WHO IS A ACTIVE MEMBER?????
Help needed…. What is an active member? My department is re-righting our by-laws and currently an active member is anyone who pays $1 per year and wants to stay on the department. There are no training requirements in the SOP that say you must attend a percentage of trainings to be considered “active”. For example a former chief of the department who for some reason has not been at a training for year’s shows up for the “big one” drives one of the tankers and causes $1,600 damage to the transmission. That was the last call he made with the dept. and 16-months later he is still called an active member with full voting rights. My question is what determines an active member on your FD, do you have the status of honorary member? What can they do? I guess my big problem is a 35 year member that has not made an emergency call for 6-8 years and only a handful of meeting can still vote on the officers in Dec. Any help would be great. :)
