The Los Angeles County Fire Department has posted its firefighter trainee examination bulletin on its website and applications will be accepted from Wednesday, Jan. 21, at 1 p.m. until Friday, Jan. 23, at 1 p.m.

“We are expecting a large number of applicants, which will ensure that we are able to fill our firefighter vacancies to sustain the necessary level of emergency staffing in the communities we serve,” said Fire Chief Daryl L. Osby.
Last November, the Board of Supervisors passed a motion to create a strike team to expedite and oversee the administration of the firefighter trainee exam. This team consists of representatives from the County Equity Oversight Panel, the Department of Human Resources, the Office of County Counsel, Local 1014, and members of the Fire Department, including its Human Resources team.
“The strike team has met to ensure that our firefighter trainee examination process meets with Board approval and secures testing validity and confidentiality,” Osby said. “While we were already working to safeguard our examination process, we appreciate the collaborative efforts of the strike team.”
