Personnel Records Verification

2017 RECORD VERIFICATION PROCESS

What records will be verified this year for the 2016 VIPR Agreements

· Engine Personnel

· Fallers

Note: On Fallers we are NOT verifying level of faller qualification, only verifying that they have had the Basic Firefighter Course and if appropriate the RT130 this year if the Basic Firefighter Course was taken in a previous year, and that they have a current pack test for the year.

Please check the following before you send your records in for review:

1. Please be sure all the training is entered into the database, i.e. IS-700 and IS-100 certs.

2. Please be sure the qualification date for FFT2/FALLER is the last day of the FFT2 class.  The qualification date for FFT1 and ENGB is the date the taskbook is signed off.

3. Please don’t make your cards until you have the correct qualification date in the training record.  The only qualifications that I am verifying is FFT2, FFT1, ENGB and FALLER.  You can put TRN-FFT1 and TRN-ENGB qualifications on your cards if appropriate.

4. The expiration date for the qualification is 5 years from the qualification date.

5. If you are moving a FFT2 from yellow to red please send one shift ticket to prove their experience.

6. Faller cards should be yellow.  The dot measures the firefighters experience, not the fallers.

7. For returning firefighters please only send pack test and RT130 cert IF NOT A WCFA CLASS.

8. For promoting firefighters please send complete taskbook, shift tickets that support the taskbook, and training certs IF NOT A WCFA CLASS.

9. For new FFT2 please remember to send their driver’s license with other items needed for FFT2.

10. Send a payment with your submissions so I can complete the record review and not have to go back in when I get the payment or ask for the payment.

11. BE SURE YOU HAVE SUBMITTED YOUR RECORDS FOR REVIEW. (If you have red X’s by some of the training you had verified last year it’s because you may not have had the actual certificate so I didn’t verify it, I just verified the position.)
