The County of Los Angeles Fire Department’s (LACoFD) Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (ODEI), Communications Section, and Fire Station 31 team members participated in the Los Cerritos Elementary School Career Day in Paramount on Wednesday, January 24, 2024.
Students from kindergarten to fifth grade were excited to have the opportunity to meet local firefighters and learn about what it takes to have a career at the LACoFD. Each class toured the fire engine, learned about fire safety, and took home an official LACoFD coloring book so families can make their homes F.I.R.E. ready and learn how to safely escape.
Each year, Los Cerritos Elementary School hosts a career day to expose students to career opportunities that are available especially those in their community. Many individuals participated in this year’s event including the Los Angeles Ram’s cheerleaders, Animal Care and Control, UPS, environmental scientists, doctors and more.
The Department is proud to participate in community events to inspire and prepare youth for a successful future.
