Event Details

 

Firefighter Awareness Day

We will provide an overview of the service, discuss the application process and give you the opportunity to look and have a go at the physical test that will form part of the entry process. 

Please bring with you the following: 

  • Track suit or similar
  • Thick socks (football/walking type)
  • Towel
  • Snack
  • Drink

 Please note: showering facilities will not be available due to group sizes.

 

For further information you can find all you need on our website: www.joinwyfirefighters.com

Some key bits you need to know:

 

  • We are recruiting for full time (“whole-time”) Firefighters to start training with us in 2019, with initial training courses being run in January, May and September 2019
  • We are always looking for on-call “retained” firefighters – for more information see www.westyorksfire.gov.uk

 

Who can join?

  • There’s no academic qualifications required to apply
  • There’s also no upper age limit but you must be age 18 on the 1st January 2019
  • You can apply from anywhere in the country – there’s no postcode restriction
  • You must be eligible to live and work in the UK
  • You need a full UK driving licence at time of application
  • Being physically fit prior to applying is essential

 

The physical tests will challenge all aspects of your fitness (aerobic endurance, muscular endurance and muscular strength). Therefore, you must adopt a whole body approach to your training that develops these specific aspects of fitness. High intensity interval training and circuit training involving weights for developing aerobic and muscular endurance and the static bar hold and/or hand grip exercises for developing grip strength are particularly relevant. You can find lots of information about the physical requirements and the tests themselves on our website and the awareness day.

See you soon!
