“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.” Colin Powell
There is truth in this statement, and for a potential candidate to task before their questionnaire the prospective fire department they are applying for they need to know the following. What history does this fire service have from the past and understand the history of where the fire service came before where we are today. In order to achieve the goal of where the fire service will be tomorrow. One of the resources is learning about fatalities, injuries and firefighter close calls and The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports. It is important to know about ones job or vocation before individual becomes it. These two website are excellent resources from the potential candidate all the way up to the chief.
