The CPAT is a sequence of events requiring you to progress along a predetermined path from event to event in a continuous manner. This test was developed to allow fire departments to obtain pools of trainable candidates who are physically able to perform essential job tasks at fire scenes.  Testing is done at our Fire Science East facility, 11319 S. Halstead Rd.,  Hutchinson, KS  67501.  For more information contact HCC Fire:  620-728-4460 or 728-4465.
