The North East Joint Fire District is honored to have received this award and it is a testament to the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteer firefighters from the Webster Fire Department. We owe them a large debt of gratitude for their selfless dedication to serving our community in a professional and safe manner. The phrase “Safety Is No Accident” isn’t hyperbole. It is a statement that defines a culture of safety in where all members, regardless of the activities they are engaged in, actively and consciously engage in safe work practices.
