As a relatively recent (~3 years) volunteer firefighter and first responder in southern Georgia, I am now in charge of putting together some of the basic documents for our department. As a firm believer in not re-inventing the wheel, I am asking (i.e., begging) for copies of the following: 1. Charter -- our department is supposedly chartered by the city, but we have absolutely no documentation whatsoever. We also have no minutes from the city council which authorized us to exist. 2. SOPs -- obviously, SOPs from a major metropolis would not really be applicable to us, but any and all from smaller departments would be a great help. 3. Fire surveys and pre-plans-- we are going to start doing pre-planning and inspections, so any and all help would be awesome. 4. A list of required equipment on the fire apparatus. We just acquired a "new" apparatus, and of course, it has nothing on it. I have a copy of the ISO list, but was would like additional input as well. 5. Any other documentation which is required but we have no records of. I work as an inspector at a nuclear plant, so I am a stickler for the correct documentation (if it's not written, it didn't happen!). I am appalled at the current state of laxity, but we are in a catch-up mode.
