Why are you the best person for the job? What have you done to prepare yourself to be a firefighter? What makes me the best person for the job is my attitude and overall outlook on life. I strive to be the best I can. I’m motivated by my goals and aspirations. To become a firefighter is my goal in life, to fulfill this achievement would be a dream came true. I come from a family with high moral values so Id fit right in with the firefighter’s code of conduct and respect. I want what every firefighter wants the opportunity to save another’s life. To feel that gratification would mean the world to me. What I’ve done personally to prepare for the role of a firefighter is fire explores, volunteer work at fire stations, and currently taking classes at VVC to further my understanding about the fire department. Fire explores is a program developed by the fire department to train young adults, and let them experience life as a firefighter. Through explores we learn how to use SCBA’s, how to put it on, what its uses are for, and so forth. We also get hands on with all the tools firefighters use such as the hoses and mop up tools. This program gives me the ability to train and further understand about the department. Fire 100 is another thing I’m currently doing; it helps me understand what I need to do to become a firefighter. It also tells me what other careers the fire department offers. I get to learn how everything first started and why it’s important to us to learn. If we can’t learn from are past how can we make a better tomorrow. These are just a few things I’ve done to prepare myself in the fire department.
