Free - Affiliate FDRC Membership

Formed by Firefighter's ABC's, the Firefighter Diversity Recruitment Council is a nation-wide forum for Fire Organizations, EMS, Dispatch, Public Safety 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 full "Council" membership is open to fire departments and other related organizations such as for profit EMS agencies, government dispatch centers, public safety agencies etc. certain benefits are exclusive to "Affiliate Members".

Affiliate membership is open to anyone seeking to promote diversity within the fire service and is a non-profit organization.  If your organization is a for profit organization it can not become an affiliate member.
