    In order to work for the DOD, you need to have fire certs that are IFSAC or ProBoard accredited. I believe that California certs are neither. It is possible to get in but you will be pretty low ranked (i.e. GS-3, which isnt much money). If you are a Paramedic it will be a little bit easier, becuase there are not many of us so I have heard of some bases waiving the DOD cert requirement to get medics in and then they give you X amount of time to get them.
