    Default legal questions

    Ok everyone I am looking for some legal information pertaining to Fire Departments.
    My volunteer dept is in the process of updating our bylaws. Where can I find or does anyone know the legalities of age for members, mainly 18 or 21 for age restrictions? Also, is there a law or something like for elections of new members and elections for ending probationary status? I thought I have heard that it is illegal to have members vote to keep or to get rid of probationary members. Any help would be great Thanks

    911 N. Sycamore St. Yep, that's really our address.


    If your District is a member if the Illinois Association of Fire Protection Districts, you can get free general advice from the Assoc.'s lawyer, Jim Sinclair. If you can't find the number, shoot me a PM and I'll get it to you.
