A&J Fire Extinguisher, a leading Brooklyn, New York-based fire extinguisher inspection and supplier company providing products and nyc extinguisher services for all of NYC’s fire protection needs, concurred with the FDNY’s fitness tips for “probies” preparing to enter the EMS Academy. According to FDNY representatives, training at the Department’s EMS Academy at Fort Totten in Queens is “serious business,” with physical training a major part of every probie’s day.
Prospective or current EMS candidates are advised to get themselves in shape before they enter the Academy, and as part of their daily schedule they will complete an hour and a half of physical training which encompasses intense cardio and calisthenics workouts.
To assist trainees in getting prepared, the FDNY EMS Academy physical training staff recommends individuals begin to develop healthy eating habits and portion control; work on their cardo two to three times a week at just below their maximum pace and always keep in mind when exercising that strength, conditioning and proper form is key.
Additionally, EMS Exam #9014 and EMS Trainee Exam #9075 candidates have been taking some time to learn about the Physical Agility Test (PAT) that they need to pass as part of the FDNY’s hiring process, a test that consists of four assessments and which is designed to ensure all candidates can properly perform the duties of an FDNY EMS team member.
