The agencies within our organization believe in making a career in the fire service accessible for everyone, regardless of their personal identifiers, financial status, or diverse background. For that reason, our agencies work together on a number of different programs that improve the services we provide to potential members and our communities. These programs not only improve accessibility, but they allow our agencies to use their collective buying power to streamline processes and improve fiscal responsibility for tax payers. Programs like this one are a prime example, which is designed to create a more inclusive exam and hiring experience for future firefighters, while reducing redundancies in the hiring process.
