  • what are y'all thoughts on looking for a new job while being in this process? i'm a v bander with no cjo (did my interview early feb) and got recently laid off due to this pandemic. my concern is having to put in my resignation as a new hire if that cjo ever comes which could be sooner than later. i'm not even sure if i'll be getting unemployment benefits because of the massive amounts of people that applied.

    • Never stop the hunt until you get the job you want. I’m assuming you didn’t work in ems since you got laid off which sucks. Sorry to hear that. But with all this going on working on a ambulance is the easiest and most reliable. there’s tons of IFT companies in the LA area that are always hiring. And multiple 911 ambulance companies as well. The pay isn’t fantastic but better than what you would get in unemployment.

          I second what AIQ said. Keep looking for a way to pay the bills but also find a job that you wouldn’t mind doing as a back up career that way you aren’t hating life waiting for the grass to be greener. I got out and rolled right into a private fire academy and was about to be hired by a backup job then...we’ll you know what then was haha. I’m right there with you.

              just my opinion, but i don't think it'll be long until the next wave of CJO's come out. Probably hear something by may or June if you are selected. If they're putting academies through during a global pandemic then that means they are obviously really hurting for people. If you're in v-band and haven't heard anything yet it's just because you weren't among those selected for the next tower, or you literally weren't selected at all and haven't been told. A lot of departments won't even tell you if you weren't selected. All you can do is be patient and wait it out. You'll hear something soon.

              • 4 more classes this year and 6 next year, is the rumor.

                • Also heard 4 more this year; 2 in June and 2 in September. Will be filled from those on FF/Trainee list.

                  • If they do the 2 June academy’s still they would have to be made up entirely of v-band..which is possible. Us in band 1 would hopefully have a shot at September.
                    no way they would be able to get band 1 through background and medical before June.

                      Not sure how it works, but if band 1 gets a CJO, they could get us in next year still, correct? Even if it is over a year since our test?

                        Yes. I know of a guy who got a CJO on their last test and it took 3 years until he got in the academy. The “year” that you’re talking about is the cut off time to actually receive the CJO. If you don’t get a CJO by October 3rd I believe the date is, then there’s a good chance you didn’t make it. Good luck to everyone!

                          There is no way they could process band 1 people fast enough for June, especially if interviews go until June. More than likely band 1 is on track for September. June is only 2 months away and they still would have to do backgrounds and medicals.

                            I spoke with a retired bc for la county and he said that the date of oct is going to get pushed back.
