Probationary members are required to maintain an “active” status with the company.
These requirements include:
- Completing a bare minimum of one (1) weekly duty night of twelve (12) hours in length per week, amounting to a minimum forty-eight (48) hours per month. It is advised that probationary members complete more than one duty night per week in order to become “turned over” in a timely manner.
- Attend a minimum of four (4) company meetings. Attendance at a fire department class held on meeting night shall count as being present for that company meeting.
- Attend all drills as necessary for the turn-over process and for maintaining skills.
- Attend all three (3) of the following events: Fund Drive, Open House, and Spring Cleaning
Note: Probationary members are unable to vote at company meetings (though they are entitled to a voice on the floor) and cannot hold any line or executive/administrative office.
