Topics covered include NFPA and response-time standards, fire relief associations and fire department checkbooks, alcohol response policies, alcohol sales for fundraising, sexual harassment prevention, physical fitness testing, and mutual aid. The memo was developed by LMCIT with the Minnesota State Fire Department Association, Minnesota State Fire Chiefs Association, and the Minnesota Professional Fire Fighters Association.
