There continues to be a direct communications link between London Fire Brigade Control and the Incident Commander (IC) via Airwave digital radios. On fire engines these radios are vehicle-mounted, whereas officers have handheld digital radios for this purpose. The revised Fire Survival Guidance (FSG) policy directs Control and the IC to a designated Airwave radio channel to facilitate the uninterrupted passing of FSG information between them. An FSG technology solution project is underway to develop an electronic system allowing the simultaneous recording and updating of FSG call information and actions being taken to resolve those calls. Control and ICs will be able to update this system in real time ensuring that there is a single electronic reference source for all FSG information. This solution is currently in development, with rollout anticipated by December 2020.
