Don’t underestimate Oliver Lipinski because of his age – he already has an impressive level of knowledge that’s sure to make him an excellent firefighter.

Recognizing this about himself as they passed by a fire station, he let his parents know that he’d like to join the fire department. Lucky for the 3-year-old, there was a recruitment campaign underway, and his parents were happy to help him.

As is the case with any job, Oliver first had to put together a resume that proved he has what it takes to join the team. Using the information he gave his parents, Courtney and Chris Lipinksi, they put together a resume that listed his education, experience, and details on why he was so interested in pursuing this career.

On the final day of recruitment, Oliver boldly knocked on their door in full turnout gear and confidently let Lt. Andrew Wiersma know “I want a job” before handing him his impressive resume. In no time, he was shortlisted and called for an interview.

“Oliver is knowledgeable about fire engines and trucks, can list most parts on a ladder fire truck, has a basic understanding of hydraulics, does not play with ‘magic’ because it can start fires, and can recognize most letters and the sounds they make,” a news release from the Parksville Fire Department revealed. “He has completed all episodes of ‘Fire Safety with Roy’ and successfully completed volume one, firefighting coloring book.”

Despite this being his first job interview, Oliver impressed his potential employers with his ability to name all of the department’s fire trucks. Between this extensive knowledge and the fact that he lives within their fire protection area, Fire Chief Norris was happy to let Oliver know that he’s qualified for the 2034 recruit class as a junior member!

As part of his orientation, Oliver rode Ladder 49 (his favorite truck) and got a tour of the fire station. He was also given a red helmet, teddy bear, cookie, and was given a certificate recognizing his status as an official junior member.

“We were thrilled to receive Oliver’s resume, conduct his interview, and we all look forward to welcoming him to the 2034 recruit class as a junior member,” Chief Norris said.

Don’t forget to share the adorable start of Oliver’s journey as a firefighter with a friend.
