The requirements to become a fire-fighter in the Philippines are similar to those in many other countries. It is wise to volunteer first to get an idea of the role you will have to play once fully trained as a fire-fighter.

Fire fighters, historically known as firemen, are rescuers that have undergone extensive training, primarily to put out hazardous fires that threaten civilian populations and property, to rescue people from car incidents, collapsed and burning buildings and other such situations. The increasing complexity of modern industrialized life with an increase in the scale of hazards has created an increase in the skills needed in firefighting technology and a broadening of the firefighter-rescuer's remit. They sometimes provide emergency medical services. The fire service, or fire and rescue service, also known in some countries as the fire brigade or fire department, are part of the emergency services along with the police and ambulance service.

Firefighting and firefighters have become ubiquitous around the world, wild land areas to urban areas, and on board ships.

According to Merriam-Webster's Dictionary, the English word "firefighter" has been used since 1903. In recent decades it has become the preferred term, replacing the older "fireman", since many women serve as firefighters, and also because the term "fireman" can have other meanings, including someone who sets or stokes fires - exactly the opposite of the firefighting role.

Fire control or fire fighting consists of depriving a fire of fuel, oxygen, heat and/or the chemical chain reaction that is necessary to sustain itself or re-kindle also known as the four components of the fire tetrahedron. Firefighters are equipped with a wide variety of equipment to accomplish this task. Some of their tools include ladder trucks, pumper trucks, tanker trucks, fire hose, and fire extinguishers. Very frequent training and refresher training is required.

Structure fires may be attacked, generally, either by "interior" or "exterior" resources, or both. Interior crews, using the "two-in, two out" rule, may advance hose lines inside the building, find the fire and cool it with water. Exterior crews may direct water into windows or other openings or against other nearby fuels exposed to the initial fire. A proper command structure will plan and coordinate the various teams and equipment to safely execute each tactic.

Well if you really want to become a firefighter than join as a volunteer in order to figure out what it really is. And then get EMT certification and join some fire academy for proper training.
