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.
