In Ireland we dont have ride alongs.

But i would be interested to propose such a feature in our fire dept, not cos i enjoy baby sitting john Q citizen, but there are certain public relations issues in some areas of my city (the poorer areas) i reckon it cant hurt

But, can someone tell me how it really works, i presume there is a list of rules , can anyone provide me with a copy ?

also what about insurance ? does the ride-alonger sign some waiver??
