One of the biggest challenges faced by LAFD firefighter recruits is developing the strength and fitness required to be successful in the LAFD Training Academy. The Los Angeles Fire Department is offering the Candidate Assistance Program (CAP), a physical fitness program designed by firefighters for firefighters. It is focused on developing both strength and metabolic conditioning in a similar training environment to that found in the LAFD's fire academy. Your personal success as a firefighter for the LAFD depends heavily on the work you put in BEFORE you arrive at the Drill Tower.
