|Signing of the availability agreement|
On September 15th, 2017, the POK® company signed an availability agreement with the SDIS de l’Aube. Through this commitment, POK commits to freeing its employees, Volunteer Firefighters, to enable them to go into intervention or training.
POK is very invested in fire fighting. Both by its core business, which is the manufacture of fire-fighting equipment but also by its actions in partnership and in favour of the Fire Brigade. The signature of an availability agreement is part of the actions carried out in favour of the Fire Brigade. In Aube, 85% of firefighters are volunteers. Giving these staff the opportunity to intervene during their working hours guarantees the continuity of an assistance and rescue service.
Like POK, more than fifty companies in Aube have committed themselves to this civic approach. POK goes further. Recently, an awareness campaign was conducted within the company to encourage employees to take the plunge and become Volunteer Firefighters.
On the occasion of the signing of this agreement, POK received the “employer-partner” label from the fire brigade as well as a diploma signed by the president of the SDIS and the prefect.
Beyond the awards, POK is proud to have volunteer Firefighters in its workforce, who are to be congratulated for their civic commitment.
