Thank you to Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service who signed the charter on 4th February 2019 providing protection for their 1,300 employees.
Chief Fire Officer, Chris Davies QFSM, said:
“It is of the utmost importance that Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service fully endorse and sign the Dying to Work Charter, as we hope it will provide a small amount of peace of mind for an employee and their family, during the most difficult of times.
"I would like to thank Wales TUC Cymru, the Fire Brigades Union, Fire and Rescue Services Association, Fire Officers Association, UNISON and GMB for working with us to draft this Charter, which is specific to the needs of our employees.
"Our core values are to treat people with respect; perform with excellence and to do the right thing. Should a member of our staff receive such a cruel diagnosis, it is important that he or she knows that, as a family, Mid and West Wales Fire and Rescue Service will support them to the best of our ability.”
