    Accepting 150apps or closing on feb14th..

    Does anyone have any info on these guys? Is this full time similar to LA County FSA? Never heard much and haven't seen them around..

    Appreciate any info.

    I met this crew at the Rim Fire this year. Cool and solid guys. They are very similiar to the LA County FSA. If you want to get into that department as a fulltime career firefighter on a engine, this is the best way to go. Id say if you have the experience and you qualify, apply. Whats the worst thats going to happen, you get offered a job somewhere else or they say thanks but no thanks. Cant hurt to try.

    That's good to hear they were at the Rim, I know the FSA's were there too. I applied, I just got a little nervous when I googled "OCFA Handcrew" and saw them all wearing chin straps. Haha. Thanks for the info!

    haha thats a department policy. I met the FSA's also. some were cocky dbags and others were cool guys. But thats what you get with bigger departments. And so what they wear chin straps, safety first. yeah its not cool, but if they fell, at least their helmet would stay on. haha
