ABSTRACT

Lack of Chief Officer Promotions from Within the Durham, New Hampshire Fire Department   [open pdf - 978KB]

"The problem was that the Durham Fire Department captains do not apply for promotions to chief officer positions. The purpose was to determine why the captains in the Durham Fire Department do not apply for chief officer positions within the department. Through descriptive research, the following questions were answered: 1. What do Durham Fire Department Chief Officers think are the reasons that captains do not want to be promoted? 2. What do Durham FD [Fire Department] captains state are the reasons that they do not want to be promoted? 3. What have the Dover, Rochester and Hampton NH [New Hampshire] Fire Departments done that has allowed them to consistently fill their chief officer positions from within? 4. What programs/policies could be considered in Durham that would encourage captains to seek promotion?"
