Reach For The Firefighter Badge:

  • By Steve Prziborowski, Deputy Chief and Chabot College Fire Technology Instructor

This book is intended to take over from where my first Firefighter preparation gook "The Future Firefighter's Preparation Guide," left off. That book was intended to provide the future Firefighter with a road map of what to do when starting out the journey of becoming a Firefighter. This book is intended to provide more focus on what to expect and more importantly, how to be successful at the firefighter testing process, which can vary from department to department.


This book will help future Firefighters by providing a road map of how to best navigate the Firefighter testing process so that they are successful in obtaining a position in the best career I am so fortunate to be a part of, a career in the fire service! If you have prepared for the position of Firefighter by doing many of the things I suggested in "The Future Firefighter's Preparation Guide" and also following the suggestions within this book, your chances for success will greatly increase!
