        yep. They asked for 6 mil. They got a lot though. I know that the cops are asking for some of the money as well to put together an academy, so we'll have to see how that works out. Should be interesting though. They want to hire 43 by next year.

              That's great news. Anyone have any idea of a possible time frame that they might start the testing process or a usual time that they've tested in the past?

                Last i heard they want to get an academy started at the first of the year, so expect something very soon. If not Jan expect an academy to start in march/april time frame.

                  That is awesome news! I watched a report on ABC 15 Phoenix and the reporter stated that Phoenix Fire currently has 160+ vacancies.....WOW! Now the question of the hour is whether they will use the most recent list, start a whole new testing process or hire lateral firefighters to fill the first 42 vacancies? Here's the link for the aforementioned story:

                    Pretty sure they are going to do a new hiring process. Using a list that is 3-4 years old seems kind of silly.
                    Be interesting to find out though. And I don't think PHX does laterals.

                    ETA: I do know they have some Red Shirts on standby, they will more than likely put them through the academy first.

                        Indeed, hoping my family connections will be able to help me out. Also hoping that they post some dates soon so i can get the CPAT out of the way and throw some plane tickets down.

                        I'm guessing if it's anything like the mesa/chandler debacle it's going to be a mad house trying to get a test spot.

                          Oh yeah! I remember camping out for 19 hours in Chandler for that test. It was well worth the wait because I met some awesome, awesome people! Good luck to everyone who may be testing. In this economy, we've got to bring our A game to the table.
