Volunteer Dept SOPs/SOGs
It looks like (hopefully) I have got enough support amongst the other officers in our all volunteer dept to start down the road towards really defining some rules and regs and letting everyone know what is expected of them. At this time, realistically, we don't have any SOPs or SOGs to speak of. I am looking for any SOPs/SOGs that can be emailed to me, or a link to your dept's home page so I can view them so I can see what other depts have and get ideas for ours.
SOP's/SOG"s are a good way to keep everyone on the same page ( no pun intended ) and stops alot of questions and hear say.
Check your E-mail.
Take care and good luck.
