Fit for duty as a firefighter

The role of a firefighter can be physically demanding. But even if you don't think you are particularly fit, don't let this put you off applying.

With a bit of commitment and effort you can meet the standards.

Potential new recruits will take part in physical tests to make sure they are fit enough to carry out the role effectively and safely. All the tests mirror the work of a firefighter - like lifting and carrying equipment, evacuating casualties, climbing ladders and stairs and so on. 

All firefighters take an annual fitness test.
