Surrey Fire Services Wellness Program

Surrey Fire Service Wellness Program

As Surrey Fire Service employees, our wellness is important not only to our loved ones, but to the community we serve.

The Wellness Program manual, introduced in September 2016, is a one-stop guide to the wellness programs and services available to SFS employees that cover all aspects of wellness: mental, physical, spiritual and social.

The manual was a year in the making and involved input from union, management and external experts. The goal is to help ensure SFS is the kind of place where every employee knows what support is available, knows it’s OK to seek help, and knows how to help coworkers who are struggling.

Copies of the manual have been provided to all employees and are also available for reference at Surrey Fire Service stations and in PDF format.
