Sample Fire Department Firearms On-Duty Policy
General (Created: October 9, 2018; Reviewed: October 9, 2018)

This is a sample policy to serve as a template for a specific policy based on local needs.

There is debate on this issue, but the consensus of most municipal governments is to prohibit guns in the workplace except for commissioned law enforcement officers and similar employees with a need to go armed in the performance of their duties.
