E-mail Print PDF

Usually the Retired Senior Volunteers (RSVP) will receive a message from me about the documentation of Volunteers Hours. This month and in the future months ALL volunteers, not just our valued RSVP volunteers will need to report all your volunteer hours.  You strengthen the PEMA program with your service to the Palatine Community.  Tom does have sign in sheets at various trainings and events.  But there has not been any form of documentation of the collected hours besides him adding them up at the end of the year.  You ask the reason why???

EMA Clothing Wear

E-mail Print PDF

Just a quick reminder that you should only be wearing your EMA bright yellow or team vets and jackets when you are working a special event or a real incident. If you need to go into a restaurant or other similar business, please leave the equipment in your vehicle. The reason for this is that the public may misconstrue that you are attempting to garner special favors because of who you are and who you are associated with. I doubt that this is a real problem, but people's perceptions are a reality. I can speak from experience that this was the case when I was a police officer. We are a great group with a solid reputation and I don't want someone unfamiliar with us making disparaging misguided accusations.
 
Thanks for Your Understanding,
Tom Smith
