Go raibh maith agat, a Cheann Comhairle. Agus í ag coimhlíonadh a gealltanais timpeallacht neodrach oibre a chruthú i ngach áitreabh de chuid na Seirbhíse Dóiteáin, tá polasaí comhionannais deise agus scéim chomhionannais alt 75 i bhfeidhm ag an Údarás Dóiteáin. D’aontaigh an t-údarás chomh maith le hionadaithe foirne ar chomhfhógairt chosanta a bhfuil sé de aidhm aici timpeallacht chomhchuibhiúil oibre a chur chun cinn d’fhoireann na Seirbhíse Dóiteáin go léir. Tá cóip di ar taispeáint i ngach áitreabh de chuid na Seirbhíse Dóiteáin.

In fulfilling its commitment to the creation of a neutral working environment in all Fire Service premises, the Fire Authority has an equal opportunities policy and the corresponding section 75 equality scheme in place. The authority has also agreed with staff side representatives a joint declaration of protection aimed at promoting a harmonious working environment for all Fire Service staff, a copy of which is displayed in all Fire Service properties.
