I have used the Employment Inventory (originally built by PDI and now
owned by Previsor) for firefighter selection for both the cities of Los
Angeles and Minneapolis. Relevant attributes measured included:
Conscientious work behaviors
Customer service orientation

Subject: [IPAC-List] Personality Testing for Entry-level Firefighters

Just wondering if any of my colleagues are using a personality or
psychological assessment/evaluation as a hurdle within of their
selection process for entry-level Firefighters? 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

Best Regards,
Leilani Yan
