    Why would anyone on this forum have any idea what your department requires for a junior physical? Ask your department. Duh.

    The Code is more what you'd call "guidelines" than actual rules.

    Many, if not all states require a basic physical to obtain working papers for part time jobs for underage persons- this includes Junior Firefighters. If I remember correctly it is just a basic physical- turn your head and cough, lung sounds, general muscle condition, blood pressure, eyesight, etc. I wouldnt worry unless you are severely overweight, have high BP or another condition that could limit physically exhausting work.

    And Marshall is correct, no one on here would know what the requirements of your department and/or their physician is. Learn what the chain of command is at your organization, and properly use it to ask a question like this.

    In most cases the consequences are not very severe. There are very few cases of anyone actually experiencing a fatal event more than once.
