Expos present an excellent opportunity for both community and firefighter candidate outreach. California Firefighter JAC participating fire departments have the ability to reserve booths and pass out recruitment materials. Attendees get a face-to-face introduction to the fire service by speaking with recruiters from fire departments throughout the state and the JAC’s Women’s Commission about what “A Day in the Life of a Firefighter” entails. Attendees can try the Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT), get hands-on experience with new mechanical reasoning props, learn what to expect on the written test and view apparatus displays. Prospective candidates include those from Community College Fire Tech Programs, the CSUS, EMT and Paramedic Programs, U.S. Veterans, Fire Explorer Posts, High School Students, and other fire-related organizations and associations.
