Beaumont Fire Department better prepared for emergencies

President Bush signed an order after 9/11 to get first responders to follow the same standards as something called the national incident management system.  That system sets up guidelines for departments to follow to improve their response to emergencies.

The Beaumont fire chief says the Beaumont Fire Department is one of the first in the state to take steps to ensure firefighters can use the response plan for emergencies and day-to-day operations.          

The plan includes more deputy chiefs five instead of three. One will oversee planning, the other how to carry out the plans and the department will also add a captain.

The goal is to make sure the department is always ready to cover the community based on standards set out by the 'national incident management plan.

The chief says it's important to manage risk. She says the department can do that by practicing and setting up a plan to respond to any emergency.
