ARRIVE TO AND RETURN FROM WORK SAFE

Chesterfield, MO-The Monarch Fire Protection District (MFPD) “Safety Incentive Program” was unveiled on October 1, 2014, and is off to a successful start. MFPD is pleased to announce two of the four shifts have already achieved their first 60-day safety incentive goal. Each of these crews has had no reportable injuries within a 60-day period.

This is the newest addition to an already robust emphasis on employee health and safety. The Safety Incentive Program was dovetailed off the recent introduction of the applauded District Safety Manual as part of the Worker’s Compensation Reform instituted by the Board of Directors. We have attempted to couple these programs with training in an effort to raise the bar on employee safety. “It is our intent that every employee of MFPD arrive to their shift safe and healthy and return from their shift safe and healthy”, emphasized Chief Chuck Marsonette.

“This is a significant achievement that demonstrates the cooperation between the staff and our new Command team of Chief Chuck Marsonette and Assistant Chief Cary Spiegel,” continued Board President Robin Harris.
