The Town of Oakville is looking for new Probationary Fire Fighters to join the Oakville Fire Department. Working in an Incident Command System, the Fire Fighter’s role is to protect life and property through firefighting, emergency medical and other types of emergency incidents, often performed under conditions, which require strenuous physical exertion. Fire Fighters are also expected to provide excellent customer service as well as being leaders in public fire safety education.
Fire Fighters are expected to maintain a high standard of professionalism, solve problems, work as part of a dynamic team and possess excellent interpersonal and organizational skills. Teamwork is very important; Fire Fighters live and work together in close quarters throughout their 24-hour shift. This requires all team members to depend on each other to perform their duties successfully whether having to share routine tasks at the fire station, providing services at an emergency scene, or providing service assistance to other agencies and/or the public.
