Attention: City of London Probationary Firefighter Applicants;
Re: * this message only applies to those candidates whom do not have a York University Firefighter Specific Physical Fitness Testing Certificate dated July 15th, 2018 forward.

Thank you for your interest in the City of London 2020 Fall Probationary Firefighter recruitment. We are aware that some candidates may be missing one of the minimum requirements, a York University Fitness certificate (July 15, 2018 forward), and are waiting for an opportunity to obtain your York University Firefighter Specific physical Testing in order to apply or complete your application for the City of London’s 2020 Fall Probationary Firefighter recruitment.

Earlier this week, Premier Ford announced that Ontario will remain under a State of Emergency until July 15th, 2020. As such, certain health & safety protocols will remain in place. We have spoken with the doctors at York University who run the fitness testing lab, and they are currently seeking an off campus facility in order to safely administer the fitness assessments. Please note that there is no guarantee they will be able to find a new temporary location, however they are doing everything they can to secure a new location. We are anticipating an update for a possible new location by July 3rd, 2020, and we are hoping they will be able to secure a temporary testing site in which to operate their testing

Should a new location be found in time to open up an alternate site, there will be several safety protocols in place in order to take the fitness testing, as such the doctors will be asking that those who will be taking the York U fit testing to sign a declaration. They are currently creating the declaration and we will forward to you on or after July 3, 2020.

We would ask that in the interim, you do not socialize in groups of more than 10, observe proper safety protocols such as frequent hand washing, social distancing and wearing a masks when social distancing is not possible per the current safety guidelines the Minister of Health as issued. Failure to do so, would prevent you from being able to take the fitness test and thus would preclude you from being able to apply to this recruitment.

We want to thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to ensure all Covid-19 protocols are adhered to and while trying to open up spots for the York U Physical Testing assessment. Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact a candidates support representative at Firefighter Recruitment Services of Canada Inc at: 1.877.757.FIRE (3473) or go to the website: for live chat.
