Volunteer Firefighter Application -

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Dropped off as of last Friday. i hear back on the 30th. its painful waiting! Waiting to hear back. Next step- interview. Second step written exam. Final step - CPAT.

I'm tired of hearing people say oh advanced cross fitters would have no problem with that! This is what firefighters do. Not everyone can do it. Hell I knew I had it in me. I finally passed the CPAT after 4 attempts on August 13 2012 around between 1330-1345. I know the details because it was that big of a deal to me. My goal if I have to retake it is 9:30. Someday maybe in 2014 I want to re-certify at like 9:20 or 9:00 and that is quick for a girl!

Ah! I'm so nervous and excited! I'm finally almost there, almost almost!!!!! Now if I could just figure out how I could do the FEST program for two years. I know people do it working full time jobs, or even part time jobs!? I have to work a job that is why I do not know how it can be done, I know if there is a will there is a way. Even if I am the oldest one there doing the program 2 years from now at the age of 30, I will do it!!!!

  Gook luck with your exams. It sounds like you have worked hard for this. Having a couple of friends who are firefighters I can attest to the fact that is is not easy to pass the CPAT. If attitude will get you there you have already passed with honors.
