Volunteer Fire Dept. Elections
Ooooooo NO! For some of us it's that dreaded time of year again. Firehouse elections!
Just curious as to how your volunteer fire department's by-laws, constitution and etc reads for the requirements for election to line officer.
Do you require the candidate to have met certain minimum training standards?
Must he or she have a specific number of years of service?
Do you require them to serve as a Lieutenant for a year or more prior to election as a Captain?
How many years does your Chief get elected for 1 - 2 - 3?
Any quirks or loopholes in the way your department handles elections that need fixing?
