The San Bernardino County Fire Department expanded its Firefighter Apprentice Program earlier this month. This Limited-Term Firefighter Program is a great opportunity for those wishing to begin their careers in firefighting to gain first-hand, on the job experience.
By expanding the Firefighter Apprentice program, the County Fire Department will have an additional 76 firefighter apprentice positions available by mid-2012 that will respond to medical aids, rescues and other emergency and non-emergency situations. In 2011, 10 firefighter apprentices went on to continue their career in the fire service after developing their firefighting and medical aid skills.
If you or someone you know is interested in learning and experiencing firefighting duties firsthand, please visit the San Bernardino County Fire Department website to learn more about its firefighter apprentice program.
