SAN JOSE (KCBS) – The San Jose Fire Department is planning on holding a recruitment class early next year, a significant event as it will be the first one held in the city in five years.
The last recruitment was held in 2008.
“We have projected retirements that will be coming up over the next couple of years, so we want to be prepared for that,” said San Jose Fire Chief Willie McDonald. “We haven’t done a recruitment since 2008. We want to reach out to our community in any way that we can and really target more diversity, as well as woman and military veterans.”
