Welcome to Windrush Fire Coaching. We aren’t like the other guys... You won’t be receiving a copy and paste resume from someone who's never been on a fire truck. Windrush Fire has programs that are built to take a deep dive into who you are, where you've been and what you need to work on to make your dream a reality. We want to get to know you. At Windrush we know that successful candidates are prepared for applications both mentally and physically. That's why we offer specialized coaching for both fitness testing and application preparation.
It's important to realize that successful candidates prepare for the interview before they receive the interview request. If you are scrambling to prepare stories and answers a week before that critical day, you're already under prepared. Interview prep should be done once candidates have completed OFAI and are in the application stage. That week in between interview request and interview should be spent on learning the department, not learning about yourself and how to speak eloquently under pressure. Windrush isn't about preparing you with 'the questions', our goal is to prepare you for all fire interviews. This takes work, and dedication to excellence, but always leads to success. How bad do you want it? Let's get after it.
Packages are listed below. If you have any questions please feel free to email us.
Additional hours can be purchased upon request.

With Windrush Fire Coaching, you’re more than our client. We offer continuing contact and advice during the recruitment process for Mentorship clients. We know how it feels to be at a dead end, and unsure what you’re doing wrong or where to go next. Included in your package are phone sessions that you can use at any time during your application process. You receive three additional hours that you can book together or one hour each separately. Some candidates use this time to prepare for a second interview, some use it for an interview with a different department, some use it to prep for OFAI recertifications, some use it for general advice and encouragement. Everyone’s journey is unique and we offer this flexibility to suit your needs.
Cost for the Mentorship Package is $1500
Please note: All minimum qualifications for hiring (DZ, EMR, 1001, 472, OFAI 1-3) should be completed.

"Windrush Fire was an integral part of my journey to become a firefighter. So much of the path requires an intimate knowledge of the process and the job to have the opportunity to interview, and secure an offer. Windrush Fire was an extremely worthwhile resource in this process. It allowed me to put my best foot forward at every step, and gave me the confidence that I was on the right path, and had what it takes. It allowed me to present myself in a way that made me a desirable applicant for any fire service that I applied to, and ensured that I tailored each application to highlight what that specific department was looking for. I cannot think of a single thing that I did during my period of applying that had as significant of an impact as hiring Windrush Fire."

"I was new to the OFAI experience and am so thankful for Jess' help. She provided specific tips and workouts to make my first attempt successful. I got lucky and got a date way earlier than I expected for my Stage Three so had limited time to prepare and couldn't have done it without the evolution's we went through. She was very accommodating to my schedule and her equipment was geared towards every aspect of FPAT and technical skills so I felt confident going in with the prep work we did. Thanks so much and would recommend her to everyone and have!!"

Thank you very much for your services and helping me reach my dream goal in becoming a career firefighter"
