The Oceanside Firefighters Association would like to welcome 7 new members from Oceanside Fire Academy 14. Oceanside Firefighters are unique. We are the only Fire Department in our zone that holds full fire academies for our new hires. New hires spend a minimum of 8 weeks full time additional training making sure we are ready to serve the public to the highest standard. Training starts with Physical Conditioning that tests the employees ability to perform under the physical and mental stress the job demands. Training includes three main disciplines: Hose, Ladders and Ventilation. Structural Firefighting, Wildland Firefighting, Confined Space, Rope Rescue, Swift Water, Vehicle Rescue, Live Fire Operations and Paramedic Skills are just some of the other required performance topics that our Recruits are expected to learn and know. This is only the start of there continued on-the-job training. Congratulations on your success as our most newly graduated academy!

The Oceanside Firefighters Association, IAFF LOCAL 3736, is a union membership of roughly 100 individuals who work as firefighters, engineers and captains with the Oceanside Fire Department. Although a separate entity than the Fire Department, the OFA works collaboratively with the fire department administration, operations and prevention to promote safety and fire prevention within the community.  The OFA is proud of our Oceanside community and hosts multiple fundraisers to support community organizations including the annual charity golf contest, surf contest and our pancake breakfast during harbor days. Proceeds from all of these events are donated back to our community organizations.  As members of the International Association of Firefighters and the California Professional Firefighters, the association is active in the political arena at the local, state and national level to preserve the safety and welfare of its members.
