Pavan Chandail- Unit 13 Assignment 1
Rank Structure
The rank structure system forms the main backbone of many if not all armed forces. The main purpose of it is to define a soldier or officer's role and responsibility. However, the rank system between soldiers and officers differs ever so slightly. Officers have more leadership duties, where as soldiers receive orders to carry out. Many officers are in fact soldiers before transferring to the role of an officer.

Chain of Command
In more or less every Public Service, there is a chain of command. A chain of command is often used within a civil or military organization, and is basically the act of instructions being passed down. Below, is the chain of command for the Fire Service, along with the uniform the person of that role wears, in descending order.

Fire Fighter
- On response to 999 calls. They carry out general duties from fire fighting to general safety work. Their uniform consists of the standard brown high visibility fire resistant overalls along with a yellow helmet with no markings.
(The Fire Brigade mark their ranks on their helmets rather than shoulder pins or badges)

Leading Firefighter
- In charge of a Fire Fighter crew at the station. Is also in charge of equipment and if needed, can assignment up to 3 Fire Crews to one incident. Also has the same responsibility as a Fire Fighter. Their uniform is exactly the same as a normal Fire Fighter's, except their helmet consists of on 12.5mm black band etched on the left hand side of the helmet.
(For most of the ranks in the Fire Brigade, they are shown via the etchings on their helmet, and color)

Station Officer
- Has the responsibility of watching over a maximum of 2 large fire stations. Is also involved with standard fire fighting, and also promotes fire safety to children and young adults. If needed, a Station Officer can assign up to 6 Fire Crews to one incident. Their uniform is the same as both Fire Fighter and Leading Firefighters, except instead of wearing a yellow helmet, they wear a white helmet with a single 12.5 mm black band on the left hand side of the helmet.

Divisional Officer
- Responsible for a set of fire station across a certain area, for example, Birmingham. A Divisional Officer is also liable to take charge of a situation where 9 or more Fire Crews are needed, and is also on hand to provide specialist support to tricky situations, mainly road accidents where part of a car has been crushed to can pose to be an explosive hazard. Their uniform is the same as all the above, except their helmet has one 12.5mm black stripe, with a 19mm black stripe directly underneath on the left hand side.

Assistant Chief Fire Officer
- This entails the role of all the above with added responsibility. The area they are in charge of can be anything up to a whole county, such as Essex, London or Shropshire. They are only on call for incidents that require 10 or more Fire Crew's. For example, the Fire at Sony's warehouse in Enfield would have had a ACFO on hand to assist the operation. Their uniform is exactly the same as a Divisional Officers, except their helmet, still white in color, consists of two 19mm black bands, both on the left hand side of the helmet.

Chief Fire Officer
- In charge of all the Fire Crews of one county, such as West Midlands, East Anglia, Essex, London and so on and so fourth. They manage any incident where 12 or more Fire Crews are needed. They are only on call for incidents where is it that big of a fire. CFO's also authorize and manage fire crews across the UK, and is generally in charge of all Fire Fighters in his region. The fire uniform is only wore when needed as most of the time CFO's are in a suit with a shoulder pin. The shoulder pin looks like the image below. If they do end up going up to a fire, they helmet they wear is white and consists of one 38mm black band on the left hand side of the helmet.

The Importance of Chain of Command in a Public Service.
Within the public sector, chain of command or a rank structure is key as it influences discipline, and without discipline, any public service would simply collapse. People would not work to best of their ability's because they would have no superior to look up to and respect. Chain of command ensures that everybody does their job properly and to an immaculate standard. Make note that in many public services such as the Army and Police, it is a requirement that you respect your superior. Also, with a chain of command, a team knows what to do and who's in charge, meaning tasks can be completed quickly and efficiently, which proves to be much better than everybody asking who's in charge for such and such.
