This article discusses how to give the most helpful advice, and tells you the do's and dont's of how to get advice from others.

Congratulations to the leadership of New Milford and Windsor Locks (Winners in the 2015 CIRMA Risk Management Award program). Both towns took steps to improve the safety culture within their agencies by creating organizational structures such as a  Safety Solutions Team, a Department Safety Committee, regular tool box talks led by crew members, updated department procedures, regular facilities and equipment audits, and incident investigation reviews that identify root causes and corrective action for unsafe behavior. These agencies are seeing the positive results of their proactive leadership efforts.

We encourage you to share your success stories with us, no matter how big or small by sending an email to Nicole Creaturo. We would love to share them here, with your TLP community.
