Message from the DSH Fire Chief - Napa State Hospital
As the Fire Chief at DSH-Napa, my goals are to provide high quality fire/emergency medical care services to all patients, staff and visitors as well as protect the people and property of the State of California. The DSH-Napa Fire Department's mission in line with the hospital's mission is to provide evaluation and treatment in a safe and responsible manner, seeking innovation and excellence in hospital operations, across a continuum of care and settings. I believe the Fire Department's contribution to this mission is to improve services to the patients and staff here at DSH-Napa and in the adjoining community through mutual aid. The fulfillment of this mission will be met by improvements to fire service training, education, and equipment. This will include the use of new technologies, making tasks more efficient, and upgrading outdated command structures that no longer provide the necessary accountability for safe and effective operations within the Fire Department. Through these improvements, I believe the dedicated Firefighters who provide services at DSH-Napa will be able to do so in a manner that increases the quality of patient care and protects the lives of anyone who resides, works, or visits the Department of State Hospitals-Napa.
