It doesn’t matter if you are FDNY, fighting wildfires out in California, or a volunteer fireman in a small town. Firefighting is one of the most physically demanding and dangerous of all civilian occupations. So it’s no coincidence that becoming a fireman is one of the few jobs that require passing a physical test before even being considered a good candidate. 

When you have on all of your PPE, it weighs around 53 pounds. You never go into a building empty handed. Whether you’re grabbing some tools, like your ax, Halligan, or extinguisher, the amount of extra weight you’re carrying up and down stairs can be upwards of 100 - 150 pounds.  

You cannot have any extra weight on your own body if you plan on being a fireman, so your goal should be to get as strong as you can, pound for pound. Some demands of the job could be rescuing victims, raising ladders, handling charged hose lines, ventilating roofs, and forcing entry with heavy tools. And yes, this is still while you’re lugging around all of that extra weight.

During your training you should focus on movements that involve carrying or dragging objects for a distance. Incorporate movements that mimic the demands of the job i.e. stair climber, sled drags, deadlifts, and core exercises. Fit firemen are not only more productive on the fire scene but also less likely to suffer strains and sprains, which account for nearly all injuries to those in the profession.
