Enjoy a flexible work schedule 

firefighter recruitmentsNot a fan of a 9-to-5 work schedule? Being a firefighter allows for a 24-hour shift work schedule, working 4 days on and 4 days off. Some departments are adopting a 24-hour shift schedule with 24 hours on and 48 hours off.   With a flexible work schedule like this, your downtime activities can really come in handy for family responsibilities or pursuing your other life passions. If your goal is to be considered during the firefighter recruitment process, hire a firefighter interview coach to help you shine during the behavioral interview.

Take the time to prepare for the interview to achieve your dream job; Your futures success is in your hands!

Work in a physically active profession 

The job of a firefighter demands that you maintain in top physical condition throughout your career and many departments offer fitness training in their work schedules.  A career in firefighting will keep you active. Health and wellness programs are a high priority in this profession and mandatory fitness training is generally the norm.  You will need to be able to fight fires, handle heavy mechanical tools at motor vehicle accidents, and contribute in many other physically demanding rescue situations to be valued as a competent firefighter.   It’s hard to find another profession that compares to the stamina, endurance, and strength training you will require being a firefighter. 

Receive job security and benefits

There will always be a need for firefighters. When you work as a firefighter, job security is something you can feel good about.  Plus, you will receive comprehensive health insurance and retirement benefits to help you prepare for the future. 

If you want a secure career with great benefits and the personal rewards that go along with it, joining the fire service is a smart decision.  Are you looking for an exciting and rewarding career in firefighting? Destiny Career Planners can help you reach your goal of becoming a firefighter.
