Recruitment, Testing, Promotion

ESCI has a working knowledge and understanding of contemporary fire, EMS, and police organizations and the complexity of current delivery systems, as well as our ability to utilize advanced analytical technology and methodology to ensure accurate observations and recommendations.
Today’s emphasis on recruiting ﬁre/rescue personnel who best represent the community they serve is based on a demand from the public that their public safety department meets their diverse needs. Knowing this, ESCI has developed recruitment and entry-level testing programs that attract and employ progressive, smart, and diverse applicants. We help departments retain and cultivate these employees through all ranks using innovative and effective promotional systems, including written exams, assessment centers, accomplishment records, and other highly customized tools developed from industry-leading texts.
ESCI’s Human Capital programs extend to performance appraisal, beneﬁts and compensation comparisons, career development programs, company ofﬁcer training, mid-management training, and leadership training.
