90 Degree rules for FD non-essential operations
Does anyone out there have a written SOP in regard to non-essential operations (fire inspections, outside training/drills,)when the outside temperature is over 90 degrees F? I do know that FDNY and Yonkers, NY have a policy in place but do not have any of the documentation. Any help is welcome

WE HAVE WHAT IS CALLED CONDITION RED. ALL NON-ESSENTAIL OUT DOOR ACTIVITIES ARE canceled. no grass cutting,drills. only the first due engine puts there turn out gear on unless it is an obvious working fire.
UNION AND PROUD OF IT!

I posted a responce to a similar question in the safety bulletin board check it out. If you need a copy of the written policy I can mail it to you.

The guideline to cease outdoor, non-airconditioned spaces optional work/training should be determined by a specific heat index, not temperature. 90 degrees in AZ at 20% humidity does not have the effect on the body that 90 degrees at 90% humidity in FL. has on the body.
