    Angry I-300

    OK - someone please explain what Executive Order 50 is mandating...

    Here's the scenario: No line officers are around for a call - only blackhats. Does the person who gets in the officer's seat have to have I-300, or is I-200 good enough?? Please be specific if you can.

    Thanks

    Halligan,

    I had the order - it doesn't provide a specific answer to this common scenario in volunteer departments. I was curious as to how other companies are addressing this.

    It looks like you need I-200 by the end of this year for company officers and entry level positions. Since the state already requires I-200 and FF1 for officers, shouldn't be too much of an issue to provide to all of your firefighters. I-300 is still for higher levels of management by my interpretation.

    Halligan I agree with you. The way I read it all officers need I 200 now. Mid level officers will need 300 by the end of this year and any one who is CHIEF will need 400 by 2007.

    (d) all command and general staff
    This line here makes me interpret this any command officer, which may be a Chief or may be a Lt when no Chief is around.

    Then again, I asked someone from the Division of F@cked up Sh@t (DFS) and they had absolutely no clue. Imagine that.


    Now, in that order, it says they will work to provide the training, not that they will require it. Is that somewhere else?

    The division usually has to make the rules and implement the programs that are mandated by the legislative or executive branch. It looks like it was approved last year, so we should see something about 3 months before we are required to have it!
