WENTZVILLE, Mo. (KSDK) - Strength, agility and overall physical fitness are just a few of the attributes you need to become a firefighter.

Wentzville firefighters showed NewsChannel 5's Pat McGonigle and Jennifer Blome some of the things they practice - from hitting the keiser sled to crawling through small spaces.

Pat also got a chance to climb a 75-foot ladder live on Today in St. Louis.
