Firefighters often work in extremely hazardous environments and we’re here to help nationally.
Fire fighters are often required to work in dynamic and hazardous environments involving a high level of uncertainty. All staff involved in firefighting are required to undertake a medical assessment before being asked to undergo a physical fitness test. The physical fitness tests have been designed after reviewing similar programs both overseas and in other states where scientists have studied firefighting.
“It is certainly very challenging, but our firefighters have approached the assessment in a positive manner as they see it as a way of further ensuring their personal safety.”
