The Probationary Firefighter Checklist is an invaluable tool for ensuring that new firefighters have the necessary qualifications and training to perform their duties effectively and safely. The checklist helps to ensure that probationary firefighters are adequately prepared for the rigors of their job and protects them from potential liabilities stemming from a lack of knowledge or training. With this checklist in place, both fire departments and recruits can benefit by having clear standards for success.
