If you or others in your agency (Fire/EMS or LEO's) have or are deploying to aid in the hurricane relief efforts, how does your department handle your absence? Are you granted administrative leave? Forced to use sick time or vacation time? I'm curious as to how different departments stack up. I won't ask you to name your department, just your policy on dealing with the absence of those who have gone to help.

Thanks,
FlaFF

If your service to the area is coordinated through DHS, your time will be reimbursed by the feds.
