    Default Apparatus Operator Log

    Anyone have a log-system, where the driver-oper logs their trip each time the rig moves? Anyone have a template I can "borrow"?

    None of the departments I've been with kept such a log. Although I don't have any specific templates for you to use (or else, I'd be happy to share them), I'm curious about the benefit that you'd find in keeping a log like this? Is it for accountability, fuel use, broken items...?

    I'm also assuming that the department has a fairly low call volume?

    Box,

    Yes, accountability, fuel, etc. - as well as aiding in driver training documentation (i.e. the operator documenting "end miles" when back in station).

    Fairly low volume in a combi department, with no assigned operators each day (it changes, depending on who wants to drive or who doesn't - not my choice).

    Ours is basic:

    In:......23456.....Date:...... ...7/8/13
    Out:....23450.....Incident:... .MVA
    Total:.........6.....Location: ....Main and East st.
    Driver:...J. Doe

    It is actually written in a steno pad and there isn't an actual form that we use. VFIS does have a nice form for free if you want to use theirs. It is set up to be filled out by driver, not necessarily by the apparatus. That is why we use the simple one and keep the pad in each unit.
