    Default Oldest male and female to pass CPAT?

    I'm a little bit curious to know how old the oldest male and female in Texas are who have passed the CPAT physical test.

    I am a 51-year-old woman who is enrolled at the Texas Fire Academy. I am a lifelong athlete. I will not quit. I will not stop. They will not run me off. I would sooner pass out and have to be given EMS than to ever stop.

    My current sports nickname in kayak polo and whitewater slalom kayak racing is "Taminator."

    God bless y'all, your stories are very inspirational.

    Tam, I've seen men and a few women over 50 to 60 knock that sucker out in record time. They had been on the job over 30 years and were is great shape.

    I've seen youngsters, 24 to 30 who couldn't get to first base with it.

    Good luck to you and let us know how well you did!!

    Thank you, Mr. Johnee, I greatly appreciate your info, encouragement and support. I do have an artificial left knee that I got at age 48, the load limit on it is 40 lbs at a bodyweight of 175 lbs.

    Right now I weigh 141 lbs and I understand a complete set of bunker gear with SCBA weighs 70 lbs, so I'm good to go with carrying a baby or tools. Of course, in an emergency, I'll carry an adult in a fireman's lift, and for an Academy test, but it's good to know my limits. Probably want to get down to about 135 lbs to 140.

    Thanks and blessings,
    Tam

    Hi Tam, I live in Michigan not Texas and I am enrolled in training for my EMT-B and will be taking my Fire 1&2 this fall. I took the CPAT this spring just before my 60th birthday and I passed! I was rather proud of myself ( even my wife was impressed). Good luck. Eric.
