Safety Standards for Firefighters

The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) advised the department of a couple of areas in the firefighter standard where we are not as effective as the federal rules. Additionally, stakeholders asked us to look at our firefighter standards and bring them up-to-date with current consensus standards and practices. The changes were adopted 2/19/2013 and became effective on 1/1/2014.535.
