After reviewing this site I have found that it does not talk about the specifics on what is needed to become a firefighter. First you need to apply yourself with being a volunteer or looking for fire department openings. Once you find an opening, apply for it. Put together a professional resume, cross every T and dot every I. Have someone read it and fix the problems. The next step will be the written exam at a designated facility (not always the fire department). If you score high enough, which you will with the practice exams on fire fighter exam, you will move on to a physical ability test. The CPAT test is most widely known physical test. If everything is still going your way you will move on to the oral board interviews. There is an array of information on-line to help you prepare for your oral boards. You must know in advance that this is not an easy career to get into. We don't let any dummy into it who doesn't have it in their heart. Good luck on your career endeavors.
