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".

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.

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.

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.

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
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

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.
