Fire Department Hiring Process

            The Bakersfield Fire Department has a lot of history behind and has been around for over one hundred years. I decided to write on the Bakersfield Fire Department because this is the department that I would like to work for one day.
             The hiring for the Bakersfield Fire Department is a little harder than a lot of others in the state of California.

Then the top 30 applicants will be given a physical examination before they are accepted to the academy. After you complete the academy you have one year to complete the EMT 1 course, although most of the people who make it into the academy have already taken their EMT 1 class. To receive State Firefighter I certification, you must have attended a Firefighter I Academy and either be a Reserve Firefighter or volunteer firefighter for 12 months or a paid seasonal firefighter for six months.
