If you have a pre-existing medical problem or a serious issue in your
background, do yourself a favor and find out early if it will interfere with
getting a firefighter job.
Situations like not just one but two DUI's. Knee surgery with scars. Back
surgery that would show in an X-ray (yes, they are going to X-ray your back)
and/or be part of your records with your doctor and insurance company.
If you have the slightest concern for a medical problem, have the leading expert in this field of medicine (not your
family doctor) evaluate your condition. If they feel you're fit for duty, have them give you a letter.
If you have a DUI, an arrest or other black mark on your record, see if it can
be expunged. For other potential problems in your background, have a
brief reasonable explanation of the situation.
