    If dark, turn on the lights.

    If cylinders are empty, fill them.

    Seriously, it is as simple as training personnel to operate it and only allowing them to respond with it. While it may take time , in the long run, it will be worth the effort.

    Unless you are trained on the unit, you are not permitted to operate the vehicle. If you violate this policy, you can be suspended and held accountable for any damage or any missing equipment.

    Dido, while we do not have a policy we do only let the people that are actually trained in the use of the unit to operate or tranport it anywhere.

    We don't have one. Several neighbors have rescues (squads) with cascades and we use them for refills. Generally people tend not to want to deal with the cascade unless they know what's going on with it. That's not to say that there hasn't been the occasional problem with somebody equalizing one of them.

    Most rescues have scene lighting equipment.

    One department in the county has an air support trailer, with a compressor and cascade, but we haven't had a situation that required them to wander over our way.

    All done!
    Well said. Our Air Lights are assigned to houses which have the large cascade systems. Members there are all good to go on filling and driving the truck and operating it.


    Once on the scene they open the doors and begin to exchange cylinders. If is cold they start a large urn of coffee. Hot weather they break out the cold liquids.

    Does anyone have any operating guidelines or policies concerning their air & light trucks that they could share? We do not have any and are runnning into problems with staffing, specifically untrained personnel being assigned to the vehicle which is leading to mechanical issues with the vehicle and equipment coming up missing.

    Any info you could share is greatly appreciated.
