Diversity and Equal Opportunity

No one will be denied opportunities or benefits on the basis of age, sex, color, race, creed, national origin, religious persuasion, marital status, political belief, or disability that does not prohibit performance of essential job functions; nor will anyone receive special treatment for those reasons.

Westlake Fire Department believes diversity and inclusion are key attributes to a successful organization; the talent and ideas that come from a culturally diverse workforce will help us grow and provide the very best emergency response for our community.

Like our core principles, we are committed to providing an inclusive environment. We aim to ensure that information and opportunities are accessible to all. We uphold this aim by being transparent in our daily operations and by providing outreach to Westlake and surrounding communities.

Diversity and inclusion is more than policies and principles. It is about understanding and using the differences that each unique individual possesses. We believe that we can only provide the best service to our community if we truly embrace these differences in an attempt to understand our community.
