Los Angeles County Fire Department hiring

by Chris Sorensen |

The Los Angeles County Fire Department is recruiting for the first time in seven years and expects overwhelming response from around the county, the country, and even the world.

During the LACoFD's last recruitment in 1997 they drew 19,000 applicants, said department spokeswoman Kristina Hajjar. This time they expect at least 30,000 applicants.

According to a department press release, applications will only be accepted for a three-day period from December 2 through 4, 2004, 8 a.m. until 5 p.m., at six locations throughout the county.

The official Fire Fighter Trainee examination bulletin and employment application are posted online by the County at www.lacofd.org.
