Chief, we do and I can sum it up rather quickly for you..... Apparatus and personnel shall remain in-house unless a staging area is deemed necessary by the OIC. Any/All staging areas utilized during civil unrest within the township must allow the apparatus to have 2 ways out should that area become hostile. Secondly, apparatus and personnel will not be deployed in to a hostile or unstable area if the safety of fire personnel is questionable. If the unrest targets a fire station, the apparatus and FF from that station are to be relocated.



didn't see this

we already instituted one -- very similar

stay safe
