    Default Operational Guidelines for JRs

    Here is my problem.

    I need to have a basic set of operational guidelines and regulations in place for my department ASAP, with a little luck, by the end of the week. I will not have a problem getting them passed by the chief, he asked me to get them together for him. So, do any of you have your regulations and/or guidelines online anywhere?

    Thanks.

    I think if you organize a good standard of operation, everyone can be happy. and the number one no-item would be; blue lights. In the state of PA any person under 18 can loose their licence for opertaing a blue flashing/rotating light; or an audible device. When I was a junior I memorized the laws, and the child labor section on Junior firefighters, explores, forest fire crews, and ambulance squads. I suggest you make your members review the federal child labor laws concerning these issues. Discuss it with them to make sure they understand why it is important that these laws are in place.

    Thanks for all the help, I finally got a set of operational guidelines in service, complete with permission forms.

    However, because this is our first attempt, the chief wanted to limit applicates to the 17-18 year range for the first 6 months or so, then expand down to 16 or so. I see where he is comming from, have some older "jr" firefighters recieve training, then make them jr captains and get them to help out with the "younger jrs."
