IX. The Crew Board

The crew board is located above the base station. It is used to record who is on duty, what radios members have taken out and hospital statuses.

To fill in the crew board:

  • Write the date.
  • Check the log book and make sure that whoever is on shift is on the board. Use only first names. If someone's name is on the board and he or she has already signed out, erase the name.
  • Check the equipment log book and write down the radio number of each member on shift. Also record the frequency that the person is using on the crew board ("1" for quick call or "5" for normal use).
  • For hospital statuses, write the time that they were obtained near "as of:" and the person's dispatch number near "as per:." Then write the status of each hospital near its name.
