City firefighters are above average when it comes to job satisfaction and below average for employee burnout, according to a report released by the department last week. City firefighters were one of a dozen departments across the U.S. to participate in the Fire Service Organizational Culture of Safety Report, or FOCUS, seminar in Chicago last month, according to a news release from fire Chief Daniel Speigel. The organization puts out a survey that, to date, more than 400 fire departments have used to obtain objective data to reduce injuries. “Because of this survey, its report and subsequent training, I believe it will enable our department to enhance its safety climate and safety behavior, making for a healthier, safer and more productive workforce,” Speigel said.
