Video of the «Paolo from Tokyo» channel.

This is a day in the life of a Japanese firefighter working in Tokyo. In Japan, the fire department operates around the clock. You can watch the entire 24-hour day in the life of a typical Japanese firefighter in this video.

To become a firefighter in Tokyo, candidates must pass an exhaustive Japanese fire service recruitment exam. This exam is held only once a year. Looks like an interview. After the interview, candidates take a written exam. The number of vacancies for this specialty is usually limited, so it is quite difficult to become a Japanese firefighter. In 2020, only 7% hired, that is, this is only 1 out of 14 candidates.
