How'd do folks!Can someone please share with us how you guys work with your administration people in your station.Do you share the same station or do they have a separate building?Are firefighters doin' admin work also or civilians doing it for you and is it wise for us to be in the same building?
We share the station here at HQ, in Suva, Fiji with our admin staff and most of the time we have conflict of ideas relating to operations and it's quite frustrating at times.
I run at volunteer station. Our adminstrators (president, v.p., treasurer, secretary, and 2 directors) are also ff/emt or auxillary members. We are in the same building but they have their own locked office and locked file room. They have a monthly board meeting and then they bring all ideas for fundraising and the spending of money (over a certain amount) in front of the general membership. Our day to day running of trucks and equipment are left to the EMS and Fire line officers.
