Mr. Thomas Hannibal
Manager Human Resources
General Dynamics
89 Harborview Drive
Seattle, WA 77333


Dear Mr. Hannibal:

I am writing to express my interest in joining the General Dynamics’ firefighting team through a Firefighter position. My experience as a Firefighter has led to amazingly satisfactory feats and some not so pleasant.

Considering the fact that I had been working as a firefighter for seven years, I am quite responsive when it comes to performing fire suppression duties. I have the ability to respond to fire alerts immediately and can evaluate situations in terms of both medical needs and fire control requirements. My training in situation-appropriate extinguishing agents helps me in managing the source of the fire, and I have also been trained in using fire extinguishing equipment appropriately. Moreover, I have full and functional knowledge of administering CPR and First Aid duties and able to serve as a preceptor for paramedic trainees.

This opportunity will provide me to apply my training and skills in an area where public service is more eminent – which is why I am very excited about the possibility of working for General Dynamics. I will contact you next week to follow up and will be available at (000) 222-2222 to answer your questions.

Thank you for your time and consideration.
