WFPA Set for February 22, 2020

By Kaelyn Floyd

Annually, the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) hosts the Women’s Fire Prep Academy (WFPA) to teach individuals hands-on skills that are beneficial for a career in the fire service.

On Saturday, February 22, 2020, candidates will compete for a spot in the academy at the LACoFD’s Cecil R. Gehr Fire Combat Training Center at Department headquarters.

Participants who successfully pass through the preliminary trial that day will continue training for the following five Saturdays, learning what it takes to become a Los Angeles County firefighter.

Everyone, 18 years and older, is encouraged to register!
