Policy and Procedure Manual

Policies and Procedures are necessary for the effective management of a fire service organization. For individual firefighters, Policies and Procedures reflect both every day rules as well as address the most efficient and effective way to handle exceptional circumstances. Policies and Procedures ensure that all members are ‘reading from the same page’, and they are designed to safeguard against inconsistencies.
