Myself and several other members of local departments are currently working on a set of standing orders for apparatus responses. I am looking for input and maybe different things that others do. This project is being done in cooperation with the Southern Regional Chiefs. This group is formed of several fire companies that operate with each other on a daily basis. A little back ground on the communities is they are a mix of commercial, residential with some of the communities having some multifamily apartment complexes and townhomes. Two of the communities are made up of farms and homes that sit well off the roadway. The area is also a mix of hydranted and nonhydranted areas. I hope this information helps.
