Firefighter Mile Agility Test

 

The Coshocton Civil Service Commission – Coshocton Fire Department will start using the FIREFIGHTER MILE agility test this year as part of the Entry Level Testing Procedure.

The Firefighter Mile is a nationally recognized standardized firefighter physical ability test designed to assess readiness for the physical demands of firefighting.

This procedure will benefit the candidate as several Departments currently use this program. For those taking multiple Written Tests, only one Agility Test is required as long as that agency recognizes the Firefighter Mile.

Currently the Ohio Fire Academy is the testing center. The tests are conducted once each quarter. The Academy will issue a card indicating success that is valid for one (1) year. They plan on having several more testing centers on board with-in the next year.

Any and all cost associated with this test is the responsibility of the candidate.
