To fully protect their own organizations as well as the communities they serve, it’s important firefighters and other first responders trust the volunteers beside them. Whether paid or unpaid, all first responders should submit to background checks and drug screenings before climbing aboard to guarantee they are drug-free and without criminal records.

Safety First

The background screening experts at JDP (JDP) partnered with the National Volunteer Fire Council (NVFC) to develop First Responder Search & Review (FRS&R)— the industry's most qualified background screening service for fire, EMS and rescue service organizations. With FRS&R, you have an easy and effective way to determine whether prospective volunteers are ready, worthy and able to join the team.
