by Dean Guccione on March 15, 2017. In this video, Chief Dean Guccione discusses a new and different method that a few fire departments are using to interview their firefighter candidates. It's called the FOAM method of interviewing. Firefighter Oral Assessment Mechanism is a video based style interview where you're shown a video scenario and then have to respond in real time, as though you are talking to a real person. You usually have about 40 seconds for your response, so this type of interview requires significant preparation to do well. Enjoy!
