  • anyone know what lafd academy is like?

    Hello,
    Recently I've been thinking about getting serious about becoming a firefighter for LAFD. I was just wondering what the physical portion of the academy like. As in what type of exercises I must take on. And how long will it last?
    thanks in advance

    if your still wondering. they gave me a pamplet. it said pretty much you need to be able to run 3 miles under 24 minute. they also say to be gold you must reach these standards.

    25 pushups
    20 leg lifts
    25 push ups
    20 leg lifts
    25 push ups
    20 leg lifts
    10 pull ups
    10 dips
    10 pull ups
    10 dips
    10 pull ups
    10 dips

    that's usually there warm up after that it's throwing ladders all day. this is just what they say you should be able to do in order to handle the academy. it doesn't necessary mean you need to meet every requirement.
