Being a fire fighter requires significant commitment from candidates and their families. In addition to undergoing a fire fighter recruitment training course, each member is expected to attend 4 to 8 hours of training each month once on the job. As well, there are numerous specialty courses held at various times during the year. Fire fighters also participate in fire prevention, public education and volunteer fund raising activities.
A fire fighter’s primary goal is to protect lives and to save property. This requires response to calls for emergency assistance, which may include fires, medical emergencies, motor vehicle accidents, shore base water rescue, and hazardous material incidents 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
