    Lightbulb Post your mission statement

    Here is my FD's mission statement:

    The mission of the Marlborough Fire Department is to provide for the safety of life, property, and protection of the environment by serving in a safe and professional manner through the efforts of public education, prevention, fire suppression activities, response to medical emergencies, and mitigation of hazardous conditions. With the integrity, courage, and spirit of the Fire Service, we will endeavor to preserve the quality of life enjoyed by our community.
    What's yours?
    ‎"The education of a firefighter and the continued education of a firefighter is what makes "real" firefighters. Continuous skill development is the core of progressive firefighting. We learn by doing and doing it again and again, both on the training ground and the fireground."
    Lt. Ray McCormack, FDNY

    heres ours:

    The mission of the Superior Fire Department is to provide those services necessary for the protection of life and property as the need is recognized within our community.



    The Fire Department accomplishes this mission by providing two types of service, emergency response and prevention.



    The Fire Department provides emergency response to fires, release of hazardous materials, life threatening medical emergencies, life rescue and potential property loss.



    The Fire Department provides prevention services through educational programs, code enforcement, building inspection, arson investigation and other community based services.
    Be SAFE!!! Go home when your shift is done and enjoy life.
    This is MY OPINION and ONLY MINE.
    Not my Departments/IAFF/WPFF

    I'll have to get back to you once Bill O'Rielly returns my email on what the Va Beach mission statement is

    Virginia Beach FD

    Amateurs practice until they get it right; professionals practice until they cannot get it wrong. Which one are you?

    'The fire went out and nobody got hurt' is a poor excuse for a fireground critique.

    I saw a nice one from a Dept to my South.
    3 lines on their business card, letterheads, etc:
    "Respond Quickly.
    Work Efficiently.
    Be Nice."

    Wow, that's not like the PC crap on most mission statements, but it kinda summs it up, huh?

    I am not at the FD so I don't have access to the official Mission Statement but I do have a personal one. It is short and sweet.

    1) Do not do anything so stupid as to endanger your career.

    2) Do everything within my power to make it to retirement physically, mentally and financially sound enough to enjoy the years remaining.

    Seems to me to be clear and concise with little of the feel good gobbledy gook of many mission statements.

    We have no mission statement, which I'm happy with because they are a bunch of nonsense. If the members of your department are so lost that they need an 80-sentence paragraph of multi-syllable words to give them direction, you need smarter members or stronger leaders.

    We do have a motto that I like... "Commitment to Community."

    Ours is: "To prevent and Combat fires, and promote a spirit of Sociability among the people of the Community". This became our mission statement in 1929, long before the term Mission Statement was invented.
