In order to be hired by the Beverly Hills Fire Department, you must first attend a fire academy which is typically 12-16 weeks and be at least a high school graduate, however a college degree is highly valuable. Next you must obtain your Emergency Medical Technician certification to learn basic life saving techniques. This takes a semester and is a requirement since every firefighter also works as an EMT. An option that many candidates choose to make themselves more valuable is to attend paramedic school.
Employment opportunities can be found with the City of Beverly Hills Human Resources
