What does a guard physical entail?

Individuals being offered a job as a merchant guard in Colorado Springs may be asked to complete a pre-placement physical to determine if they are in good physical condition, of sound mind, emotionally stable, and able to perform guard duties. Some of these duties include:

  • Patrolling
  • Locking doors
  • Checking for intruders
  • Reading identifications
  • Detaining individuals if necessary

What is the importance of police & firefighter physicals?

Given the variety of elements that police officers and firefighters encounter on any given day, their physical requirements are more complex than traditional physical exams can measure. Firefighters and police officers working in Denver and the surrounding areas need to maintain the highest standards of physical fitness to make sure they’re able to perform their jobs safely and without introducing illness to the citizens they protect.
