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 and development 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.  If You Have Not Applied to The Los Angeles Fire Department AND/OR Taken the Written Exam You Are Not Allowed to Participate in FCAP.

You must be 18 years or older.  Please call 213-893-9502 if you have any questions.
