Fire Corps Programs Receive Discount on Applicant Screening

Wednesday, 16 February 2011

Fire Corps has partnered with IntelliCorp Records Inc. to provide registered Fire Corps programs with an economical way to conduct background screenings for Fire Corps applicants and members. Conducting background checks on new applicants and members can be a vital component of mitigating liability and risks associated with having a non-operational volunteer program in your fire department.

Through this special benefit, registered Fire Corps programs receive a 50 percent savings on background screening products and solutions. Three levels of screening packages are available, starting as low as $5.95 per person screened.

“We are so pleased to partner with IntelliCorp to be able to offer this great benefit to Fire Corps programs across the country,” said Fire Corps Director Sarah Lee. “Many programs may be unable to do a thorough background check on applicants because of limited funds available, yet screening is important because these volunteers will serve as representatives of Fire Corps and the fire department. The special rates IntelliCorp is offering to Fire Corps teams makes applicant screening attainable and helps departments mitigate their liability risks.”

Screening should be a critical part of the application process for Fire Corps members. As outlined in the Fire Corps Liability Guide, common screening approaches an organization may use include reference checks, confirmation of credentials and professional competence, criminal conviction checks, fingerprinting, drug testing, and driving record checks. Consent from the applicant should be obtained in writing before a screening is performed.

Fire Corps programs can utilize the significant discount with IntelliCorp to access industry-leading data that provides the most comprehensive information possible on your applicants. Using secure technology, the screening provided by IntelliCorps can help streamline your application process and identify those who are more likely to cause problems and produce unexpected results.
