Incident Reporting and Message Transmission

The procedures and forms in this section represent the systematisation of the transmission of messages, from incident occurring, to being accurately recorded and report being transmitted, action being decided upon, and rescue agencies being alerted.

The diagram on page 3 of "Report Centre Procedure" illustrates (in those early days of telephony) the separate telephones for In/Out/Direct lines. Also note the fact that many messages were passed by messenger running from place to place, especially because telephone communication was often disrupted.
