Information and practice days

The first step in the recruitment process is attending an Information & Practice Day. Although not compulsory, it is highly recommended if you are seriously considering becoming a Career Firefighter. The day will cover:

  • What a modern firefighter does
  • A breakdown of the recruitment process
  • What the recruit’s course entails 
  • Equipment used
  • Opportunity to practice the Physical Pre-entry Test (PPT)
