Preparation of F. D. Examinations
Cities are sometimes faced with the problem of preparing fire department promotional examination questions, especially for the higher ranks in the department, where qualified technical assistance is needed but is not available locally.
Such assistance can be had if the local civil service commission knows where to turn.
The largest municipal civil service commission in this country is that maintained by New York City. Included in this commission are a large staff of specialists in all phases of municipal engineering. Those connected with the preparation and rating of fire department examinations rank among the most capable in the country.
It is suggested that municipalities seeking assistance in this line contact S. Hoberman, Ph.D., c/o Municipal Civil Service Commission, 299 Broadway New York City.
