Firefighting is a very rewarding job, but it is also extremely mentally and physically demanding. You are tasked with protecting lives and property and in addition to battling sweltering flames, you must also be able to rescue people and pets from buildings. The job is strenuous and the Fire Academy implements a thorough training regimen to ensure that recruits are ready for the real-world situations they will face.
What are the physical requirements of Fire Academy recruits?
Firefighting is a physically demanding job. In fact, one of the toughest challenges faced by Fire Academy recruits is the physical requirements of the training program. Every day, recruits are faced with a rigorous physical fitness regimen and it is important to be prepared. As a firefighter, you must be able to lift and carry hoses, climb towers and multiple flights of stairs, lift and extend ladders, and drag people from buildings. These are strenuous activities that require strength, endurance, and skill. As a Fire Academy recruit, you will be tested on these skills and failure to complete them successfully can lead to you being disqualified as a candidate.
