“I really enjoyed the overall coordination of the testing and the steady flow of the day. I am very happy I was successful and the orientation really did pay off! The testing is a very good baseline of how fit a firefighter needs to be and I will be maintaining this level of fitness throughout my career. I am also happy about the constructive criticism and will be making the needed adjustments for next time.”
Joshua Chassie, Fire Fighter Candidate

“I wanted to let you know the whole process was really well run on your end! I have done many of these types of testing days in the past at other facilities and it’s usually a nightmare. Tests followed by long intervals of waiting around – never knowing where to go next…Saturday was a breeze – the staff was super helpful and while I hope to not have to do this process again, if I do, I hope it’s through Firefighter Services of Ontario!”
Donald Owens, Fire Fighter Candidate
