Benefits of Becoming a Council Member

Formed by Firefighter’s ABCs, the Firefighter Diversity Recruitment Council is a 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.

Council membership is open to all public fire agencies.  Note: All Council members are required to have a website.

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.*
