KCFD is Hiring EMTs and Paramedics

BAKERSFIELD, Calif., The Kern County Fire Department is excited to announce further expansion within our Emergency Medical Services Division. As the KCFD continues to provide excellent, all-hazard service to the communities we protect, it has faced a growing demand for EMS services throughout Kern County. To meet these growing demands, expansion was necessary and made possible through Measure K funding.


An expansion of service will require hiring individuals to staff civilian First Responder Medical Units. Hiring will consist of EMT certified individuals and Paramedic certified individuals. The addition of these First Responder Medical Units will assist us as we seek to dispatch the right type of unit to the right type of emergency, keeping engine companies available for structures, rescues, etc.
