Here’s the FULL LIST of interview questions for the FIREFIGHTER INTERVIEW:

Q1. Why have you applied to join the Fire Service and what do you have to offer?

SUGGESTED ANSWER:

“Joining the Fire Service is something that I have wanted to do for many years now and I have been preparing for the selection process for some time. I believe that I would enjoy working in a community-focused service where the priority is helping other people, both through preventative work and reactive operational work.

Having researched the Fire Service extensively, I have been impressed and attracted to the shift from predominantly reactive work to prevention work in terms of Community Fire Safety. I enjoy learning new skills and keeping up to date with procedures and policies, and believe the Fire Service would be a career that I would be very much suited to.

I am a caring person who is comfortable working with people, regardless of their background, age, sexuality or gender. I keep myself physically fit and understand that this is an important aspect of the firefighter’s role. I want to become a firefighter with the Fire and Rescue Service because I believe I can make a positive difference to the team. I am enthusiastic, motivated, focused and driven and would love to work for a professional service that has such high standards.”

Q2. What do you understand about the role of a firefighter?

SUGGESTED ANSWER

“The two main areas of the firefighter’s role are responding to incidents as and when they arise, and also Community Fire Safety work, which involves looking for ways to reduce incidents. I understand that the role is based around the Personal Qualities and Attributes for the firefighter. This includes a commitment to diversity and integrity and also being open to change.

The Fire Service is a continually changing and improving service and it is important that firefighters embrace this. A firefighter must have the confidence and resilience to deal with highly stressful situations and be capable of working with all people, regardless of age, sexuality, gender or background.

Because firefighters carry out so much community work, they have to be effective communicators and be capable of solving problems as and when they arise. Also, because the Fire Service is a customer-focused service, the firefighter needs to be committed to delivering an excellent service. The role also includes training and maintaining competence through the Integrated Personal Development System.

Firefighters are also constantly looking for ways to reduce the risk of fire and providing advice to the public upon request. Maintaining an operational readiness is also key to the role, making sure that all equipment is serviced and ready for use. Having the ability to work as an effective team member is essential and having a good knowledge of Health and Safety is also important.”
