Background Check

Fire and EMS personnel are some of the most trusted people in the community. They are allowed in homes and business's as well as given access to information which requires the highest levels of character and integrity. Therefore it is critical for MCFRS candidates to go through an extensive background check to ensure that those we serve can have confidence in our department.
