I am a captain of a reserve unit (20 members) that supports two paid departments. A city dept. with a pop. of 300,000 within a county dept that supports another 150,000 residents. I am looking for other depts to discuss ideas with that work under simular conditions. Ideas such as dept structure, training, funding, types of calls, how and when you're requested to assist, protocols for response without request, etc.
