Your Department's Experience is Critical to Advancing Firefighter and Public Safety

 

SAFER is designed to act as a mouthpiece for our member departments in the development of standards for firefighter safety, protective clothing and equipment. We offer input to state and national agencies such as CAL/OSHA, N.I.O.S.H., and NFPA - only through your experiences can we make these standards better for current and future generations. 

 

 

SAFER associates itself with other organizations that further the health and safety of firefighters everywhere.

Through SAFER, our members can work with manufacturers of equipment for the Fire Service on product research and development. Many of our vendor members have an active interest in the recommendations of firefighters to improve on current equipment, or develop new ideas.
