Fire 1 is an approved FireRanger WFX-FIT testing agency.

Type 1 Wildland Fire Fighters must be physically fit in order to fight wildland fires safely and effectively, as well as to avoid injuries and recover quickly. In particular, they must have suitable levels of aerobic fitness, muscular strength and endurance.

The WFX-FIT is a valid job-related physical performance standard used to determine whether an individual possesses the physical capabilities necessary to meet the rigorous demands encountered while fighting wildland fires.

There are five (5) components to the WFX-FIT: a screening component and four (4) performance components.

WFX-FIT is completed as a timed circuit. All performance components must be test together.  Fire fighters must be able to complete the test within 14 minutes and 30 seconds in order to be eligible for national exchange.


Pre-screening measures

Pre-screening includes:


You must arrive at the testing site with your completed PAR-Q+, Informed Consent for WFX-FIT and Release of Results documents.


Your resting blood pressure will be taken on site. If it is higher than 144/90 mmHg, you will need to provide a doctor’s note clearing you to take the test. If you know from a previous test that your blood pressure is high due to anxiety, you can arrive at the testing site with a note from your doctor that clears you for heavy exercise.


REMINDER:  YOU MUST HAVE GOOD RUNNING SHOES.

If they are too worn on the bottom you will NOT be allowed to participate in the testing until you have safe footwear.
