In addition, they respond to non-fire emergencies such as terrorist activity, hazardous materials incidents, vehicle accidents, water main breaks and utility emergencies. They must be physically fit and able to deal with people in crisis. Their work environment is oftentimes stressful and dangerous; therefore, the effective firefighter must be a critical thinker and an excellent communicator. Education in the field serves to produce a well-trained individual who is capable of handling the emergency they're facing.
