    I find the removal of the EMT difficult to believe. I'm going to go down the one of the stations today to get clarification on this.

        I still haven't had any concrete validation as to the elimination of the EMT-B requirement.
        Do you have any source documents to support this?

          Call CSFD Human Resources. 719-385-5950. They will know if the EMT has been dropped.

            It's been confirmed...

            Just talked to Kathy in HR. She said that for this application window, EMT-B is NOT required.

            Hope this helps.

                Or possibly the end of this year. Nothing concrete yet.
                Nothing is as unimpressive as someone who is unwilling to learn.

                  This is wild.

                  Are they going to give preference points for having EMT? Are they going to make people that have the Cert go through the classes again in the Academy?

                  Seems odd for a city who is broke to put on a /longer/ time and money consuming academy when they could just make it a pre req.

                    No bonus points that I'm aware of. However, having your EMT would make the 4 week EMT a nice refresher right? Plus it would look real good on a resume.

                      Same thing I was thinking. CSFD is a hard department to get on to begin with and now they are opening it up to people without EMT. It is going to be a lot of people testing now.

                      With my lack of a CPAT and well money. I am going to be sitting this test out.

                      Good Luck Guys!!

                        Does anyone have any info on the department's work schedule and staffing? Also, any info on pension/retirement would be helpful too. Thanks

                            Indeed. But the info is still helpful.

                                I saw that on their webiste, but I find it kind of hard to believe the salary jumps that high that quickly, but I really wouldn't know. But if those are the steps for an entire career, I'm thinking every few years you get the next step. Can anyone clarify this?
