    Default SOGs/SOPs

    I am looking for an example of some SOPs or SOGs for a volunteer or mixed department. I am specifically interested in initial apparatus and tool assignments for a department that generally does not allow scene response in POVs.

    Take a look at our web site. There is a section with our SOGs in it.

    The Federal Emergency Managment Agency has a publication entitled ,

    "Developing Effective Standard Operating Procedures for fire and Ems Departments." The copy I have was published in December of 1999.

    It's a great tool for developing your own SOP's.

    Be careful taking someone elses SOP's and just copying them. You should bear in mind that SOP's must be tailored for each dept's individual response capabilities. You might not have the same abilities as another dept.

    Good luck.

    SOGs/SOPs are great and every department, vollie or paid should cover them in a rulebook.

    some of the things to cover
    Rules for newbies
    Rules
    Operation SOGs
    driving regs
    CE requirements

    and on
    and on
