    Default Orange County Fire

    I just applied to OCFA yesterday, and I will hopefully be taking the written test next month. I live in Milwaukee, WI so I don't know too much about OC. Any advice about the test, process, or department itself? Thanks.

    It is an open test, so if you applied you will take the written. This test was only open for 2 days, so the number of applicants should be less then normal.

    It is like any fd test. Written, oral, agility and final oral. 6000 will apply and they will hire about 20. Keep those fingers crossed.

    If you got a reply acknowledging your application, you will get invited to the written. OCFA is doing 4 phases of testing throughout the year from what I've heard so it's a little different from last year. I'll see you there, good luck.

    I heard the reason for the 2 day filing period was to get less applications. On previous tests they were getting 6000 + and only the top 8% went to the oral. With this new method, I am hoping they will recieve far less applications and the odds of going to the interview will increase.

    My written is on June 28th. anyone have a different date?
