The Los Angeles County Fire Department recently announced new job openings for those who seek to help during emergencies.

LACoFD officials posted requirements for the firefighter trainee position, as well as important dates.

“We are pleased to officially announce the posting of the Firefighter Trainee exam bulletin to recruit new team members who will join us in carrying out our daily mission of protecting lives and property in the communities we serve,” said Los Angeles County Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby.  

The firefighter trainee would participate in basic emergency medical services and the fire fighting training program, which involve both field and classroom instruction prior to being appointed a firefighter, according to LACoFD officials.

The position also requires incumbents to have an EMT certification or license, unlike the previous posting a few months ago which required a paramedic license.

Although no experience is required, those who apply must possess the ability to provide quality care to people in need during emergencies involving medical issues, fires, and other emergency and non-emergency situations.

“While we anticipate this exam will be competitive, we commend and thank our applicants for embarking on this exciting journey towards a rewarding career as a Los Angeles County firefighter — a career that provides fulfillment, purpose, and excellence,” said Osby.

The LACoFD will begin accepting applications on Wednesday, June 26, 2019, at 1 p.m. until Friday, June 28, 2019, at 1 p.m.

Those looking to apply can find more information on the job bulletin website.
