Our Community: Our County
Orange County’s public servants are meeting this crisis with a level of courage and professionalism that fills our community with pride. Despite the efforts of our public servants, the health of thousands of County public workers is being put at risk.
This puts Orange County IN DANGER!
The Orange County Employees have demanded all public employers provide basic safety standards for all public servants in this crisis.
In short, we demand:
- Safety at work
- Stability in these challenging times
- Security for them and their families
Show your support for public safety heroes, by signing our online petition. We will use your name to show community support for common sense safety solutions.
