Diversity and Inclusion in Volunteer Fire and EMS Agencies
November 4, 2021 at 1pm ET
Do the demographics of your fire or EMS department’s membership match the makeup of your community? For most U.S. fire departments, membership has historically been comprised of mainly white men. Departments that embrace the differences in their community and are inclusive in their beliefs and membership roles are headed in the right direction for strong recruitment and retention moving forward. This webinar, presented by Dave Denniston, Katie Niver, and Stephanie Rothery of ESIP, will examine how diversity and inclusion benefits the emergency services and quick and easy tips to enhance diversity and inclusion in your department.
