    Default Citizenship Question


    My name is Rick and i'm currently an EMT in LA County.

    My questions is this: I am a legal US Resident and am not currently eligible for US Citizenship (got to wait a few more years).
    I want to apply with the LAFD but I don't know their citizenship requirements.
    Do I have to be a US citizen to qualify?


    Edit: I accidentally made two threads. Would a moderator kindly delete the other one, or this one whichever. Tnx.

    By "legal US resident", do you mean "permanent resident"? A green card will suffice at most departments. There are still a handful of places that require citizenship, but most will not.

    Many job announcements will say the US Citizenship is required. However, if you do more research, you will find that they really meant "US Citizen or Permanent Resident". Read the fine print on the back of the application, or call the HR office to make sure.

    If you want to know what LAFD's rules are, call the LAFD. Don't ask a bunch of strangers on the internet. You should be able to find the number.
