My department is looking at putting together a policy and procedure on how to page volunteer fire and EMS. I am checking to see what other departments have for SOG's or SOP's. Some of the questions I'd like to know about are:
How long before you send out 2nd and subsequent pages when departments that are paged donít respond.
When to page another department when the department you paged does not respond after multiple pages.
Do you page (automatic mutual aid) a full time staffed fire department to respond or a volunteer department next to district when the department you have paged does not respond.
How long before a A.L.S ambulances (staffed) are paged out when (non-staffed) B.L.S ambulance does not respond to page in their district.
Any and all information and or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
