HEALTH & SAFETY STATEMENT

The purpose of this health and safety statement is to develop a high standard of wellness throughout all aspects of the Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service and to ensure that we minimize the risks associated with work that under varying conditions may be hazardous or unsanitary.

We believe that each person has the right to derive personal satisfaction from their position, and the prevention of occupational injury or illness is of such consequence to this belief that it will be given top priority at all times.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service will initiate and maintain complete accident prevention and wellness training programs. Each individual from top management to firefighter/rescuer is responsible for the wellness and health of those persons under their supervision and the personnel with whom they interact. By accepting mutual responsibility to operate safely, we will all contribute to the well being of everyone in our Organization.
