Questions about officers.
Ok first not sure if this is the right area to post so please move if necessary (I'm never sure were to post anything)
Ok s at my station we have our Chief, 2 Asst. Chiefs (1 Administrative and 1 Operational), 1 Fire Capt, 2 Fire Lts, 1 EMS Capt, and 2 EMS Lts
All of the above mentioned officers have the same basic powers and are all issued white 1010's with shields for their respective rank, EXCEPT the EMS officers. EMS officers have the same authority and handle their assigned tasks however they are A) not issued a white helmet (unless the person in the position is just EMS then they get a white 360 Rescue) and B) are basically treated like a joke and get 0 respect from anyone.
This has been an ongoing problem and I'd like to change that (I hopefully will be becoming one of the EMS Lts soon).
My Questions are:
How can I go about changing this without massively irking everyone?
Do you feel that EMS officers who are fire trained be issued a white 1010 with EMS officer's shield just like the other officers?
Any kind of feedback is helpful. Thank you.
