We had a great day at the MN State Fair!
We had a great day at the MN State Fair yesterday talking to people from across the state who want to become firefighters. There is so much information but few ways to get the information. We conducted research this year on how many fire departments across the state actually have a website or any information on how to become a firefighter with them. The results were astonishing! We found only a few who had a solid page dedicated to recruitment OR even had a website at all. Times have changed, people want access to information at the tap of a screen. If it is not provided, potential candidates give up and walk away. We heard that yesterday from several potential candidates.
We are expecting a new look and feel for MN FIRE HIRE for 2018. We want to improve the recruitment efforts of firefighters across Minnesota and beyond.
