    Default IACOJ chain of command

    Has anyone put together a chain of command for the IACOJ?

    It might help to smooth things out, and better increase the flow of information, etc, etc, if everyone knows where they are in the grand scheme of things.

    I was just wondering.

    CaptStanm1 is the Minister of Southern Comfort
    Adze is Ventilation and the Assistant Special Agent in charge of Forum
    Investigations.
    Superchef is the Head Chef
    JTL is the Secretary
    Tanker5117 is the Grill Chef
    Pres41 has the Pump Panel
    hfd66truck has the SCBA
    Tailboard_Jockey has the ....Tailboard (I would have never guessed)
    ggtruckie is the Roofman
    RSchmidt is the House Rookie
    oldE6man has the Ceiling and Shepard Hooks
    PuffyNPFD has the Hook and Can and is on the Board of Directors
    Aff has the Pipe
    rescue2bob has the Irons

    ohiovol_ff has the Hack Saw and Porta-Power
    firecat1524 is the Story Teller
    D Kelly the Hoseman
    truckman38 has the Plug

    firefighter 26 is in charge of the Combie Tool (and Parties)
    Drewbo has the Cellar Nozzle
    Rescue21 is one of the Drivers
    truckie10 has the Roof Hook
    and I and many others are just looking for our place, and ready to back up anyone.

    Many people keep questioning if they are in.

    Aside from the above list, who else is in?

    AFD, don't mean to be a pain but can you bold the names so they stand out better? Thanks.

    Default Chain of Command

    I go back to work tomorrow after 2 weeks off, but will add the ones listed above and then research all names I can find. I'll work on it tomorrow evening. This must make me in charge of Research and Development.

    Why don't we do Litres per Second VS Kilopascals... Of course, we might need a cross-reference chart for everyone else....

    AFD368....needs to be re-organized as an organizational chart....one of them ICS THINGS

    You know..start at the top and work downward towards the "worker bees."

    And since you are taking on this task voluntarily (no doubt in an effort to be appointed the the position ) might as well email us all a printable version.... Oh yea....could you include our state of residence....or country of course?

    Default Are recruiters necessary?

    This is such an esteemed group that recruiting really isnt necessary. They are pounding on the door trying to get in. How about a membership committee to recommend membership. If denied, maybe the candidate can enter the academy and apply at a later date.
