    I am looking researching to see if there is a need for Firefighter and Paramedic self defense training.  Per current department policy we do not authorize firearms while on duty, and there are no plans to change that.  I am asking for sample Policies, SOG's, and training programs.  I am also interested if any department has had their policy tested by litigation, either civil or criminal.  Any guidance would be appreciated.

    Good Afternoon,

    Our department is in the middle of building a new department website. CRR will have a bigger role on this new site and I'm building from scratch. I wanted to reach out to see if you know of, or have a great CRR page you'd like to share. I'll be including our Home Safety Survey, Smoke Alarm Blitz, Car Seat Inspections,  School Programs, CERT, etc.  Thank you in advance.
