volunteer as a Fire Fighter to Make a Difference!

The Port Jervis Volunteer Fire Department is actively seeking volunteers 

of many backgrounds for our Firefighter and FireCorps roles.


Every day, in every community, emergency responders answer the call of our families, friends and neighbors who are in need of assistance. From house fires to technical rescues to car accidents, to floods, our emergency responders are there to protect lives and property.

 

Emergency responders are a special type of people, with many different reasons for answering the call of duty. Some like the challenges and the adrenaline rush, while others like to sharpen their emergency skills and techniques.  Every one of them answers the call so that they can help someone in need.

 

Today's emergency responders do far more than put out fires. Emergency responders are the first line of defense in natural and man-made disasters. They respond to vehicle accidents, water incidents, hazardous materials incidents, specialized rescue situations and a vast array of other emergency situations.

 

In response to the aging and declining membership and the need for new volunteer firefighters, the Port Jervis Volunteer Fire Department has initiated a recruitment campaign for interested citizens, men and woman, to learn how to "answer the call" and serve their community.

 

Becoming a volunteer firefighter can be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life, and allows you to reach out to someone in need. Together with the Port Jervis Volunteer Fire Department, you can insure that there is always someone to "answer the call".

 
Contact any fire station, any firefighter, or go to pjnyfd.com for an application or more information.

MAYDAY POLICY
Proposed by County

PLEASE READ FOR DISCUSSION AT JULY Board of Officers meeting
........

Orange County MAYDAY and URGENT Guide
 Purpose:
It is the objective of this guide to use a standard, easily understood system countywide.
 
This guide is intended to:
1. Establish operating guidelines to assist in the event of a MAYDAY or URGENT situation.
2. Establish a uniformed method for giving priority to emergency radio communication messages.
3. Be used by all Orange County Fire Departments. These procedures may be modified by the Fire Department Incident Commander, or officers as emergency conditions dictate.
 
Scope:
·        This guide applies to all emergency fire personnel operating in Orange County.
·        The signal for a missing or lost member, unconscious or severely injured member, or a structural collapse is imminent or has occurred, or trapped member(s) is MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY.
·        The signal for a serious situation that has the potential to endanger operating members or fireground operations is URGENT,URGENT,URGENT.
·        The MAYDAY or URGENT transmission shall continue until acknowledged by the incident commander.
·        Upon transmission of a MAYDAY or URGENT signal all other radio traffic shall clear the channel until the MAYDAY or URGENT has been identified.
·        The MAYDAY signal may be transmitted by all fire department personnel who become lost/injured/trapped or in imminent danger and in need of immediate assistance.
·        Any personnel that are made aware of a missing/injured/trapped member or a structural problem must declare a MAYDAY.
·        Any personnel that observe or are made aware of a serious situation must declare a URGENT. If you are unsure of whether you have a URGENT or MAYDAY situation ALWAYS call a MAYDAY.
·        Individuals who transmit a MAYDAY should provide, Who you are, Why you called the MAYDAY, Where you are located, What you need to rectify the situation. The same applies to a URGENT situation
·        Upon acknowledgement of a MAYDAY, Command shall immediately deploy a FAST/RIT/Rescue team. Repeat the MAYDAY situation. Notify dispatch and activate the MAMA’s MAYDAY plan.
·        Dispatch will announce, on request of incident command, the MAYDAY situation and dispatch the MAYDAY resources.
·        Only the Incident Command may cancel a MAYDAY once it has been given. Normal operations may then resume.
 
It is of extreme importance that all crews continue to operate at their pre-designated assignment.
 
Standard Policy for a MAYDAY or URGENT Situation
 
Definition of a MAYDAY:
MAYDAY is used to signal a LIFE THREAT to any FIREFIGHTER. This could involve any current situation, or an imminent situation. This term is not used for a life threatening situation involving a civilian. If a member’s life is in danger you MUSTUnconscious or severely injured member, Structural collapse is imminent or has occurred, Trapped member(s). The MAYDAY needs to be transmitted immediately.
 
Definition of a URGENT:
URGENT is used to signal a serious situation that has the potential to either endanger the safety of operating members or significantly impact fire ground operations. Some items that could be considered an URGENT, Severe change in conditions, Loss of water, Injury to a member (non – life threatening), Danger of collapse, Evacuate structure. If in doubt of whether you have a URGENT or MAYDAY situation you should ALWAYS transmit a MAYDAY.
 
