I don't know a thing about Nashville Fire. If the academy is anything like what I went through, expect a lot of push-ups, sit-ups, pull-ups, and cardio- including running (being able to run 3miles should be more than sufficient) and stairs. A lot of academies have also adopted crossfit into their training regimens.I hope to get a job with the Nashville Fire Department when I finish emt school and I'm just curious about how hard fire academy is? What do I need to do to prepare? I'm kinda in shape, but I'm still getting there.
Wait! :unsure:Not to direct you away from EMTLife, but you may find more specific answers to your question at Firehouse.com's forums.
