This exam is an example of a hazardous materials test that was created with our study guide that includes sample hazardous materials questions related to fire service much like you will see on fire department and national fire examinations. Fire-Fighter-Exam haz-mat questions were derived from, but not limited to, accredited curriculums like Jones and Bartlett's Hazardous Materials Awareness and Operations and IFSTA's Hazardous Materials for First Responders. This page is not an active fire fighter exam. It does not have the ability to be instantly graded as do the tests that you can create in the registered members area. This page is only to show you the kind of questions that appear on our hazardous materials examinations.

This is only a sample of our over fifteen hundred fire fighter questions
