          They said at the test that the physical test would take place on september 8th and 9th, thus I am assuming that they will contact us via e-mail, considering snail mail would allow only a week to make arrangements to get down to chesterfield. Also, any idea what the SCBA portion of the test is about, all the info I could find is that they have you walk around a room in a blacked out mask for five minutes. details?

            From the looks of it its just what you said walking around with a black out face piece.

            There is a video on there website linked here :

            My thoughts were the same with email, but so far everything else has been through regular mail they may keep doing it that way. Don't know though.

              SCBA Event - The candidate will don turnout coat, helmet, self-contained breathing apparatus face piece with covered lens, and self-contained breathing apparatus backpack without regulator assembly. The candidate will be led into the class A building and instructed to walk around in a designated area within the structure for a period of five minutes. The candidates face piece and equipment must remain on for no less than five minutes.

              Pass or Fail.



              Looking at the scores there is a lot below the norm of 85.

                I read that information on the website, that is where the confusion lies. Is there nothing else involved other than walking around?

                  Confusion? I don't see any confusion here. It is pretty simple.

                  I take that you haven't done this before or even as a company training event?

                  The face piece is covered. You are in a room that you have never been in before. You can see anything and only all you can do is feel.

                  We do this a lot with new applicants, new hires at the academy and also with company training.

                      Easy bud, the man was trying to point out there shouldn't be nothing to this part of the test. It is a common scba/face piece testing procedure in Virginia. Plus he has if not wrote the book on much of the agility testing in this State and also for his department where he is a Chief Officer. Formerly the Chief of Training of his Department.

                      Either you can do this part of their version of the cpat or not.

                      I think that there are barriers in that room so the applicant would feel their way around. It's not a room where you have to crawl under and over items. Basically it is a test to see if the applicant is claustrophobic or not. Probably also to see if the applicant came overcome complete 'blindness' in a room they never been in under control conditions.


                      They have a certain area that they must remain in as the description indicates.

                        Its all good man, I was just joking around. No disrespect intended. Is it possible also that it might be looking to see how much air you suck down in 5 minutes after completing the other components of the test?

                          It says that a failure in the test is removal of face piece..... Also as it states above SCBA with out regulator I'm gonna assume that the candidate is not on air.


                          And to clarify a earlier question if you have been chosen to advance to the physical ability test you will get a phone call followed by a email.
