Commonly used abbreviations

Due to the 140 character limitation on twitter, I'm sometimes forced to use abbreviations in order to get the necessary information out there. Here's a quick guide to the most common ones:

CMD: "Command", the guy running the show
Hazmat: "Hazardous materials"
K9: Police dog
k/d: "knocked down", refers to the condition of the fire
LSO: "Lines stretched & operating", the number of hoses the FD has putting water on the fire.
MSP: Massachusetts State Police
MVA: Motor vehicle accident
OIC: Officer In Charge
u/c: "under control"
u/d: used to signify an update, means there is more information in a previous tweet.

If I think of anything else, I'll add it to the list.
