The Ocean City Volunteer Fire Company currently uses a point system modeled after the MSFA Length of Service Award Program (LOSAP). The point system determines the activity required by a member in order to remain a member in good standing in their roll (active, associate, etc.).
Membership Type - Points Requirement
Active Members: 60 points in three (3) different categories per calendar year
(ex. 20 points drills + 30 points duty crews + 10 points alarms = 60 point active year)
Associate Members: 30 points in a single category per calendar year
(ex. 30 points duty crews = 30 points associate year)

(There are paper fire incident mark-up sheets in the control room in case of a system failure. Follow instructions below.)
Paper Mark-Up Sheets
For station level drills, formal training, committee meetings, collateral duties, and military service fill out a sheet located in the control room at headquarters and place into the upright wooden mailbox on the counter next to the radio.
Attendance at company meetings, board meetings, formal drills, and duty crews will be taken by a board or company officer.
Copies of these sheets are located at the bottom of this page under "downloads" in case they are unavailable in station. The files are password protected. The password will be available in the headquarters control room (same as wifi password).
