Quality Assurance & Safety

It is the mission of the Utah Fire and Rescue Academy (UFRA) to continuously promote safe practices and improve the quality of our deliverables. By setting the example, we hope that Utah can become the leading State for safe practices. As part of our safety program we have adopted the following:

Brian Hunton Seat Belt Pledge:
"Firefighter Christopher Brian Hunton, age 27, was a member of the Amarillo Texas fire department for one year. On April 23, 2005 he fell out of his fire truck responding to an alarm he died two days later from his injuries. Brian was not wearing his seat belt. I pledge to wear my seat belt whenever I am riding in Fire Department vehicles. I further pledge to insure that all my brother and sister firefighters riding with me wear their seat belts. I make this pledge willingly; to honor Brian Hunton my brother firefighter and because wearing seat belts it is the right thing to do. On My Honor, I So Pledge."
