Physical Agility Test

Twice a year, the DFD holds a Physical Agility Test at Station 1 (Activity Center).  This test is for prospective firefighters.  All 7 elements are designed to be relevant fire-fighting maneuvers and passing this test in less than 6 minutes and 30 seconds is the first required step towards joining our department.  Taking the test does not constitute a commitment for any participant.   Joining us for a physical ability test night is a great way to meet current members of the department and have questions answered.  Click HERE for the date of the next PAT.
