Job Profile: Firefighters

Firefighters have one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. When they are not on call and dealing with actual fires they spend their time tirelessly trying to train the public on fire safety and the importance of fire drills. During this time they also prepare for the next emergency and unfortunately there is always is a next one.

Firefighters are renowned the world over for their bravery and have saved many people lives over the years.

Firefighters need to be physically fit and strong and able to think on their feet and work well under pressure.

Firefighters must, at a minimum have a high school diploma although some college is preferred. Following a written and physical entrance exam, new firefighters go through a strenuous and intensive training program.

Firefighters always have work even in poor economic times and it is expected to see a growth in the profession over the next few years.
