Measure allowing for new firefighter test moves forward

Steps are being taken to comply with the terms of a settlement that will give 138 former female firefighter applicants the option to reapply for a job with the Chicago Fire Department.

The City Council Committee on Workforce Development and Audit approved an ordinance Wednesday that would permit the city’s fire commissioner to enter into agreements with outside agencies to provide training and testing for “prospective members” of the fire department. Existing law grants the commissioner authority to contract with entities for the provision of services for current members only.
