    Default question on getting hired

    So ive been wanting to join the fire department for a long time now. Its been a job i wanted to do sence my grandfather was a assistant chief so he had high influience on me joining. Problem is i have bipolar syndrom but i am medicated. So would that keep me out of the firedepartment like it does with the military,pilot,police etc. Thanks to anyone who can answer this

    Tough one... If if keeps you from military and police it would more than likely disqualify you from a firefighter position. In indiana you have to pass a mental evaluation. In that they do ask if you have prior disorders and so forth. Plus it's an all day test, 900-1,000 some odd questions. Plus a meeting with a head doctor. It's a lot to go through.. I would call your local department and ask.. Be vague on how you ask it though.. If it doesn't disqualify you you don't want them to "know" who you are..
