We, also have been writing sogs. I would encourage you to look on volunteerfd.com, and also within your state for volunteer and career department websites. Some post the entire document there. I have been working on ours for over a year, and it can be exhausting. We didn't even have any bylaws that I could find, so that is where we started. We have had those in place now for a few months. That will make it easier to write and implemtent sogs. If you need more info let me know. What state are you in?
Thanks for the help we actually have bylaws they were enacted back in 1913 thats pretty much all we go by.
Thanks I will check them all out.
Wes, send me your email address or post it here and I'll send you some stuff...

Does your department have a Charter with the state? If so, you need to get a copy and update the charter as well
We are chartered just no sogs. Of course all the talk is to make sogs not sops we dont have either.
You have a rather LONG and daunting job ahead of you. Start with all the things you can think of and get them typed up and intorduced before the body ASAP. In the event of a major injury or a LODDD, your department must provide the SOG/SOP's to the feds.
take a look at Winter park Fire Department's web site. They have some great downloadable SOP SOG EOG what ever you want to call them.
Heres my email firemarshal134@yahoo.com
Whats the web site?
Try the TRADE network from the National Fire Academy.

There's some great resources here. I'm sure you'll find more than what you're looking for.


Good luck.

Stay safe. Train often.
