Risk Management – Wellness/Fitness/Injury
Tracking System
Eugene A. Jones
Fire Chief
Goal: To provide tangible and effective information that
substantiates the investment of resources towards the Department’s
Wellness and Fitness Program.
Objectives: By FY2008 have “real time” technology processes in
place to track non-productive hours due to illnesses, failed medical
physicals, injuries and orthopedic injuries.
Key Service: Total Health Risk Management will focus on the
appraisal, planning and management of the wellness and fitness of
personnel. This will improve the Department’s safety, readiness and
resources as it protects the community.
