    Default height?

    Okay, so I'm a 17 year old female standing at 4ft 11in. I'd like to become a firefighter. I need to know if there are any height requirements?

    I am not sure, as I have looked into this also, but it seems to really depends on the department.

    Theres a guy whos a phx ff who's 5'2", so I think as long as you can preform all the duties required of you without special assistance I would say theres no height requirement.

    My ex-wife was 4'11" and was an active volly with my department for several years. Her size was both an assest and hinderance at times.
