    Default Driver / Operator Job Description

    Does anyone have a good job or position description for pumper Driver / Operator? I've been asked to come up w/ one and figured that with all the years of experience on this forum asking is easier than trying to reinvent the wheel.

    TIA,
    Mike

    You're going to get alot of different answers to your question. Depending on the area that you're in, some will be recognized and accepted, and others, not so well.

    We call ours FAE's, Fire Apparatus Engineers. They drive the rigs, and operate them on scene. This goes for both the pumpers and the aerials. Since they are "working" FF's, they do not get a rank associated with it, such as Sgt, as some do.

    Good luck with your "name calling".

    FIREMECH1 is correct that you will receive many opinions on what is the FEO's job.
