2012 Firefighter Career Expos

Do you know what it takes to be a firefighter?

Hundreds of potential firefighter recruits had a chance to see for themselves at this year's Firefighter Career Expos held at Orange and Livermore CPAT Centers in April.

Sponsored by the California Fire Fighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee (CFFJAC) and its Commission to Recruit Women for the Fire Service, the Firefighter Career Expos are designed to give candidates - particularly women who may have never considered becoming a firefighter - an up close and personal look at a career with the fire service.
