A work day in a firefighter’s life will consist of combating fires engendered by arson, natural disasters or accidents. These are highly trained professionals who provide fire suppressing services and may also aid paramedics in their activities and attempts to save victims of fires.

Firefighters are required to possess a high school diploma at the very minimum but some employers prefer people with a degree in fire technology. Since this is a highly physical job, firefighters go through rigorous training and are tested both physically and in theory before being tagged as fit for the job.
