The Department of Fire Services strives to create a work environment that maximizes the potential of all employees. Diversity is not just about Human Resources policies and practices. It is an integral part of who we are, how we operate and what the Department of Fire Services vision is for the future. As a public safety agency, our ability to understand, embrace and operate in a multicultural world and provide support systems for groups is critical to our sustainability. We focus on commitment, building a culture that values diverse perspectives, and promoting communication and mutual understanding.
