First we must keep abreast of the trends and proposals for new standards.
We must understand what events and studies prompted them. We must also
follow the standards through the legislative or regulatory process. This

preparation for implementing the standards as soon as possible.
The fire fighters and employees are the fire departments most important assets. I feel that their safety and the safety of the public is of the utmost importance. Fire fighting is one of the most hazardous and physically demanding professions in the U.S. Through proper planning and rigorous training, the standards that help to ensure safety can be met. Whats safe for the fire fighters is best for the citizens they serve.
