Physical Agility Test

The Physical Agility Test (PAT) measures the capabilities of firefighter candidates along ten (10) job-specific areas including simulated ladder rack, hose carry, electric fan, fan placement, ladder raise, ladder halyard, body drag, foam bucket carry, simulated hose pull, and the truck ladder climb. These tasks are designed to test strength, stamina, endurance, agility, and ability to work at heights. Candidates must complete the Physical Agility Test within PF&R’s time standard of 8 minutes and 2 seconds.

Practice Physical Agility Information

Practice physical agility sessions will begin in October 2017. Details will be posted as they become available.
