TOS: Temporarily Out of Service.
1-100 (IDENTIFY FIREFIGHTER______ THEN STATE POV UNIT ______).
We use POVS due to the distance of the area and the remote distance of the fire department station.
We may have personnel that may live closer to a scene and can provide a size up or resources needed and we must render aide and assistance as fast as we can and POV (Personal Own Vehicle) is the fastest way of providing that service in remote rural areas.
However POV is highly discouraged as it is inevitably hazardous and dangerous and may contain a high financial expense on personal insurance and other liabilities of making sure your vehicle meets all NFPA, Federal, State, and County safety standards and emergency vehicle laws.
Not to mention driver must be fully trained and a senior member or officer of the department and this makes it hard to be selected to participate in our POV response Units.
You must also be an officer in order to use full authority of the vehicle so not all members have this authority unless a disaster presents itself.
For more information and Guidelines on POV's or to report abuse please contact the station at 505-426-5271 to file a complaint or inquire Status of a POV user.
