    We restrict school nights to no calls after 22:00. Any other time is fair game.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    For EMS, I know we limit it to 23:00, but I'm not sure about fire calls. Personally, the last thing I want to be concerned about is a 16 year old traveling across town at 2am all jacked because of a rocking structure fire or big MVC, and have him not show up because of driving off the road somewhere. I mean no offense to our juniors here, but the main reason for kids crashing is lack of experience. I think overnight responses need to be planned out very well in terms of explorers or juniors.

    our department doesn't have a set cut-off. The only curfews are imposed by the parent's of the junior.

    For 16-17 year olds during school days its 6am-12pm we can run calls.
    On weekends and scheduled off school days we can run calls 6am-1am

    For 14-15 year olds during school days its 7am-10pm we can run calls.
    Its the same on weekends and scheduled off school days.

    This is not my departments rules it the rules of PA, If it was up to my department (atleast what they tell me) they would let us run all around the clock.

    We donít go on calls but on meeting nights, they try to get us out by 21:30.

    Iím not sure if this applies to all states quite yet but hereís a suggestion. Set the curfew so it leaves plenty of room for those with restrictive graduated licenses to get home during legal driving time. Again, Iím not quite sure how it works in other states, but itís just an idea.

    In my state you can't drive past 11 at night. If you have a note from your employer or chief of a volunteer organization (as the law states) you can drive after the rescricted time if you are going to or comming from them two options. I think its a good rule because there are many times where I have driven to a fire call around 12 and have had a note in my glove box incase I would get pulled over.

    my departments rules on curfew are we cant respond to calls that happen after midnight unless its a working structure fire. and can be there until the fire is undercontrol our there is enough other firefighters. these requirements go for only school nights. other wise its free game. and we can be released from school for big structure fires and forest fires.

    whats up with your mvc policies?
    do u go to the scene?

    cuz my dept. says we can only go to the station for rescues.
    and we dont do ambulance we got a seperate ambulance corp.
    although we do respond for there lifting assistance calls or if they need emt's that are not in the ambulance corp.

    We got one too. Ours is if you are under 17 yrs. of age you CANNOT for any reason respond back for a fire after 23:00 on weekends and 20:00 on weekdays. 17 yrs. or older you can respond back on weekends at any time and on school night nothing past 22:00 hrs. If your older than 18 or out of high school you can respond at any time, just as long as it doesn't affect college,work, etc.

    "whats up with your mvc policies?

    we get to go to any call we get as long as it is in curfew. we run on all fires, vehicle accidents, and medical calls. we are allowed to ride the responding appuratus to the scene or even go pv. the only major rules we have is curfew and the "Hot Zone" rules.

    The reason we have ours in place is because in our town if your pulled over on the way to the station legally after curfew sets in anyone under the age of 17 is considered to not have a license and because we don't need the coppers asking why a 14 or 15 year old was riding his/her bikle down to the station after curfew. That is why we don't allow it. For the ride time thing we can ride any time between 08:00-08:00 on weekends and 1500 to 20:00 on weekdays(unless 18 yrs. of and out of high school, then it is fair game). Over nights are reserved for 18 and older. We are allowed to respond to the scene in our personal vehicle only after going to station 1 and picking up rehab supplies. We can ride any apparatus as lond as there is an open seat.

    Year around Sunday - Thursday 2200 hrs. Friday and Saturday until Midnight. I'd like to get rid of the midnight and leave it open and get rid of it all together when school is out for breaks and summer.

    Junior firefighers ages 16 and 17 shall adhere to the following hours of service:

    During School Term:
    No activity while school is in session
    No activity between 12AM and 6AM
    No activity between 1AM and 6AM on weekends and holidays
    During Summer Vacation:
    No restrictions.

    16 and 17 year olds who answer alarms before the midnight or 1AM deadline may continue to operate on that incident past the deadline, but may not answer any additional alarms that come in past the deadline.
    Any statements I have made are my statements, and my statements alone.
