Assessment Centers for Non-Members

The Alliance Advantage

The Miami Valley Fire/EMS Alliance believes strongly in the benefits of membership. An organization is only as strong as the level of participation by the members. We appreciate our members and their strong support. When products and services are promoted by the membership, then an organization is relevant and growing. To this end, the Alliance Board of Directors is offering Assessment Centers to non-members. The Alliance Assessment Centers are a valuable regional asset for the betterment of the fire service in the region. It is the Board of Direc-tors belief that non-members in the eight contiguous counties of the Miami Valley will at a future date understand the benefits of joining the Alliance.

Together, working regionally, while maintaining each departments’ unique identity and practices is truly the Alliance Advantage.
