Stage Two – Vision Assessment
Candidates must meet the vision requirements as outlined in Chapter Six of NFPA 1582: Standard on Comprehensive Occupational Medical Program for Fire Departments.
The vision assessment is NOT conducted by OFAI at our test facility. Candidates must take the vision assessment form (located on your Frontline Health and Performance Smartabase account) to an eye care professional of their choosing for completion and pay the applicable fees associated. Candidates may also have the option to utilize personal extended health care benefits, if available.
Candidates must submit the completed form in one PDF file to your Smartabase account. Once you are logged in, click the My Resources button located on the home page. Click on the resource titled Start Here and follow the instructions accordingly.
If you do not follow the instructions on the Start Here page in full, your vision form will not be processed.
OFAI will ONLY accept our vision form, and it must be stamped by your optometrist. Please DO NOT attach a business card – if a stamp is unavailable, please attach your paid receipt. Failure to submit correct documentation will result in your vision form not being processed. You may be required to return to your optometrist and additional charges may apply.
Please allow a minimum of three (3) business days for your vision form to be processed.
There are three certificates issued for Stage Two. Stage Two will be as follows:
- Stage Two: Vision Assessment (Two-Year Validity)
- Stage Two: Hearing Assessment (Two-Year Validity)
- Stage Two: Encapsulated Treadmill Test (Six-Month Validity)
