      I was in from august 2012 to August 2019 and I didnt get the 10 points. I called and verified this with the HR reps. The link mentions that if you served anytime between 9/11/2001 and 8/31/2010 then you get it. After 2010, you need a campaign medal. There are some other dates too like the gulf war and some older ones.

        It wont let me attach the pdf because the file is too big. If you Google lacofd veteran credit firefighter it was the second result for me. Front page says "your path to becoming a firefighter." Page 11 is the veteran credit

              So it’s 3rd hand from a recruiting event, but before everyone got their notices, Lacfod requested 1500 post marked letters from logistics and they never send out anything that big. Then two days later everyone had their scores

                      Is this for the paramedic process? Seems too soon for the emt process. And are they giving offers through mail or phone calls?

                        • Does anyone know how many people they are pulling from this test?

                          • Those with medic license first. Not sure how many though.
                            If you had less than a year experience, couldn’t apply to first round.
