Review protest and response to Fire Lieutenant's promotional exam, held February 16, 2011.
 
The Commission reviewed the report from the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association regarding a protest of the written examination for Lieutenant in the Fire Department.
 
The Secretary presented the written examination and answer key for the Lieutenant's exam for review.
 
The Commission reviewed Question #22, the answer key and the text from which the question was taken. The protest as submitted by the candidate was read by the Chairman.
 
Firefighter Procop, the candidate who submitted the protest was present and explained that he felt that in referring to the text, only half of the sentence was referenced in the test, and had the entire sentence been referenced, it would have greatly changed the question.
 
Chief Carroll stated that given the response by Chief Talcott, of the Ohio Fire Chiefs' Association, the answer is the "most correct" answer, and then stated he concurs with Chief Talcott.
 
Ms. Sweeney felt it would be fair if the question was thrown out.
 
It was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Mr. Patete that the Commission uphold the decision of Chief Talcott on Question #22, to disallow the protest.
 
The question was put to a voice vote and passed with Ms. Sweeney voting no.
 
Motion carried.

Following discussion, it was moved by Mr. Schmidlin, seconded by Ms. Sweeney that the grades in the recently administered promotional examinations in the Fire Department be approved as presented.
