Human Relations Committee
Many Faces...One Mission To promote, enhance and improve value-centered human relationships in the IAFC.
The vision of the committee is that the fire service will actively embrace an open, respectful, diverse workforce that is responsive to the needs of a changing environment.
We value a fire service that fosters active inclusiveness, respect, integrity, courage, fairness, equity, ethics, empathy and honesty.
A major focus of the committee's work as defined in their strategic plan (pdf), is to offer discussion, tools and resources examining ethical issues in the fire and emergency service.
Building relationships with affinity groups and other organizations that are committed to diversity and inclusiveness is a key component of the committee's work. In the past year, the HRC has undertaken a number of initiatives to improve relations across the fire and emergency service.
