Your Fire Department. Organization--Recruitment--Equipment--Training. Revised.
Pribyl, Paul F.
This publication is intended as a guide in the organization, staffing, equipping, and training of fire departments in Wisconsin. A separate section focuses on each of these four areas. The first section discusses an ordinance to create a fire department, qualifications and authority of the fire chief, and an outline of duties and responsibilities of each position in the organization. Recruitment and selection of personnel is the focus of section 2. Section 3 makes recommendations to assist communities and fire departments in the equipping of their apparatus. Recommendations pertain to pumping engines, basic and optional equipment carried on pumpers, basic and optional equipment carried on mobile water-supply apparatus (tankers), equipment carried on ladder trucks, special equipment carried on salvage trucks, and personal protective clothing. Section 4 describes the Wisconsin Fire Service Training Program including courses taught, training locations, and available training materials and sources. An appendix recommends materials for a fire department training library. (YLB)
