FIRE DEPARTMENT INCIDENT MANAGEMENT STRUCTURE
Littleton Fire Chief Pessemier and Division Chief Burdick took over the management of the medical issues from their first arriving Battalion Chief, Ray Rayne. Medical concerns included setting up four triage areas, transporting the wounded, and coordinating a joint effort rescue of wounded students in an active situation with law enforcement personnel providing protective cover fire. They also made plans for any fire-related issues that might occur at or in the school. Their coordination was crucial due to the task at hand and the number of different agencies they managed by using the above management structure.
