    I don't know about the apparatus....but since I am a driver I might want to find out. I suppose it depends on the conditions of the accident. If it is not your fault....how could there be any sort of disciplinary action?

    As for POV.....I'd never admit I was running a response....and would not report it to the chief for official purposes most likely unless there were injuries......my insurance does not cover me when responding....so I don't run lights on my POV either. Luckily I am only about 3 miles from the station where I grab the engine and go.............

    Default Accident Policy

    My Department has the following policy for Deparment apparatus:

    If you are involved in any accident no matter how small or if it is your fault you must take a **** test. No Exceptions.

    The Board of Fire Command then reviews all accidents and decides on the punishment which can range any where from no action, written warning, Driving suspension of company apparatus, lifetime ban on driving.
