Question Description

Unit VII Essay

Standard Operating Guideline Paper 

Background Information: You have just been promoted to the rank of lieutenant (or bureau manager if serving in the private sector) and have been appointed to the Fire Prevention Bureau/Office as the new supervisor/leader. Your predecessor held the position for many years and had his or her own way of keeping, storing, and maintaining fire prevention records. You soon discover that records are in total disarray and very few records are properly stored, nor have the volumes of the records been properly maintained and protected from the environment in which they were stored. FIR 3303, Introduction to Fire Prevention 9 

You have a bureau crew of four other employees who have had little involvement in the handling of records and you plan to change that. 

Task: The purpose of this essay is for you to apply the concepts and information you have learned in this unit about the position of a Fire Prevention Officer/Manager. This assignment provides you with the opportunity to use your skills, expertise, and experience to enrich your response when compiling data that will be used for risk reduction within the community. You will compose a standard operating guideline (SOG) that should address the following components: 

? provide an introduction into what this SOP is designed to accomplish along with the Mission Statement for this Division. 

? proper recording of bureau/office inspections, incidents, testing, re-testing, and re-inspections; 

? proper storage of all records gathered by the bureau/office; and 

? proper maintenance of all stored records for the required amount of time as set-forth by local, state, and/or federal rules and regulations. 

You should be clear, concise, and ensure that the SOG addresses each of the three bulleted components given above. The final SOG packet must contain a minimum of one full page for each of the three components listed above; no component can have more than two full pages of text. 

Keep in mind that your SOG narratives must be straight-to-the-point. Avoid long rambling narrations as these tend to distract attention and often lead to confusion and misunderstanding of purpose and functionality. 

Remember, you are the head of this newly formed bureau and you want to impress your leadership with your knowledge, academic ability, and occupational experience. Be innovative and creative; however, be sure to utilize a variety of sources that must include your textbook. Your final paper will become your SOG to be used and referred to in your day-to-day operations.

1.0 Introduction and Statement of Policy
Fire prevention and fire fighting usually involve a practical process where a lot of
focus is put into understanding and mastery of fire equipment in order to reduce occurrences
and casualties in cases of fire breakouts (Chien & Wu, 2008). As such, there have been
several standard operating guidelines (SOG) that have been set up by different fire
departments; some have been effective while others not so much. While setting up these
standard operating guidelines, the fire department officials should be careful and get legal
counsel so that their customized standard operating guidelines are not in conflict with those
set up by the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA). The mission of this fire
department division is to provide an assurance of safety in the state, reduction of casualties
and minimize the loss of property during fire incidents. We endeavour to use our professional
know-how and resources in this sector in order to improve our services and make sure that we
achieve our goals. This mission will be accomplished through the suppression of fire
incidences by quick rescue, education of the masses, and enforcement of codes as well as
refresher practical training courses. Our core values at this fire department include
professionalism and responsibility, teamwork, health, and safety in order to fulfil our duties
with respect and compassion to the full capacity.
