Oct

2009

The Women’s Network of the Red River Valley (WNRRV) is pleased to be working with the Fargo Fire Department in their efforts to address the lack of representation of white women and women and men of color in their workforce. Captain Dane Carley of the Fargo Fire Department has created a survey with input from WNRRV members to seek input from the community on how to improve their hiring process. We applaud the efforts of the Fargo Fire Dept. to improve there hiring process.

Please read the message from Captain Carley, and take the public perception survey, so we can gain a better idea of what changes are needed for equitable representation in the Fargo Fire Dept.

Please pass this survey on to everyone you know.
______________________________________________

The Fargo Fire Department is interested in learning what the community’s perception is of the fire department. We are interested in diversifying our candidate pool and feel that one tool to do so is to deliver the appropriate message to people via an appropriate form of media. A survey has been developed to help us learn about the community and what the community members think of the fire department and a career in the fire service. You will find two ways to access this survey below.

The focus of our interest is on the immediate Cass and Clay Counties area and I welcome anyone who would like to forward this link to someone in the Cass and Clay Counties area to do so. Regional input is also helpful but not our primary focus. If you are aware of an interested organization within the eastern North Dakota, northwestern Minnesota, or northeastern South Dakota area that would have input, please forward it to that group also; however, I will not be traveling out of the two county area to pick up paper copies.

If you have any questions, please call me at (218)329-2630 between 8:00 am and 7:00 pm. If I do not answer, please leave a message and I will return your call as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for your time,
Dane Carley
