Experience in a trade before firefighting

Postby AKuhnreich » Mon Jan 25, 2021 9:41 am

Hi Everyone,

I was curious how important it is to have worked in a trade before applying to be a firefighter. I am currently a CPA accountant and I always wanted to become a firefighter but I suppose I took the safer option when I was applying to university.

I am now 26 years old and will be attending the fire academy during the summer. Once I complete the academy, would it be more beneficial if I apply for general labour positions for the year so I can have experience working with machinery/tools on my resume?

Thank you in advance, it is sincerely appreciated.
