Q&A: FW fire commission candidates share views/Question 7
The district follows similar hiring practices to other districts in the
county. We must be careful to stay within state and federal guidelines for
hiring, while ensuring that all new employees can fulfull their duties in an
above average manner. Firefighters are there to save lives and property.
High standards in the hiring program are a must.
The district needs to be more aggressive in hiring women and minorities. I feel the hiring standards need to be maintained, not lowered, to meet this goal. We can do this through public education at high schools, colleges and public job fairs.
