What is the program?
The Fire Fit program will assess your readiness to complete the Firefighter Physical Abilities (FPA) Test. You will be assessed on your performance for each test and given individualized instructions and training program to help you focus on areas that need improvement. The goal is to help you be ready for the FPA test and give you confidence in your ability to pass it!
Who is it for?

If you are a volunteer firefighter looking to take the leap to full-time or wanting to work on your fitness to improve your physical abilities within your volunteer department, we can help. If you have a passion but not the experience with the specific skills tested in the FPA and used in firefighting, or if you are unsure of your fitness level and want to have the best chance of success so you don’t miss a hiring opportunity, we can help you reach your goal.
