    Here in Colorado, all Emergency Service personell are exempt from C.D.L. requirements.It is a good idea to have a C.D.L., but tough to require of volunteers. We are all volunteer so most of the members don't have a C.D.L. Our district has a rule stating that the most Qualified person will drive the rig. Our qualifications include a C.D.L at the top of the list.

    Our department is requiring us to get CDL's for the trucks that require it. In NH, we aren't required by the state to have one, but it's becoming a real gray area as far as insurance coverage is concerned. We are doing it more to make sure we don't have a problem with insurance in the future, more than it being required. The requirements will probably get tougher in the future- wouldn't be a bad idea to start planning for it now before it becomes a legal requirement.
