A crew manager is a job role within the United Kingdom fire brigade. According to London-Fire's website, a crew manager is in charge of the crew of a fire appliance at many stations, and carries out day-to-day firefighting and fire safety work.
According to North Yorkshire Fire's website, a crew manager must inform and educate the community on safety. He must contribute to fire safety solutions to minimise risk to the public. A crew manager must take responsibility for effective performance, including supporting the development of individuals and teams in the fire service. A crew manager must lead and support people during operational incidents, and investigate and report on events to educate future practice.
According to Connexions-Direct, specific roles of a crew manager include giving talks to the community on fire safety -- including children. A crew manager also has to inspect homes and businesses to make sure they meet safety requirements, as well as advise organisations such as hospitals and schools on fire safety.
Connections-Direct's website also states that a crew manager will have to respond to emergency incidents by putting out fires and rescuing both people and animals. He may have to provide casualty care, attend life-threatening medical emergencies, rescue people amid disasters such as floods, deal with chemical spills, and respond to bomb alerts.
