Dear Mr. Pettey,

I am a New Firefighter who is looking for a position with your fire department. I noticed that you had an opening at your firehouse and am submitting these documents in order to be considered for it. I have been a firefighter for more than six years and am only seeking this position because I relocated to your area.

In order to complete my dream to be a firefighter, I received a Bachelor’s Degree in Fire Science and have completed all of the training requirements of my past employer. I am in great physical shape and can handle the physical as well as mental demands of the job. My communication skills are superb and I can handle the stress without any breakdowns.

It takes a fully prepared team that works well together in order to have an effective firehouse. For this reason, I know that I would be a vital member to your team and that they would benefit from my presence. There are no normal work hours when fighting fires and I am prepared for all aspects of the job including the times that I will be on call. If you would like to call me in order to set up a time to meet, you can reach me at (333)-264-6831.
