Who is applying to be on your fire department? Background checks! Gordon Graham is doing a no cost webinar about fire department background checks-and it will be well worth your, your HR departments, your fire department leadership or perhaps your probation officers time …to register.
MONDAY JUNE 18- 1300 Hours Eastern (Registration link below)
The risks of a bad hire in the fire & EMS service are enormous. A single “bad apple” can destroy your department’s reputation, expose you to lawsuits and waste thousands of dollars in costs spent on recruiting and training.
And yet in many fire departments (volunteer, career or combination), the background investigation process is inadequate-and many fire departments don’t even conduct them.
In this webinar, Lexipol’s Gordon Graham and Chief Rich Henderson (CHP Ret) will explore the need for fire, EMS and related public safety agencies to perform “real” background checks, what such investigations should entail, and strategies for conducting an effective pre-employment screening.
-Real-world examples of how the lack of a comprehensive background investigation exposes your department to risk
-Challenges fire departments face when conducting background investigations
-Key components to include in a background investigation
This is another no cost opportunity from Lexipol to learn how important it is for your department leadership to genuinely know WHO will be crawling down that hallway, running an EMS call in someones home, driving your apparatus or just being in quarters with the other members of your agency.
