    Default Riding positions for MVC's

    Is there any fire departments out there that have SOG's for riding positions for car wrecks? My department has them for structure fires. Any feed is welcomed.

    EMTs get preferance on the Rescue. Other than that we fill out the engine company and/or the rest of the rescue as usual.
