Hi Leilani,

A small number of fire departments use my personality test and/or my
computerized background self-report form to help select fire fighters.
The background form yields 9 numeric scores on such areas as risk-taking
and relationships with others.

This would be in addition to T&E evaluations of employment apps, formal panel interviews, etc. Also, are any departments conducting background screenings that are similar to those done in law enforcement (e.g., interviews with neighbors) when hiring Firefighters? Thanks in advance for any responses.
