Employment Application
  1. Thank you for your interest in joining our team. Please take a moment to read through the following information and reach out to us using the "Contact Us" option if you have any questions.

    You have two options when applying to join our team. You can choose to apply to as a Firefighter or to become a member of our Auxiliary. Each choice has separate requirements, but the process is basically the same.

    First, let us share with you the requirements for becoming a firefighter with Little Axe Fire Department.

    Starting in 2015, LAFD implemented a new recruit training program which will requires firefighter applicants to attend a specific set of training events over a period of six weeks. This program is designed to take an applicant with no prior experience and make them an asset to the department and the community as quickly as possible. The program is also designed to work around most normal work day schedules by being planned for Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6:00pm to 10:00pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 8:00am to 5:00pm. Successful candidates that complete this in house academy will graduate as a probationary firefighter, ready to join the team, answer calls and continue their training to full certification. All firefighters must complete a minimum twelve month probationary period.

    If you are already an experienced firefighter relocating to our area and looking to be part of a professional and progressive team, make sure to attach documentation of your previous training to your application or bring it with you to your first interview. The academy is still a requirement for all firefighter applicants, however depending on your experience you may find yourself assisting in teaching portions of the skills and sharing your experiences with your new brother and sister candidates.
    Participation in this phase is required because of the nature of the academy environment and coming together as part of the team. It also provides a great chance to refresh skills and build relationships with your new extended family.

    Applications are accepted any time and interviews are scheduled throughout the year.

    When available you can view the specific Academy dates here.

    If you are eager to get started, but are unable to make it to the academy due to scheduling issues, you can join our auxiliary and complete the required training across more than one academy. Once the requisite training is achieved, you will be invited to complete some key elements with the next academy class and you will graduate with them.

    Either path you choose, you will be getting involved and learning from the time of your first interview.

    Things you should know before applying...
    • Applicants may be required to attend one or more interview panels.
    • You will need to know your blood type if selected as a firefighter candidate.
    • Firefighter candidates will be expected to complete specific training goals during your three years.
    • All firefighters, including probationary, will be expected to respond at odd hours and in inclement weather for emergencies.
    • The Little Axe Fire Department is an all-volunteer organization. As such all positions are unpaid and you will receive no monetary compensation for your time.

    For those looking for a little less commitment, but still want to serve the community and learn new skills are welcome to join our auxiliary. Auxiliary members have a wide range of opportunities from fundraising, support tasks, education and much more. The participation requirements for the auxiliary are much less, only asking that you at least attend two meetings and assist with one or more events during a calendar year.

    Thank you for your interest in becoming a member of the Little Axe Fire Department. We look forward to meeting you!
