    PRESENTATION

    Standard Operating Procedures in the Fire Service
    by Curt Varone

    Policies and procedures have become increasingly important to fire departments in our complex, litigious society. Beyond helping to reduce liability, effective policies improve operations and enhance the safety and health of firefighters. They are the cornerstone of organizational learning, and have proven to be the best method for incorporating lessons learned into a fire department’s daily operations.

    Yet the lack of policies is repeatedly cited in NIOSH firefighter fatality reports as a contributing factor in firefighter fatalities. In addition the lack of policies figures prominently in many lawsuits holding fire department liable. This program addresses the role that policies and procedures play in the modern fire service, and the challenges fire departments face in developing and implementing them.


    Curt Varone has over 40 years of experience in the fire service, retiring in 2008 as a Deputy Assistant Chief with the Providence, RI, Fire Department. He is a practicing attorney licensed in both Rhode Island and Maine, and served as the Director of the Public Fire Protection Division at the NFPA. Curt has written two books, Legal Considerations for Fire and Emergency Services, and Fire Officer's Legal Handbook. He is a Contributing Editor for Firehouse Magazine and writes the Fire Law column. He remains active as a deputy chief with the Exeter (RI) Fire Department.
