MEMORANDUM #65

The Chief Officers of Los Santos Fire Department have decided to expand the Handbook section for '3. Protocols and Procedures' with a new addition: 3.11 Scope of Practice. The details can be found in following:

The term 'Scope of Practice' defines the range of roles, functions, responsibilities and activities which a department member is educated, competent and has the authority to perform. Members of certain divisions with exclusive certifications may have the priority to handle specific incidents regardless of on-scene ranking. The Los Santos Fire Department issues the following certifications:
(The Firefighting and Rescue Manual has been edited accordingly to reflect the implementation.)
RULES:
  • Division-specific certifications for Operations Bureau are revoked once/if members' involvement with their division is terminated.
  • Low-Angle Rope Rescue (LARRO), Structural Collapse and Machinery/Elevator rescue can be performed by all firefighters with USAR preferred to be present.
  • Specialized-rescue (Refer HERE) cannot be performed single-handedly. If understaffed, a consent from the USAR division leaders is required unless ESD cannot be reached out as final resort.
  • Members with advanced certifications (Paramedic/EMS) can take over medical scenes over EMT-certified higher-ranked members.
  • Failure of appropriately role-playing your certifications (i.e. lack of knowledge, powergaming) may result in a punishment.

    Regards,
    Battalion Chief Kurt Holland.
    On behalf of Los Santos Fire Department Chief Officers.
