    They are down forty firefighters.

    Instead of a written they have used Fireteam on their last tests.

    Keep in mind that there will still be an oral.

      Thanks, Capt.

      But what do you mean they use Fireteam instead of written tests? Says they're having fire tests in January 2011. Thanks!

        Many agencies are using the FireTeam Testing video as the first step instead of a traditional straight written.

            Update. HR says there are throwing out the FireTeam Testing and returning to a standard written test.

                        Oral boards are underway to hire lateral firefighters to fill the 40+ vacancies and the 10+ leaving next March.

                        No written test was given. Just going straight to the orals for laterals.

                        Life is timing!

                              That's strange, I applied for it but haven't heard anything from them.
