During the background investigation for a potential firefighter, is the applicant's medical records obtained? I have heard conflicting stories on this.
If so, is an applicant required to sign a release of information for medical records, or is this protected by HIPAA?
I know with PD's medical history is part of the background investigation, I was unsure if this is the same with fire departments.
