Hey guys, I'm new to this forum and I live in Los Angeles, so the department I would like to work for is LAFD

Male
16 Years of Age (Currently in high school, on way to graduating)
Asian-American

I would just love to know about the best paths to becoming a firefighter. Are there courses to take in college? Do I even need college? How long is the process of becoming a firefighter? How much do they get paid starting in Los Angeles?

I'm just a really curious guy and if you guys would help I would be very happy.
Please answer all my questions thanks a lot.

Just wanna know what's the best way to becoming a firefighter.
