  • Question about physical agility test while Active Duty

    Hello my name is John, I'm 21 years old and currently Active Duty in the US Army. I recently applied to a local department back home and am set to take their written exam this July. However, their physical agility tests are scheduled for the August-September time frame. I am not sure if I will be able to make it home for the physical test due to training.

    Is there any laws/rules/regulations that require a department to make exceptions for active duty military members trying to test with them? Whether that be allowing me to take the physical at an earlier/later date, or at another time when I am able to make it home on leave or once I ETS and am back home for good? I know this department has conducted interviews over the phone with guys currently deployed. I contacted the department and they said there are no laws/rules regarding this, I am just double tapping the subject with fellow vets that may have an answer.

    Any information on this topic would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you, stay safe.

    I know several reservists that tested for the City of Philadelphia over the years that had to wait for the next academy class upon their return.

    Asking on here- a virtual firehouse kitchen full of firehouse kitchen lawyers from all over the USA will only get you heartache.....Study the laws for the State and Municipality concerning this matter for yourself.
