Here we go...
OK- I will try to give you some info-
- The Ventura County FD just tested for entry
level FF so you wont see them again for a few
years. But LA City is hiring- www.ci.la.ca.us
- The competetion here for fire is simply
FIERCE! About 500 applicants for 1 job. Your
key is becoming a Paramedic. Most departments
here hire "Firefighter/Paramedics."
- Sorry, you simply cant "cross over" to
California. The CA State Fire Marshal's
FF1 standards are progressive and extreamly
high. Most people get that cert. from going
to a college academy aka "fireman factories."
No, IFSAC doesnt count. I know it sounds
like a crappy deal, but thats it.
You can get more job, hiring and Cali. local info.

Be sure he gets a Phenix helmet on his head when he gets hired.
