Recognized for Promoting Firefighter Safety Within Galveston Fire Department

GALVESTON, TX (February 26, 2013) - Galveston Fire Chief Jeff Smith received the Texas Fire Chief's Association Safety Award during this year's Southwest Fire Rescue Conference in Corpus Christi, Texas. This award is presented each year to a Fire Chief who exceeds expectations and national standards to promote Firefighter safety within the department they lead.

Chief Smith was recognized for his efforts to enhance the Fire Department's safety practices and maintain the safety record of Galveston firefighters. Galveston Fire Department responds to over 8,000 calls for service annually. 

Galveston Fire Department follows state requirements and National Fire Protection Association standards adopted by the Texas Commission on Fire Protection. These standards include practices such as "two in - two out," requiring two firefighters be available outside as a rescue team any time two firefighters enter a dangerous atmosphere. Galveston Fire Department also uses the National Incident Management System, where an Incident Commander is positioned outside of a hazard area any time an incident requires the response of more than one fire crew. Following this protocol allows for a single plan of action and accountability for each firefighter operating on the scene. In 2012, Galveston firefighters were some of the first to complete the Texas Commission on Fire Protection's "Courage to be Safe" class.

"Recipients of this award are selected by a committee of Fire Chiefs from across Texas" stated City Manager Michael Kovacs. "We are extremely proud of Chief Smith for his dedication to the safety of every firefighter and the leadership he demonstrates on a daily basis."

Chief Smith is a 30 year veteran of the Galveston Fire Department. For additional information about Galveston Fire Department, visit www.GalvestonFire.com or call (409) 797-3850.

Galveston Fire Chief Jeff Smith, Galveston Assistant Fire Chief Mike Wisko, President - Texas Fire Chief's Association and Midland Fire Chief Robert Isbell.
