Becoming a Firefighter

Becoming a firefighter involves study, dedication, aptitude, and a dose of the right stuff. Unlike most professions, a firefighter will be required to put his or her life on the line at any moment. Thus, it’s absolutely imperative that training be rigorous in order to make responses to situations a matter of reflex.

Firefighters Bookstore has the collection that will guide aspiring firefighters through all aspects of applying for the job, training, and the first year as a rookie firefighter. The job requires more than you can convey in a book, but it all starts with knowing what’s expected of you and how things will unfold during the process of becoming a firefighter.
