Nearly every level of Public Service at which we could be deployed has a FOG or Field Operations Guide. Even if you are not in the middle of an incident they have a wealth of information on operating and equipment and procedures. It is Free so its worth every penny.
On Android or IPhone go to your app store and search for “Public Safety Library” (at least that is what it is called on my Android).
Once it is installed the three FOGs you will want to install first will be
- Wisconsin Interoperable Communications Field Operations Guide (WIFOG)
- National Interoperability Field Operations Guide (NIFOG)
- Auxiliary Communications Field Operations Guide (AuxFOG)
Once you have them installed go ahead and browse. You’ll find some interesting stuff in there. And let us know what you think.
