    Question Drug Testing?

    I'm curious...
    Is there any legal standing in regards to reguiring volunteer members to be tested for illegal drug use?
    Does your company have any policy in regards to such?

    Don't know if legal requirement or not but our membership is required to go through a drug and alcohal test during annual physicals and also through the preemployment physical. Our SOP's also state if involved in an accident or injured on duty testing is also done at that time. Yes we are volunteer but we feel it is safest for ourselves and the people we protect.
