The initial testing process will consist of two primary components: a traditional firefighter examination and a situational judgment test. Both will be administered in a paper-and-pencil format. The firefighter exam will assess job-related cognitive abilities, personality characteristics and behavioral traits. The situational judgment test may assess job-related skills associated with conflict resolutions, service orientation, initiative, integrity, team-orientation, and others.
