Damage site

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In Switzerland, the area around an object that is affected by an incident that requires the use of security and / or rescue services is referred to as the damage site . This term is not known in Germany; The technical term deployment site used there is comparable .

Importance for missions

At the Swiss fire brigade , the head of operations, as the decision maker at the damage site, defines the work zones of the emergency services present on site. The reserves and partner organizations are formed around these work zones. Fixed hierarchies and operational processes prevail at the damage site , into which all those involved have to be classified. In this regard, the Swiss Fire Brigade Coordination (FKS) publishes emergency documentation for certain incidents, such as the technical guidelines for intervention in the event of fires in road tunnels , where, among other things, the organization of the damage site is documented in order to enable comprehensive deployment planning.

Various federal offices also issue emergency documentation that regulates behavior at the damage site and organization of the damage site, including the Federal Food Safety and Veterinary Office (FSVO) with the "Requirements for access and exit of people" at the damage site or the Federal Office of Transport (BAV) with the "deployment planning according to accident ordinance for railways".
