In keeping with its mission to recruit, retain, and promote more women to the Fire Service, the California Fire Fighter Joint Apprenticeship Committee’s Commission to Recruit Women for the Fire Service encourages interested middle and high school female students to attend one of three weekend Fire Fighter Recruitment Fairs in April and May 2009.

In addition to fire department booths staffed by recruitment officers, other planned activities throughout the day include: interactive demonstrations of the Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT), “A Day in the Life of a Firefighter” video presentations, apparatus displays, and much more. These Fair activities are designed to welcome and encourage more students to enter this challenging and rewarding profession.
Please share this information with your middle and high school principals and counselors to share in their daily bulletin so that those female students in their schools that might have an interest in this dynamic career may attend. Organized school programs also will be welcome to participate.
