I am currently a Junior at the University of Iowa (live in elmhurst illinois). I am interested in becomming a firefighter after college. I really know nothing about the process, so if you could reply with a link or any kind of information that would be great.

What im really curious about are the tests both written and physical what type of material are you tested on, and what are the physical requirments. I took one fire science class over the summer (sprinklers and alarms) at COD. Is it necessary to have a fire science degree? I am also looking into Being an officer in the navy for 4 years first.. does military experience help in the hiring process?

Thanks,