Evacuation Signal
When an immediate evacuation of the structure is warranted, in addition to a radio transmission, the signal shall be 3 blasts of an apparatus air horn for 2 seconds on each blast by 1 apparatus.
 
Transmitting a MAYDAY:
The message should be transmitted in such a way that commands attention of all members. First say MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY, followed by identifying WHO is transmitting the MAYDAY. At this time no other radio traffic shall be transmitted until the nature of the MAYDAY is identified.
 
Transmitting a URGENT:
As with a MAYDAY situation, the message should be transmitted in such a way that commands attention of all members. First say URGENT, URGENT, URGENT, followed by identifying WHO is transmitting the URGENT. At this time no other radio traffic shall be transmitted until the nature of the URGENT is identified.
 
After the MAYDAY is transmitted:
If a MAYDAY is transmitted and command doesn’t acknowledge it, then the MAYDAY should be acknowledged by anyone hearing it and relayed to command.  Once the MAYDAY is acknowledged, the member shall announce WHY they are transmitting the MAYDAY, WHERE they are located and WHAT they need. Command shall repeat the MAYDAY situation on the fireground channel and notify the dispatch center of the MAYDAY situation. Dispatch shall transmit, at request of command, on the countywide channel, that a MAYDAY situation is in progress, repeat what the MAYDAY situation is and implement the MAMA’S MAYDAY plan if requested. The FAST/RIT/Rescue team shall be deployed and a Roll Call/PAR shall be conducted to determine if all members are accounted for.
 
It is of extreme importance that all crews continue to operate at their pre-designated assignment.
 
After the URGENT is transmitted:
If a URGENT is transmitted and command doesn’t acknowledge it, then the URGENT should be acknowledged by anyone hearing it and relayed to command. Once the URGENT is acknowledged, the member shall announce WHY they are transmitting the URGENT, WHERE they are located and WHAT the problem is and what they need. Command shall repeat the URGENT situation on the fireground channel . Incident command could consider having the county putting message over all operating  and/or dispatch channels as may be the case of an evacuation.
 
MAYDAY Communications
In most MAYDAY instances, changing channels is not recommended, however it may be instituted at the discretion of command.  In the event that the incident commander deems it necessary to establish the emergency fireground channel, all members not directly involved with the rescue operations of the firefighter(s) in distress shall switch to the Emergency Fire Ground channel and continue their assigned operations. The firefighter(s) in distress shall never be asked to switch channels and the FAST/RIT/Rescue team will be on the same channel as the distressed firefighter(s).
 
Examples of a MAYDAY transmission:
Note: Members shall utilize their department guideline/SOP as to their position/assignment/identifier or name when transmitting a MAYDAY.
 
Engine 234 Officer: “MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY, Engine 234 Officer to Command, member trapped, MAYDAY”
 
Command: “Command to Engine 234 Officer, go ahead with your MAYDAY”
 
Engine 234 Officer: “MAYDAY, Engine 234 Officer to Command, we have a member who fell thru the first floor into the basement and is trapped on the 3 side of the building, Need the Rescue team with ropes.”
 
Command:  “Copied, Engine 234 officer MAYDAY, has a member who fell thru the first floor into the basement and is trapped on the 3 side of the building, Need the Rescue team with ropes.”
 
Same situation with the member calling it:
Firefighter Jones: “MAYDAY, MAYDAY, MAYDAY, FF Jones to Command, I’ve fell thru the first floor into the basement on the 3 side of the building and need the Rescue team with ropes.”
 
Command: “Command to FF Jones, Received MAYDAY transmission, you are located in the basement on the 3 side, Rescue team is on the way”
  
It is of extreme importance that all crews continue to operate at their pre-designated assignment.
  
Examples of a URGENT transmission:
Note: Members shall utilize their department guideline/SOP as to their position/assignment/identifier or name when transmitting a URGENT.
 
