    Default LaCoFD Hiring?

    Does anyone have any aditional information or does anyone currently work for La County fire dept?

    Here is the job opening I applied for:
    https://sjobs.brassring.com/1033/asp...041&areq=404br

    It says 'open continuous' so i'm not entirely sure when their next academy or test is.

    Hi Fieronfire-
    LA County takes apps on an ongoing basis. They endeavor to inform those who've placed apps when they decide to take on another class. (I've heard rumors that people can get missed but don't know the exact circumstances) LA County is an awesome department that offers pretty much anything you can imagine in terms of career path. I would follow up with them periodically (say every few months) to see if they're doing anything with the list of applicants to make sure you're considered.

    Best Regards,

    Default Anybody on here currently in the process with LACoFD?

    Anybody on the list or waiting to start the academy, or even some LACoFD employees who know a thing or two about a thing or two have any update? Thanks!

    Academy 135 graduates on Dec 9th. from the thread on Californiafirefighter.com

    I did talk to someone who works for LaCo and said he heard rumblings of a test date soon but who knows.

    Yeah I heard rumors of writtens. I just don't know why they'd bother if they've got a bunch of guys already lined up. Something about an academy in spring focused in women and medics, but who knows. The greatest department in the world and the slowest hiring process! Sure keeps you anxious!

    Fill out an app and play the waiting game.
    This is an awesome department but myself and MANY others have put apps in year after year and have never been lucky enough to even take a written.

    Starting this thread back up because CAFF is going down, for anyone in LACoFD's process or that is about to be since they will be testing soon.

    Actually, if we direct some traffic over there they might stay open.

    If you are on here talking about california departments specifically, head over to californiafirefighter.com

    Keep the pirate ship afloat!
