A Day in the Life of a Firefighter

firetruckJob Opportunity – Firefighter.  Being a firefighter is one of those jobs that people dream about since childhood.  If you are thinking this is the field for you then you should learn a little about what the job is really like.  I’ve included a video that I think gives a decent idea of what to expect, at least in the everyday aspect.

You may not need a degree but it does take quite a bit of schooling to become a firefighter.  You will need 468 hours of training that cover the requirements of the National Fire Protection Association.  There will probably various tests and evaluations depending on the hiring procedures of the agency you are joining.  One thing that is pretty standard is a criminal background check but you could also be subject to a credit check.

The run time for this video is 13:17 minutes.
