    Default Marion Fire Department Test info

    Does anyone know what the physical test for the Marion fire department consists of? I read on their website that they are testing in Spring 2008, and I wanted to make sure I am physically ready for the test.

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    Default Thanks in advance!

    FF2160:
    Thanks for checking into it for me. Believe me, I'm not holding my breath on getting hired ANYWHERE! I'm going to give it my best effort and let the chips fall where they may. I'm 28 now, and I realize that my window of getting hired somewhere is getting smaller by the day. I'm still working on my FF2, and I only have a First Responder license thus far, so I have work to do.

    I should have started walking down this career path earlier!

    Know what ya mean about starting too old, but none the less I am happy doing what I am doing, the last 2 guys marion has hired paid thier own way thru ISFI fire academy previous to being hired.

    Default good luck?

    Just wandering, but I was planning on applying at Marion. But why do you say good luck getting hired there? Are they just not hiring right now?

    Default upcoming test

    Does anyone plan on testing for Marion? I noticed in the paper that it is coming up very soon. If so, can someone possibly let me know what the physical test requirements are? I have been working out in preparation for testing, but I'd like to see if I'm where I need to be.

    Thanks!

    2160, why do you say "good luck" at getting hired in Marion? I know it's not a huge department, but do you know something we don't? We don't want to waste our time testing if the chances are slim to none!
