The Los Santos Fire Department commits to the efficient daily operation of the Department, and maintains active presence within the Professional Standards Division to hold Firefighters and other employees accountable. While the Professional Standards Division and its associated officers make full attempt to produce reasonable resolution the first time an incident arises, employees may still feel that the issued disciplinary action is not appropriate.

In this event, employees of this Department are allowed to appeal an incident in which disciplinary action was issued. Appeals are reviewed by the Board of Rights, and must be submitted within two weeks of the occurrence of the incident. After this amount of time, the Department is no longer liable to maintain full evidence relevant to the incident, unless otherwise noted.

Appeals may be submitted with the assistance of legal counsel, provided the employee is appealing an incident in which disciplinary action was issued against themselves specifically. Employees may not appeal for other employees, other parties must produce their own appeal for their involvement in that specific incident to be reviewed.

Appeals may only be submitted once per incident (i.e: may not be appealed again if already handled, or still being handled). Appeals must only be made for resolved disciplinary incidents, and do not apply to action temporarily taken during the course of an investigation (i.e: administrative leave). Additionally, employment terminations may not be appealed through the Board of Rights.
