I will, as a member of the Douglas Fire Department
, regard myself as a member of an important and honorable profession.
I will conduct both my personal and professional life so as to merit the confidence of the public.
I will not use my profession or my position of trust for personal advantage or profit.
I will regard my brother firemen with the same standards as I hold for myself. I will never betray a confidence, nor otherwise jeopardize his profession.
I will avoid alliances with those whose goals are inconsistent with an honest and unbiased organization.
I will make no claims to professional qualifications which I do not possess.
I will share all pertinent knowledge with my fellow firemen.
I will be loyal to my superiors, to my subordinates and to the Douglas Fire Department which I represent.
I will keep in mind always that I am a public servant, not a private employee and will serve the public to the best of my ability.
