    Post Need some new SOP/SOG's

    I've just been tasked with re-writing our dispatch center's SOP. Our current SOP is so outdated and confusing (since we have upgraded so much since then) it's amusing. Can anyone help me out with places to find examples, ideas, etc. I'd appreciate any help you could give me. Thanks!

    savair, I definitely would not recommend re-inventing the wheel. Alot of your existing SOP's regardless of how old they are can probably be re-worded to identify any technological and procedural updates, etc...

    I would also contact surrounding Comm centers and ask for copies of their SOP's. You can use those as guidlines in creating/updating your own.

    Also visit http://www.911dispatch.com/db/index.php as it has excellent resources.
    Someone once told me that time is a predator that stalks us all our lives. But maybe time is also a companion who goes with us on our journey, and reminds us to cherish the moments of our lives because they will never come again.

    Thanks, to both of you. I did just end up re-wording and updated the old ones. You were right MrJim, the wheel was there it just needed new tires. Our Deputy Chief seems pleased with the final product.
