Position lower

In the past, promotions required a firefighter serve in the 'position lower' for two years; no other qualifications were required.  For example, when a firefighters wanted to promote to Captain, he or she served as a Lieutenant for two years to become eligible to promote to Captain. Currently, our members take a written exam administered by a third-party and participate in an assessment center during which a team evaluates their leadership skills and ability to run a fireground. If Civil Service is adopted, the Frisco Fire Department could not require any certifications or include an Assessment Center. In other words, a person who scores highest on a written test would be promoted. However, a high score on a written test is not a good predictor of leadership or the ability to run a fireground.
