Those who choose it as their career will sometimes have no choice but to put their lives and personal safety on the line for the safety and well being of their community and its’ citizens. Firefighters must be willing to perform hazardous tasks under emergency conditions, which may require strenuous exertion under such adverse conditions as smoke, heat and cramped conditions. Firefighters may also face working conditions, which involve such events as chemical spills, explosions, floods, and electrical hazards.
Persons wishing to become firefighters should have the ability to work as part of a team. Teamwork is an essential part of the job because it reduces the potential for injuries and loss of life, as well as increasing the effectiveness of handling emergency situations.
