Firehouse Presents DEI in the Fire Service Survey Results

Municipalities have placed a renewed focus on building workforces that reflect the diversity of the community that they serve and on a culture that values inclusion. The potential benefits of increasing diversity and producing a more inclusive workforce also can provide a positive economic effect within a municipality. What recruitment strategies do fire departments prefer to use to create a diverse workforce? What affects diversity in the fire service?

Endeavor Business Intelligence, in partnership with Firehouse, conducted a survey to learn about fire departments’ diversity, inclusion and equity efforts and what people of color encountered along the way on their fire service journey. The purpose of this research is to begin to answer these questions and to help departments with their diversity, equity and inclusion goals.
