    Lots of people will come up with questions like "Why do you want to be a firefighter?" and "What will it do to your family life with you being gone for 24 hours at a time?"

    I'd ask something that makes the candidate think a little. Something like "You're a First Responder/EMT/Paramedic [whichever your department is] and you're on your way to a chest pain call. On the way you encounter a bad wreck, with obvious severe injuries. Do you stop, or do you radio for another unit to take this, and continue to your original call?"

    One question that stumps a lot of people is "What can you bring to the department that we don't already have?"

    I like the questions like:

    Where do you see yourself in 3 years?

    5 years?

    10 years?

    What is cultural diversity and how does it affect us as FF? In the fire station? In the community?

    Why do you wish to leave your current job? Particularly if it is a fire job.

    Why should we NOT hire you?

    Response should be like' If there is someone else more qualified'. Occasionally it stumps them.
