Drill #123: Standards/Regulations
There is one thing we all know and that is the fire service is inundated with standards and regulations. But do we know where these standards and regulations come from? Let's take a look at some of the organizations that are trying to keep firefighters safe.
The drill is designed to be a single page of information to conjure up discussions among your crew members. Sit down and talk about the exercises, and how they may apply to your company. But, just don't read them. Get moving. Head to an appropriate area and train.
Post the information in prominent places in your stations so it's readily available for review.
Please remember to check your Standard Operating Procedures or Guidelines (SOPs/SOGs) before using the drill.