Engine 234 Chauffeur: “URGENT,URGENT,URGENT, Engine 234 Chauffeur to Command, water loss, URGENT”
 
Command: “ Command to Engine 234 Chauffeur, go ahead with your URGENT”
 
Engine 234 Chauffeur: “Engine 234 Chauffeur URGENT, I have lost my water supply, Hydrant line was run over by a vehicle, need to shut down hydrant and replace severed supply hose”
 
MAYDAY Dispatch Procedure
In the MAYDAY situation, Dispatch will do the following on request of Incident Command:
Ask for Radio Silence, except for emergency traffic, on the dispatch channel to allow for command to make requests for assistance.
Dispatch an additional FAST/RIT/Rescue team to the scene.
Dispatch the next box alarm to include a minimum of 2 Engines. If the department doesn’t have a pre-planned MAYDAY MAMA’s box, dispatch the nearest 2 Engines.
Dispatch an ALS Ambulance to the scene.
Put a Helicopter on standby.
Dispatch an EMS Coordinator and additional Fire Coordinator to the scene.
   
Other consideration for Incident Commanders should be given to the following needs:

Specialized equipment – ie: Backhoes, Loaders, Crane, Tow Truck, Vacuum Truck, Quads/4 wheelers etc.
Haz-mat

 The Littlest Firefighter 

In Phoenix, Arizona, a 26-year-old mother stared   down at her son who was dying of terminal leukemia. Although her heart was filled with sadness, she also had a strong feeling of determination. Like any parent, she wanted her son to grow up and fulfill all his dreams. Now that was no longer possible.  The leukemia would see to that.

  But she still wanted her son's dreams to come true. She took her son's hand and asked, "Billy, did you ever think about what  you wanted to be once you grew up? Did you ever  dream and wish what you would do with your life?" 


  Mommy, "I always wanted to be a fireman when I  grew up."  Mom smiled back and said, "Let's see if we can make  your wish come true."
 
  Later that day she went to her local fire department in Phoenix, Arizona, where she met Fireman Bob, who  had a heart as big as Phoenix. She explained her son's final wish and asked if it might be possible to give her six-year-old son a ride around the block on a fire engine.
 
  Fireman Bob said, "Look, we can do better than that. If you'll have your son ready at seven o'clock Wednesday morning, we'll make him an honorary fireman for the whole day. He can come down to the fire station, eat with us, go out on all the fire calls,  the whole nine yards! And if you'll give us his sizes, we'll get a real fire uniform for him, with a real fire  hat-not a toy one-with the emblem of the Phoenix Fire Department on it, a yellow slicker like we wear and rubber boots. They're all manufactured right here in Phoenix, so we can get them fast."
 
  Three days later Fireman Bob picked up Billy, dressed him in his fire uniform and escorted him  from his hospital bed to the waiting hook and  ladder truck. Billy got to sit on the back of the  truck and help steer it back to the fire station.  He was in heaven. There were three fire calls in  Phoenix that day and Billy got to go out on all three calls. He rode in the different fire engines, the paramedic's van, and even the fire chief's car.


  He was also videotaped for the local news program. Having his dream come true, with all the love and  attention that was lavished upon him, so deeply touched Billy that he lived three months longer than any doctor thought possible.
 
  One night all of his vital signs began to drop  dramatically and the head nurse, who believed in  the hospice concept that no one should die alone, began to call the family members to the hospital.  Then she remembered the day Billy had spent as a fireman, so she called the Fire Chief and asked if it would be possible to send a fireman in uniform to the hospital to be with Billy as he made his transition. The chief replied, "We can do better than  that. We'll be there in five minutes. Will you please  do me a favor? When you hear the sirens screaming and see the lights flashing, will you announce over  the PA system that there is not a fire? It's just the  fire department coming to see one of its finest  members one more time. And will you open the  window to his room?" 


  About five minutes later a hook and ladder truck  arrived at the hospital and extended its ladder up  to Billy's third floor open window. 16 firefighters climbed up the ladder into Billy's room. With his  mother's permission, they hugged him and held him and told him how much they loved him.
 
  With his dying breath, Billy looked up at the fire  chief and said, "Chief, am I really a fireman now?"  "Billy, you are, and the Head Chief, Jesus,

is  holding your hand," the chief said. With those words,  Billy smiled and said, "I know, He's been holding my hand all day, and the angels

    He closed his eyes one last time.
