Arrow The Mother of all Tests- LA County FIREFIGHTER TRAINEE/PARAMEDIC 2019

Flashback to the LAFD and OCFD medic crisis. Most small cities and departments in CA and surrounding states are going to lose their FF/Medics to LA County. 2019 will be a roller coaster year as I know they need medics bad right now. I can see Cal Fire RRU losing a lot of medics along with some of the IE (Victorville taking another hit), Sac Metro, San Diego County region and Las Vegas all getting sucked up too. I know guys from the Salt Lake, Utah metro areas that have left for LA Co.

Metro is taking apps for FF/PM right now, so Iím guessing they might lose applicants to LAC over time.

Does anyone out there know how deficient they are in the paramedic ranks? How many people they may be searching for?
