In this edition of Size-Up, the Los Angeles County Fire Department (LACoFD) is spotlighting the Human Resources Division’s Examinations Section.

The Examinations Section is made up of six managers and six analysts who process the largest exams within Los Angeles County.  These individuals possess special skills to create and process assessments for first responder and civilian job vacancies.

Due to COVID-19, the Examinations Section was faced with challenges in securing testing venues to administer examinations for critical public safety positions.  The team worked to find alternative accommodations without compromising the integrity of the examination process.  Since the height of the pandemic, the team found solutions to hold in-person testing for thousands of candidates.

“Our team is truly committed to providing comprehensive examinations in order to identify the best candidates for the Department,” said Examinations Section Manager Rowena Hernandez.  “Our staff goes above and beyond to deliver a positive exam experience for all candidates.”

The Examinations Section plays an essential role in filling critical positions at the Department, so it can continue its daily operations.
