Does anyone know what this fire card is? I am noticing a lot of job postings that state "fire card" issued by LA county fire dept as a requirement along with other standards like CPR card etc. I can't seem find out what this elusive fire card is!
Also, has anyone been CERT certified by the local fire department? I just signed up and I was wondering if anyone else has been through this training? Does this look good on a resume and/or college application? (that's not why I signed up, trying to be a good samaritan!)

Re: Fire Safety Card (City of Los Angeles)
These cards are obtained by instructors (typically retired firefighters) certified by the City of Los Angeles Fire Department (LAFD). You can obtain a list of certified instructors who can issue the Los Angeles City Fire Safety Card (sometimes also called the "Fire Life Safety Card") which are valid for 4 years. These cards are sometimes required for nurses, certified nursing assistants, EMTs, etc. You can obtain the most recent list by calling 213-978-3730. After speaking with some instructors, if you can get 6 or more persons together, you can obtain a discount and have some flexibility on where and when to meet.
Heads up: Presently, there are NO authorized online providers of this card, so beware of online companies purporting to offer these cards. The 3M, Canadian, and Florida online courses for fire safety are NOT the same as the LA City Fire Safety Card.
