Boise Fire Announces Bootcamp

In a press release yesterday (5/8), Boise Fire announced that they are looking to spark and inspire the next generation of Treasure Valley firefighters.

“We are grateful to be expanding Ignite to reach both men and women this year,” Boise Firefighter Kasey Hochmuht said in the press release.

“Last year it was great to watch participants not only pull hose, climb ladders, and force entry, but they also realized that this is a job they can do and have a meaningful career as a result.”

This is a great opportunity for potential candidates to get a taste of what it takes to become a Boise firefighter. But, what are the qualifications one needs to meet to become a Boise firefighter?
