About Us


Relationships by Objectives - RBO

The Phoenix Fire Department Way is based on the fundamental principal that our members are the foundation of the organization. The Department can be no better or stronger than its membership. Phoenix Firefighters Association Local 493 represents this membership and is invited through the Relationship By Objectives (RBO) process to participate in the design and implementation of the systems, procedures and processes that form the framework of our organization. The RBO process brings labor and management together in an open and honest arena to work through tough issues, deal with conflict, and reach agreement.
