UWF Training Program 



The United Women Firefighters (UWF) has partnered with the New York Sports Club (NYSC), the Fire Foundation and the New York Women's Foundation to provide a training program for women candidates geared towards passing CPAT and getting physically prepared for fire academy. Any woman who is interested in being a firefighter in the FDNY can participate in the program.


We have firefighting and CPAT equipment and we work with you to identify your strengths and weaknesses so you can improve and pass all physical requirements needed to get on the job. You will be in an environment of other women candidates led by women firefighters. The program is also a valuable place to get your questions answered about the process of getting hired and any other questions you may have about what it's like to be a woman firefighter in NYC.


Please check out our Program Rules if you'd like to participate in our training program.
