Please refer to the National Fire Protection Association Standard on Comprehensive Occupational Medical Program for Fire Departments (NFPA 1582, Chapter 6). Our medical requirements are taken directly from these criteria.
If you have a specific question pertaining to one of these criteria that you are unsure of after reviewing the document, consult your family doctor. We are not able to provide you with answers to specific medical questions. Your physician is the best resource for information on your personal health. We encourage you to book a complete examination with your physician before you decide to submit a firefighter application to identify and/or discuss any conditions that may affect your ability to perform the job of a firefighter. Note:
This will not substitute for the comprehensive medical/physical examination conducted by an independent medical provider in Stage 5 of our recruitment process.
