"This text is well designed and should be a must for agency testing officials."

Mike Wieder
Executive Director, IFSTA
Oklahoma State University
Stillwater, OK



"This book is very well written and truly exemplifies the ideal approach to emergency services personnel
testing practices.  The discussion of Disparate Impact is sound and appropriate and it has a good potential
to create an environment of parity and equality.  Very well put together."

Dr. Maria Haberfeld
Professor and Chair
Dept. of Law, Police Science, and CJA
John Jay College of Criminal Justice
New York, NY



"What a great guide to follow for anyone involved in recruiting, hiring, or promoting within their
organization.  If you follow the guidance and use a reputable testing company you will stay out of trouble.  
Potentially the cost savings are huge.  The book is so well written and easy to read, it is like listening to a
familiar speaker talking to a room full of students, without the "lecture"."

Roger E. Bradley, Director
International Association of Fire Chiefs
New England, USA



"The New Jersey Career Fire Chiefs Association has been using the protocol presented in the book
Emergency Services Personnel Testing by Henry Morse to test member departments for several years
now.  Using these Best Practices has resulted in minimal or no challenges, and clean, efficient testing.  We
endorse and recommend this new book to anyone responsible for the Personnel Testing for Employment
or Promotion in their Police or Fire Department."

New Jersey Career Fire Chiefs Association
West Orange, NJ



"This book should be on the "must read" list for all those involved with the hiring and promotion process
for fire and police departments.  It provides a step-by-step process that is fair, balanced, and objective for
the candidate and the employer."

Chief John, S. Senft (ret)
Department of Fire/Rescue Services
City of York
York, PA



"The definitive reference and how-to guide for emergency personnel testing practices.  Thorough, well
written, with clear, step-by-step procedures for every phase of testing from beginning to end, including a
section on addressing challenges such as Disparate Impact, which have long been needed."

Indie B. Bollman, MBA, SPHR
Director of Human Resources
Private Industry
Jacksonville, FL



"By far the most comprehensive book/manual of testing practices I have run across in my 34 years in the
Fire Service.  Covering a wide array of legal issues that are key to avoiding problems or potential litigation,
definitely a "must read" for Fire, Police, and EMS administrators involved these practices.  Additionally any
Human Resources department should have this book on hand.  It can be read and used in its entirety or in
cafeteria style as applicable to your situation."

Mark A. Miller
Fire Chief
Vail Fire and Emergency Services
Vail, CO



"An essential "How To" guide for any fire service administrator tasked with conducting either employment
or promotional testing for their organization.  Further, it provides the information necessary to avoid
common pitfalls found in constructing or contracting such processes.  An invaluable tool, and a must have
for a fire service administrator's library.  Well done!"
