Scheduling Critical Incident Appointments
INSIGHTS FROM OUR CEO
The FMRT Group listens to our clients, and we learn from your personnel. We understand the demanding nature of public safety work and its toll on individuals’ personal lives. To ensure officers can prioritize their personal well-being following critical incidents, we respectfully recommend that these appointments be scheduled during their on-duty hours. By doing so, officers will not only be compensated for their time but also avoid any loss of compensation during these crucial appointments. Moreover, we aim to support them in maximizing their personal time outside of work, especially in the aftermath of challenging incidents.
FMRT staff have also received feedback from public safety employees about not returning until their appointment. As a reminder, these are not fitness-for-duty evaluations. This may be part of your department’s required policy, but nothing in a critical incident report clears them for work. These are appointments for their benefit. Of course, if there are areas of vital importance impacting safety to themselves or others, the employee and referring party are made aware of the necessary steps that have to be taken by our clinicians.
Thank you for your understanding and consideration. We encourage transparency amongst the department, employees, and FMRT to ensure clear expectations and objectives are met.
We want to hear from you – what are your thoughts or information that would be helpful for us to know regarding this topic? Let’s keep the conversation going. Elizabeth@fmrt.org

Please Ask Your IT to Whitelist (fmrt.org)
Don’t worry; we’re not going to send you 3,502 emails! However, if you want to get evaluation result notifications and updates about your referrals, we ask that you request your IT department to whitelist our domain: fmrt.org.
Background Information Request
The FMRT Group is requesting the inclusion of additional data for the evaluator to review before your candidates’ appointment. For our NC law enforcement agencies, the F-8 will be requested in addition to the existing F-3 form or when scheduling applicants’ appointments. Our colleagues in SC have an equivalent system called ACADIS/Background. To ensure a seamless transition and address any queries you may have regarding the background information request, you can reach Kaci via email at email@example.com
