Hi! I'm Asif, JobTestPrep's Firefighter Exam expert. If you need any help, reach out to me at:

The Ergometrics FireTEAM test is a firefighter assessment test used by fire departments nationwide. These departments use this test as a tool in understanding the abilities of those applying, ultimately assisting them in making proper hiring decisions.

Our FireTEAM PrepPack™ is customized according to the topics that appear on the actual exam. There is, however, one major difference: the FireTEAM exam is video-based, while our questions are text-based. Regardless, the written materials have been shown to be just as effective in stimulating the learning process and improving test scores overall. Using our practice tests, answer explanations and tips will contribute significantly in helping you pass the FireTEAM successfully.

FireTEAM Entry-Level Exam Format 

The FireTEAM Entry-Level test is one of the most popular firefighter entrance exams. This is mostly due to its interactive nature; the real test includes many video-answer components where you watch videos and then answer questions based upon what you saw. Our exclusive FireTEAM-style PrepPack™ comes in a written format to give you the most comprehensive practice possible.  

The test is made up of four distinct parts, each is detailed below:


Human Relations 

The human relations section of the FireTEAM is a situational judgment test used to assess your reaction to different scenarios often encountered during firefighter service. Your responses can measure a variety of interpersonal skills, e.g. how well you deal with civilians and colleagues at the scene of a fire, or the judgment calls you will make reacting to the scenarios you find yourself in.

Math Test 

Mathematics are fundamentally used to calculate how much water is left in the truck’s tank, how much water flows through the hose, what length of hose to use, and so forth. The math you are tested on will be basic, however, making calculations and problem-solving are both sought-after firefighter skills.  



Reading Test

Prior to leaving to the site of a fire, you must read and understand the initial incident report. This report will either appear on an LED scroller in the firehouse or on the in-vehicle computer. 
This segment should not be confused with a reading comprehension test. Instead, you will be required to complete sentences by choosing between four words. 

Mechanical Reasoning

Firefighting takes basic mechanical aptitude knowledge to understand how to fight fires effectively. For example, mechanical and electrical skills can also help you recognize and solve certain issues that may arise while using firefighting equipment.
