Does your department have a written policy regarding firefighters taking photos at an MVA or fire scene with private camera phones? Have you had problems with the posting of such photos on social networking websites?

The way I see it, if you have time to take pics/videos then you are not doing your job. There is always something that needs to be done. Also what happens if the public see you doing that, is that another notch against our public relations? Plus, why would you want to take your phone on scene, I cant afford a new phone because I dropped it, got it wet etc.

our policy is you may take pictures at fire scenes,and accident scenes, only after everyone is involved is removed or at a house fires we are just doing overhaul if caught not following policy immediately fired.

we have guys that like to take photos but been lucky so far that none of them have soon up on the net, so to stay save we enacted a policy that says no pictures of any scene (MVC, house Fires, Etc.) so far the guys have responded to it pretty good.
