One of the most significant 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 Firefighter Candidate Advancement Program (FCAP), a physical fitness program designed by firefighters for firefighters.  

The focus is on developing both strength and metabolic conditioning in a similar training environment to that found in the LAFD's fire academy.   Your success as a firefighter for the LAFD depends heavily on the work you put in BEFORE you arrive at the Drill Tower.  

We STRONGLY encourage all LAFD candidates to take advantage of this FREE program.  ***Dress Code "Dark Blue" exercise shorts/pants, short sleeve t-shirt (no tank or crop tops), Dark athletic shoes, no loose or restrictive jewelry, bring a firm foam roller and water. You must be 18 years or older.  Please call 213-893-9502 if you have any questions.
