I am on a department that has NO sop's or sog's. A few of us including some officers have tried to implement sop's but with little backing from the dept. chief. The chief as well as many members of our department think we are still in th 70's,80's ad 90's when it come to equipment and firefighting tactics. The sop's were shot down at a meeting by the chief because "we have never had them before why do we need them now" we get that little quote from about 14 of our 25 members all the time when us "younger guys" try to change something. any ideas on how to get our dept. to wake up and change this old school style before someone gets hurt or killed?
