Incident Safety

The Health & Safety Division has a small group on Incident Safety Officers who respond to major incidents where they monitor and assess hazards and unsafe situations to ensure safe operations to efficiently mitigate the emergency incident.

Infection Control

The department's Health & Safety Officer acts as the Designated Infection Control Officer (DICO) to serve as a liaison between members who have sustained exposures to communicable diseases.

Health and Wellness

Health and Wellness provides medical physicals designed to provide early detection of serious medical conditions and encourage better health, in accordance with National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) Standards 1582.

Critical Incident Stress Management  

CVFD provides around-the-clock peer based support, intervention, and stress management education to emergency responders. The goal is to reduce critical incident stress on department personnel and prevent the long-term impact from traumatic stress. The CISM team can be activated for a fatality or serious injury of a member or family member, death or serious injury involving a child, or any other high stress situation. 

Member Assistance Program

The Member Assistance Program provides confidential counseling, guidance, and referral services to help members in resolving personal problems that may be adversely affecting their performance, such as emotional problems or substance/alcohol abuse.
