The Cape Elizabeth Fire-Rescue Department (CEFRD), as well as the entire public safety community, prides itself on the ability to provide an exceptionally high level of service and care to our townspeople and visitors. In order to this goal, the CEFRD has established a collection a Standard Operation Guidelines (SOGs) to help foster efficient, safe, and timely services. As part of our mission, the department aims to keep this resource up to date for not only its employees, but the public as well. We feel that it is important to be transparent with our community, but at the same time believe this resource should be shared with other departments/organizations.
