Central County Fire Department is proud to give back to the Fire Service community through its Internship program. The program gives future Firefighter candidates exposure to what it takes to become a professional Firefighter. In a learning capacity and on a volunteer basis, Interns respond to emergency calls, participate in company training, interact with the community, and obtain knowledge that will help them on their path to becoming a career Firefighter.

In addition, Interns assemble once a month for a drill tailored toward developing basic firefighting skills and tactics. Interns are assigned one 24-hour shift per week, for a period of one (1) year, and are considered a valued piece of CCFD operations. Openings for Intern positions occur as needed. Check our website and social media sites periodically for application opportunities.

Requirements: Applicants must be 18 years of age or older at time of appointment, possess a valid EMT license, possess a valid CPR-BLS for Healthcare Provider certificate, and possess a valid California Driver’s License. 

Highly Desirable Qualifications: Paramedic License, current or past enrollment in accredited Paramedic Program, current or past enrollment in accredited Fire Fighter Academy, Firefighter I Certification, Fire Technology coursework, or previous Firefighter Intern/Cadet Experience.
