Career Expo TOMORROW Connects Future Firefighters With Departments Around the State

As risk of fire and natural disasters grows in California, our state’s fire departments are looking for women and men who have the “right stuff” to become part of a tough, rewarding profession: firefighting.  Those who think they’ve got what it takes can get a glimpse of their future at the Firefighter Career Expo at the Firefighter Candidate Testing Center in Sacramento on Saturday, October 12 from 10am to 1pm.

Sponsored by the California Firefighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee (Cal-JAC) the Career Expo offers would-be firefighters hands-on practice with testing equipment, access to department representatives and a look at the life of a firefighter. This free event is open to all who may be interested in a fire service career. (CANDIDATE REGISTRATION LINK HERE)
