HIRE FOR INTEGRITY
“Your character is built on integrity. It’s built on honesty with yourself and those around you. Having integrity takes having values. Integrity is the foundation for character and your character is defined by how you act and what you do when no one is looking” – Pride & Ownership: A Firefighter’s Love of the Job.
At the Bowling Green Fire Department, INTEGRITY is the building block of a great firefighter. We’re seeking individuals to join our department who value integrity and strive to do the right thing when no one is watching.
