    Default making calls

    What are the rules your dept. has about juniors or explorers making runs.
    On my dept juniors can make runs as long as there is a place for them on the engine or rescue. Only the older juniors and the ones who know where equipment is can go on car wrecks.

    all volunteer dept, Juniors can ride in a truck if space is available. If not Juniors can go to the scene POV but not before a Firefighter is on scene.

    my juniors are restricted in their respose to calls during certain hours (school day / non-school day), and must respond only to the f/h for all alarms our company responds to. They aren't allowed to ride any truck on an initial response. They can go to the scene w/ another advisor in his POV, or in a unit designated to bring them to the scene of actual fires only.

    mainly the reason for this is liability and insurance costs.

    We can only respond to mainly fire calls, with some exceptions. If there is a call that I can not respond to, I sometimes head to the station and get all the cleaning supplies ready to wash the rigs when they return.

    I try to help in anyway I can, whether it is onscene at a call or maintenance at the hall.

    in my dept. Explorers can respond to calls just not on our trucks, however juniors can. all explorers and juniors at any callmust report to a lieutenant or captain from their respective company. our explorers cant go into any burning structure except for drills, where our juniors can.
