I've always wondered at the terminology: why is the adjective "three" always
*after* the noun "pump", and what's the significance of the verb "make"
(which I interpret in the sense "fabricate") when "send" might seem better?

I'm sure the origins of the fire-brigade jargon are lost in the mists of
time.

IIRC from uncle in LFB "Make pumps 3" is as in "make 3 the number of
pumps assigned" so the control centre knows that's the total called for

If the message was "send 3 pumps" then the scope for misunderstanding is
wide:

send 3 in total?
send 3 more than the 1 on scene?
send 3 more than the 1 on scene and the further 1 already on its way?

> I'm sure the origins of the fire-brigade jargon are lost in the mists of

When I meet odd terminology I tend to start with an open mind to the
possibility that there may be very good reasons for it which aren't
necessarily apparent. Another example of that is why in the forces if a
radio message is unclear you ask the sender to "say again" rather than
"repeat".

And we don't want people sending three-and-fourpence.

I'm always intrigued why USA cops in Hollywood say "Copy That" all the
time. Nobody sees to paste anything.

Meanwhile, a light plane in north west Cambs reports its position: "I'm
over Over; over".

THe fire brigades have always had very good radio procedure using formal
messages, rather like the military.

By comparison, the police always sounded like a bunch of CBers.

Ah, so it doesn't instruct a given fire station to send 3 pumps, and instead
requires a knowledge of how many pumps from other sources are already on
their way or at the site.

Looking at it with an open mind, you'd think that control would send
instructions to each station in the form

Town 1 - send 2 pumps and a ladder
Town 2 - send 3 pumps

Without Town 1 having to know how many pumps Town 2 is sending, so they can
interpret "Make pumps 5" correctly.

Or have I misunderstood what you were saying?

They evidently thought their way was clearer and less ambiguous, and it's
never changed, so it must work OK for them. Who are we, non-firemen, to
quibble? ;-)

Around here (when we used to be able to hear them), it could be musical
chairs. The local appliances could be both turned out so Kinlochleven
would sometimes come up to Fort William and Oban would send one to park
up around Ballachulish to cover that area.

For larger incidents or longer term ones, they would be brought in from
all over the place.

Most interesting locally was when the large bulk carrier caught fire at
Glensanda, several appliances were sent over on the quarry's ferry and
the Coastguard tug came down from Stornoway. The quarry canteen was
kept open around the clock with everything free so they were living on
steaks. :-)

I was about to ask what you've sort-of answered: do ambulance and police use
similar protocols when the first person to arrive on the scene and to assess
the scale of the problem tells control "send a total of X vehicles - you
work out how many of them to call from each station".

I think you have misunderstood from the outset who is sending the
message to whom. "Make pumps 3" is not a message from control to
station(s). It is a message /to/ control from the incident. (At
Grenfell e.g. there was "make pumps twenty five".)

What changes do you think would improve the speed and reliability of
their procedures for requesting appliances?

The pumps are dispatched by a central control room who know how many
have been deployed, and from where. "Make pumps X" from a firefighter in
the field is therefore never sent to an individual station.

In practice it was more likely to be just names with a few expletives.
One local Plod got an earful because he did not realise that the PR

Aren't there protocols that first on scene becomes Incident Officer or
something like that and might put the appropriate tabard on.

It would normally be from a person at the incident but there are
probably occasions when someone else, control or Fire Officer on way to
the scene, might increase it.

Fire always used to have a scaled response with 3 immediate, another 3
within 5 minutes etc etc.

Of course if it is Manchester then it if 3 in a few hours time.

And a road accident with Plod Scotland is send a car in a couple of days
time like when they left the woman to died in her car.

As happened in a drill that I was involved with. In the main control
centre, where I was stationed, a call from an on-site commander was
heard as "the fire is out" and the exercise then moved on to the
anti-pollution element. In fact the on-scene commander had said that
"the fire is out of control" but the walkie talkie was not powerful
enough and failed part way through the transmission.

That one's also in the railway rule book, and I seem to have adopted it for
everyday use too.

The specific format with the sequencing of the words distinguishes it
from being "just another message" and pre-sorts the required detail of
the required appliances otherwise the person on control has to
remember the quantity while looking for the type of vehicle required
on the (previously paper) form being filled in. Radio messaging in
various services has distinct words, sequencing etc. to aid
understanding and avoid delay.

That depends on the premises or place. Standard attendance for a house
where I live is two appliances; other premises will be in accordance
with their assessment.

I also use other terminology, especially on the phone such as:-
"Standby"
"xxxx hours"
"understood"
"affirmative"
"negative"

Its surprising how many people's spelling is so poor they don't know the
spellings for the NATO phonetic alphabet. Using something like "alpha
yankee figure seven" sometimes ends up as "AYF7"

I don’t think standard aviation communications would use “figure” in that
context, just “alpha yankee seven”.

I have heard plenty of vessels, of a range of nationalities, on Marine
VHF and never heard SETTESEVEN etc used (or used anywhere else).

The previous comment on using "FIGURE", I would have expected it to be
"FIGURES" rather like a teletype and probably only if there was going to
be a lot of figures.

Totally agree - and I served some 28 years as a deck officer. But this
code is there in the case where there is no language compatability
between ships. These days that is very rare!

Aircraft flight numbers and registrations, US civil registrations at least,
often have up to 4 digits, and registrations potentially 5. After many
hours of watching VASaviation and other channels on YouTube I’ve never come
across anyone saying “figures”. Maybe 4 or 5 isn’t lots, or maybe everyone
understands enough context to know that digits are coming.

Probably more a military usage.

Common Military Prowords:
FIGURES: Used to signal that numbers will follow.

It is probably for when there are lots of number as in met reports.

I did wonder if the might end with "LETTERS" if on a Teletype but can't
see any indication of that.

I have used the phonetic alphabet for a long time if I need to spell out
a non-obvious word or give my postcode on the phone. Nowadays, a lot of
call handlers seem to understand and even welcome it, but you get the
odd one who thinks I'm taking the piss. I had one phone call where the
woman I was talking to used her own alphabet when she was confirming
something to me - and it was made up entirely of animal names: Anteater
Bear Cat Duck Elephant...
