One last friendly reminder that 2022 safety committee minutes must be submitted to NIRMA by 5:00 pm central time on January 31st if you wish to be considered for the Money for Minutes awards.

To be eligible for one of the five $500.00 Money for Minutes awards your safety committee must have met at least quarterly, submitted copies of each meeting’s minutes and during those meetings each incident/event/injury that occurred during the previous quarter needs to be discussed. The discussion needs to include recommendations as to how to keep similar events from reoccurring. All member counties and agencies that meet those requirements will be placed in a random drawing for one of five $500.00 awards.
