    Question IAFF and Mutual Aid

    I have heard that there are IAFF Firehouses that cannot accept or provide mutual aid with a non-union department.

    Is this true?

    Thanks

    I think that is a juristictional matter outside the IAFF's control.

    Default No!

    My city is 100% paid IAFF local and 90% of our aid comes from volly departments that boarder us. Who ever told that is not in the real world, most of the aid renderd to paid departments, with exception of large metro areas comes from volly or combo departments. Has for union vs. non union ...yeah I would like the union department, but they better be trained.

    In my neck of the woods the career departments call only other career departments. Even if its 3 times farther away. I don't know if this is a union thing or a contract thing but I know they never call the volley's.
    All opinions are my own and have nothing to do with any agencies i belong to.

    Check out my departments website - [url="www.schuylerheights.com"[/url]

    Most likey an internal department issue, not likely to be a union vs. volunteer one.
