Crossthread from /fit/ for more application-based advice

My local town is looking for volunteer firefighters, and this is something I very much want to do. I'm 6'5 and large, I want to give back to my community and be of service to others. To do what Woods said, to be willing to do what others cannot.

I have a good mindset for this position. I approach things very tactically and with energy directed where it's needed- a real almost polarized 'N' type- and many people confirm that I'm one of the best drivers anyone's ever seen at 18, good ability at knowing the situation around me and seeing what could go wrong. (From flight sims for the past 11 years.)
I'm very good at supporting others so that they can achieve their own assignments faster, and building everyone else up for better performance. And I'm anal about communication, good at it.
(I'm pretty sure I can get a reference from my old Sup, who I'm on very good terms with, as to these things. He was ex-military, and I'm probably close to military in my mindset.)

What kind of fitness requirements do you think they will require for me to be available, and how hard would it be to get there? I'm wanting to start training very soon. I'm strongfat right now but I do a lot of physical work for a living, 5 days a week, 4.5 to 5 hours a day. Cardiowise, I think I'm probably close.

Thanks.

Well in my country the basic fire fighter test is 2km run pull ups and push ups .

If I had to.
I have done research but never found specifics, that's why I'm here.

>2km run pull ups and push ups.
You don't sound very coherent.

From this it
>implies
that the requirements are that you be able to do a pull up and a push up.

This is murica, I don't think it's that bad. I've heard from /fit/ there are volunteers who look like walking heart attacks already, the dept. was desparate enough to put out a big banner for recruitment.
