I would like to request what type of calls the Hydraulic Platform Goes To 

Reply 

A hydraulic platform will be sent to incidents when it is requested by the Incident Commander, or when, due to the nature of information received by Fire Control during an emergency call, they believe it would be beneficial to send it. 

It will also be sent to fires reported in tall buildings (5 storeys or more) that have cladding or any other fire safety concerns.
