    Cool Difference between LA County and LA City

    Hey guys, just interested in the two departments and wanted to know, well, what exactly is the difference between LA County and LA City fire departments? Is there a difference? If so, please elaborate.

    Thanks guys!

    i'm wondering the same thing.

    it seems like LAFD is the more prominent department here on the boards. maybe it's because la county isn't hiring now?

    is the lafd more prestigious than the county?

    also, is the pay comparable?

    In my 33 years with the County I have seen about 20 guys come to the County from the City. And they were very happy about doing it. None that I heard of that went to the City
    Pay about the same, I understand the County retirement is better.

My dream and I hope you don't find this too crazy is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."
