Exam Description:Becoming a professional firefighter is one of the most difficult career ambitions in the country. On average there are over 100 people who apply for each position. While the numbers seem staggering, there are many aspiring firefighters who receive multiple job offers. While some may attribute getting hired to good fortune, in reality it takes passion, commitment, dedication and determination to earn the badge of a firefighter.
With so many available candidates, fire departments can pick from the cream of the crop. They will choose those candidates who are obviously committed to pursuing their dream, because they don?t want to waste their time training people who aren't as passionate about their job as they are.
