Do you want to join the Bureau of Fire Protection as a Fire Officer 1? Well, you have to pass the Fire Officer Exam first! The Fire Officer Examination is open to qualified applicants and incumbent employees of the BFP who do not have a CSC 2nd-Level Eligibility, a PRC license, or the eligibility granted by special laws and CSC issuances. Passing the FOE will grant you the 2nd-level eligibility that is a major requirement when applying for a position in the BFP.
To help you pass the Fire Officer Examination with flying colors, we gathered review materials from different online sources. We do not guarantee a 100% success rate but it will definitely increase the chance of passing the FOE. As much as we try to ensure the veracity of this reviewer, we advise our readers to exercise due diligence. If you found any errors or entries that need corrections, do not hesitate to contact us by dropping a comment or through our Facebook page.
