Dallas Fire-Rescue Recruiting CPAT​



The Dallas Fire-Fire Rescue Department uses the Candidate Physical Agility Test as part of our application process. We offer a ten-week mentorship program to prepare applicants for the test. However, it is recognized that some individuals may be capable of passing CPAT without participation in this program. These individuals may excuse themselves from participation in the mentorship program upon the receipt by the fire department of a written and signed waiver, acknowledging that the fire department made the program available and that the candidate knowingly and voluntarily waived participation in the orientation and practice sessions. If you do not wish to participate in the Mentorship Program, you must fill out the Waiver of Practice Form and submit it to Dallas Fire-Rescue Recruiting at 5000 Dolphin Rd, Bldg A, Dallas, Tx 75223. If you do wish to participate in the Mentorship program, you must complete the Mentorship Program Liability Waiver and submit to Dallas Fire-Rescue Recruiting at 5000 Dolphin Rd, Bldg A, Dallas, Tx 75223. These forms can be found here:
