Thanks for your interest in the Flint Hill FD Operations Manual. This manual contains the rules, regulations, processes, procedures, etc. used by the department to conduct operations.  It is divided in 5 main sections: Guiding Principles, Bylaws, General Policies, Memos and SOG/SOPs. Subsections are provided to aid the reader in finding specific topics or documents.

If a link on this page is disabled it means the particular document has not been written yet. The manual is constantly undergoing updates. FHFD members are notified of changes to the manual before they are published. Currently there is no mechanism in place to indicate which documents on this website have changed or when they changed. Only current versions are published here.

Due to the sensitive nature of some memos none of them are not published online. Department members can view memos in the printed version of the Operations Manual maintained at Station 1.

This manual is not copyrighted. We benefited from the prior work of others in developing this manual and wish to make our body of work available with the hope we contribute something useful as well.  We appreciate feedback so if you really like something or see something that could be improved please let us know at information@flinthillfire.org.
