    I just had my oral interview yesterday. They asked me 2 questions.
    Why do you want to be a firefighter?
    Where do you see yourself in 20 years?

    Just be yourself. I was offered employment that day. I still have the PT and psyc. test but I am as good as gold.

    Thumbs up Oral Board

    Here are a few questions they may ask you, just have a conversation with them don't tell them what they want to here just be honest AND EXITED TO BE THERE, & most of all smile. Write YOUR answers to all of these questions on paper and go over them in front of a friend or family member and see what they think. If it sounds bad to them it will sound bad to the department you are testing with.
