DSCR fire department participates in Safety Stand Down 2016
RICHMOND, Va. —
“Safety is everyone’s responsibility,” “Take two for safety,” “Safety is job one,” “Do it safely or don’t do it,” “Our goal is zero injuries,”… there are too many slogans about safety to cover here. No industry, occupation, profession or group of individuals understands the importance of safety more than the fire service. Yet, every year - it often seems that every day - there is an incident where someone is injured, and sometimes killed because a “culture of safety” fails.
