I received a phone call from a reader last week who was looking for information on fire department safety committees.

In a former volunteer FD, the committee of six was charged with reviewing SOPs, procuring PPE and providing annual safety-related training. Monthly meetings would also open discussions on hot topics and we would create safety bulletins and other materials and work with the training officers.

Does your FD have a safety committee? If so, what are your goals and how do you go about accomplishing them?
