The Philosophy of Quality

  • We believe in the constant, continuous improvement of services to our customers.
  • We believe it is essential for everyone to think of his or her work as giving satisfaction to the customer.
  • We believe our organization is a system made up of many processes with the stated purpose of providing services vital to the health, safety and prosperity of our community.
  • We believe improving the quality of all inputs to our processes will improve the quality of process outputs and reduce costs. The main inputs to our processes are workers, facilities, vehicles, equipment and materials.
  • We believe in a purchasing process where price has no meaning without a measure of the quality of items being purchased.
  • We believe it is the responsibility of management to remove barriers that prevent workers from taking pride in what they do. Barriers to worker pride include an emphasis on numbers and not quality; providing service quickly and not properly; ignoring suggestions; poor equipment and inferior materials.
  • We believe management by fear has no place among us. Fear denies workers their pride and their chance to contribute to our organization. Workers must be able to point out problems, express ideas, and ask questions without fear of retaliation.
  • We believe a system that emphasizes receptivity and recognition is preferable to one that measures people by the numbers they turn out.
