The RM of Swift Current Fire Department (RMSCFD) wants to know if you have what it takes to brave the blaze.

They are recruiting and looking for people who meet the requirements and standards to become a firefighter.

Louis Cherpin, Fire Chief of the RMSCFD, explains how individuals can apply.

"All you need to do is go down to the RM of Swift Current, talk to the wonderful ladies in administration there, they'll give you a document that says everything that you need to do," explained Cherpin. "From there, it's kind of like an application form. You bring it back to the RM office, the girls give it to me, and from there, I communicate with you." 

A couple of major factors for the job are that it is physically demanding, with two physio and cardio tests yearly. They also do a lot of on-the-job training, so attitude and effort play a big role in the selection process. Also, it's important to have the availability to be able to respond during work hours.
