The YMCA of Greater Moncton will close both of their fitness facilities as of January 6, 2021 based on the decision of the province of New Brunswick to revert the entire province to the Orange Alert Level due to the recent increase of positive COVID-19 cases.  We will remain closed until we return to the Yellow Alert Level
 

What is the PARE?
The Physical Abilities Requirement Evaluation (PARE) is an occupational test used to assess a person's ability to perform the physical demands of police work by simulating a critical incident of chasing, controlling, and apprehending a suspect. It requires you to be in good physical shape. You need to have a fit cardiovascular system as well as good muscular strength and endurance.
The evaluation consists of three stations.

  • Station 1 - Obstacle Course
    This simulates proceeding to the scene of a problem or occurrence.
  • Station 2 - Push/Pull
    This simulates having to physically solve a problem or occurrence.
  • Station 3 - Weight Carry
    This simulates having to remove an object or a person from the scene.
