Since i'm feeding the Fire feeds, I wanted to know how to tell the ALARM-LEVEL for Pinellas county. Anyone know? Thanks for any help..

Here is an Example.

8519 FORSYTH DR N STRUCTURE FIRE
T29 E31 E29
E32 D29 S29
T28 E30 449BA
SE600 PD6 D27
SE400 PE1 PS400

Would this be a one alarm or 2?

From my experience in the fire service, that would look to be a multi alarm. Just a guess though, everybody does it differently!

Out of all those units, half of them are actual firefighting apparatus. That is a single alarm (For Pinellas) plus one apparatus.

If it is a multi-alarm, it will say that as the incident type on the CAD.

Where can I find that info? I currently browse the county 911 map here is there a better place to check? and what is CAD? I will assume it stands for Computer Aided Dispatch. where can I view that?

Thanks Again

That link is the public CAD. When it's more than 1 alarm, the incident type changes from STRUCTURE FIRE to MULTI-ALRM STRUCTURE FIRE.
