Qualities That A Proficient Fire Fighter Must Acquire


Due to the nature of firefighting, many of the qualities that a proficient firefighter must acquire include bravery and selflessness. This is true because firefighters must often put themselves in harm’s way daily to protect citizens from risk. Additionally, firefighters are constantly required to make quick decisions under pressure and without prior information about the situation.

It can be challenging for them to keep their cool amid high-stress situations as they might fear their own lives or family members. However, by staying calm under pressure, they can evaluate what is happening around them while making sure everyone else is safe. Below are described some additional qualities that a firefighter must-have.

  1. Competence –

Being a firefighter and knowing how to become a fire fighter can be tedious and difficult. However, these challenges give the job an air of importance and respect. A day as a firefighter can vary wildly; they might have to do daily upkeep tasks or combat a raging fire one moment, then drop everything to save someone who is drowning the next.

The fact that they save lives daily makes this job very rewarding, but the firefighters must also be competent in their abilities to pull it off. To become competent at their job, there are several courses and the certifications that firefighters are required to take throughout their careers.

  1. Communications –

Throughout a fire or any other kind of emergency, communication is key to helping others and keeping order. Being a firefighter requires significant communication skills, especially in the field where they are alone with no other civilians nearby.

The fact that they must make quick decisions under pressure requires them to be able to communicate quickly, especially with the fire department dispatcher. To be a good communicator, firefighters constantly have to maintain certain skills in addition to their mission requirements.

  1. Physical Stamina –

A person’s physical aptitude can greatly affect their ability as a firefighter. These persons must have sufficient physical stamina for their job to be prepared for any situation that comes up during the duration of their shift.

Through training, the firefighters can improve their physical capabilities to the point where they become physically fit enough to take on any challenge that might present itself. This type of physical conditioning enables them to have endurance and stamina when they have to wake up at 2 in the morning or go on a long response at 2 in the afternoon.
