    ARTICLE ADDENDUM Things Are Not Standardized: You might do things differently in a new department, different state, or than how you run your own Lego department. Just because you do something a certain way doesn't mean it is the right or only way to do it.

    This is a very well written and brings up memories from my months as a probie, both career and volunteer. Witch is 9 years ago, and I'm feeling old. And extremely good tips for a starting emergency services member. Even for probies outside the US this could be a good guide on the basic do's and dont's. Keep up the good work brother!

    Yes, as J stated in the introduction manpower is a huge issue. Hence the way I numbered the positions, as you said the two man engine perform the functions of Driver, Officer, Nozzleman and Layout which are the first four listed roles here. The idea behind numbering them was just that, the most important duties have a higher number so in cases such as you the crew performs those actions numbered the highest.
