Candidate Physical Agility Test

This test consists of a series of physical tasks which closely approximates physical tasks routinely performed by firefighters on the job, such as climbing stairs, carrying tools and raising ladders.

Most of these tasks are timed. Applicants are advised to prepare for the agility test for purposes of safety as well as to enhance their chance for a higher score.

With adequate preparation, the average healthy, fit individual should be able to complete the test safely and satisfactorily. During testing, all procedures will be explained in detail and demonstrated if necessary.
