The Training Office of the Bay City Department of Public Safety-Fire Operations Division is overseen by an Assistant Fire Chief. The office is tasked with firefighter training, as well as health and safety.

In 2013, we saw the graduation of 29 Public Safety Officers from the Bay County Fire Academy. These new PSO's successfully underwent orientation for fire operations and are now part of the firefighting force. We've also seen two paid-on-call firefighters successfully complete the fire academy and orientation process, who are now active.

Other types of training delivered to public safety personnel include proper operation of firefighting equipment, fire theory, firefighter right-to-know, hazardous materials, and safe operations on the fire ground. Full time firefighters also receive classes to earn continuing education credits for Emergency Medical Technician licensure.

The Training Office also schedules tuberculosis testing for all full-time firefighters as part of the department's Health & Safety Program. The office also handles medical surveillance and follow-up of occupational exposures.

Message From The Director:

I am pleased to present the first annual report for the Bay City Department of Public Safety. In January of 2013, by resolution of the Bay City Commission, the Bay City Department of Public Safety was created. The former fire and police departments were consolidated creating a single department that provides both police and fire services to the community.

The creation of the Department of Public Safety and the transition to a dual service organization required many tough decisions and a lot of hard work by all of our employees. During the transition, which involved firefighter I and II cross training of 26 law enforcement officers, employees continued to provide a high level of service to the community.

In 2013, Bay City experienced an overall reduction in UCR Part One and Part Two crimes. We also saw a 2% drop in overall reported offenses. In addition to the reduction in crime, Bay City saw a reduction in the overall number of structure fires.

Prior to the creation of the Department of Public Safety, the City of Bay City had 43 employees trained to fight fires and 3 fire stations. With the creation of the Department of Public Safety the City of Bay City now has 62 employees trained to fight fires and 4 fire stations.

I want to take this opportunity to thank all Department of Public Safety employees for their hard work over the past year. Their efforts and the efforts of other City staff led to a successful transition which resulted in increased service to the community and a 1.1 million dollar savings to the tax paying citizens of Bay City.
