March 1, 2021 is National Public Risk Management Awareness Day. We would like to recognize our safety and risk teams and give kudos to all of these staff members and groups within Jefferson County who work so hard behind the scenes every day to enhance our ability to serve our community.
Here in Jefferson County, we experience a diverse amount of risk in performing various functions within the communities we serve. Safety is our top priority for all of our programs and services, including facilities, roadwork, public health, parks, public safety, security and Head Start. Our safety and risk professionals throughout Jefferson County implement various initiatives designed to reduce risks while conducting these programs and services. This allows for improved safety and fiscal stewardship for our employees and the community we serve.
