Dear Mr. Torres,

I am seeking a position at your station as a Volunteer Firefighter and am supplying these documents for your consideration. You will find my resume attached along with my certification and physical examination to illustrate my health. I am fully prepared to undergo any other examinations, both educationally and physically, that may be required for this position.

My education includes an Associate’s Degree in Fire Science and while I have not yet had any practical experience, I am ready to learn the basics through your training program. I know that this is not a paid position but I am willing to work through the ranks in order to become a full firefighter. It takes a great deal of strength and good health to deal with all of the issues of being in this industry and I am mentally and physically prepared for this.

A fire department runs most successfully when a team attitude is taken and I am ready to be part of the team at your firehouse. I would like the chance to speak with you in person regarding my employment. I can be reached at any time by calling (111)-592-8231. Thank you for your time and consideration.
