Benefits of Becoming a Council Member

Formed by Firefighter's ABC's, the Firefighter Diversity Recruitment Council is a nation-wide forum of fire organizations and their HR Recruitment Teams. The Council's mission is to achieve levels of diversity that more closely reflect the racial and gender make-up of served communities. Through this collaboration, our ultimate objective is to maintain a full pipeline of diverse candidates while lowering the cost of their recruitment by:

  • Sharing "Best Practices" in the recruitment of diverse candidates.
  • Programs that more effectively target quality candidates.
  • Preparation tools that increase testing success rates.
  • Extending the pool of diverse candidates through the National Recruit Database.

While Council membership is open to all fire organizations, certain benefits are exclusive to "Paid" Fire Departments and their HR Recruitment Teams.*

Council membership is open to paid fire departments only. (There must be at least one full-time paid member of your department – Example, full-time paid Fire Chief and the remainder volunteers.) Note: All Council member departments are required to have a web site.

Membership Benefits Include:

  • Planning considerations to assist in the development of long-term diversity recruitment strategies.
  • "How To" tips to increase the effectiveness of near-term recruiting events.
  • Articles by diversity recruitment experts and Council members.
  • The ability to broadcast application, testing and other recruitment related announcements to candidates subscribing to the National Recruit Database.*
  • Forum/chat room to collaborate directly with fellow Council members.*
  • Postings of entry level testing and other job openings among fellow Council members.*
  • Receive "Free" subscriptions to the National Recruit Database under the D.R.I.V.E. Program. Click here for more information on D.R.I.V.E. Program
