    It would probably help to know where you are testing. I assume you are referring to a civil service exam. If so, I would guess Nashville FD since they recently began accepting applications. They have not done so for fire recruit in over a year.

    If the test is the same as it was when I took it close to 10 years ago, it isn't that bad. The written test was general reading comp, math, logic, etc. The agility test can test your strength. Aside from climbing an 80 ft aerial, I remember hitting a tire with a sledge hammer, a dummy drag, and dead weight carry.

    Default More info.

    Try to obtain the civil service study manual (you can buy one at most any book store). Cover the material in this manual and you'll be good to go on the written. I highly recommend this. The hardest part of our physical agility is leg strength/indurance. This test really wears on them with the ladder climb and 185lb. dummy drag. The stations that test upper body are not that bad. Study hard and make every point possible on the physical, there have been a ton of applicants and you'll need them. Good luck!!
