    Rumor is it won't be FireTeam Testing this time becasue it costs the county too much $$$.

    Just received notification for the test on Feb 26. Anyone have any idea which test they are going to use?

    As far as I know they have interviewed the people on the “laid off” list and are looking to hire from that initially. We are down over 30 people and are looking to hire a class of 22. If we can get a “Safety Grant” we may hire all 30 we sent for background checks.

    I think we are short a total of 42, and will lose another bunch in March and will still need another class even if we do hire all 30. I don’t know if they will be looking for EMT’s or Medics, but we will probably be going to the list from the test we are now giving.

    We have closed engine 1 at station1 in Walnut Creek. If we don't get other funding we will have to close more stations.

    Heard on the local news that Station 1 in Walnut Creek will cut 1 of its 2 engines, resulting in 3 less firefighters at that station.

    Chief Daryl Louder is looking at the possibility of closing 8 stations throughout the district. The district currently has 30 stations.

    The district has to close a $12 million deficit. No huge cuts will be made until a parcel tax is voted on in June.

    It doesn't look so good for those looking for the chance to get hired with Contra Costa County.

    Just called HR. They said "We are currently going through an appeal process, and you will be notified of your test appointment by mail or email." So basically, she said "Hold your Horses!" This was for entry level ff, not lateral.

    Hey I'm a laid off firefighter, so I am very impressed Cal has a list for laid off guys. But sadly, that is what they told me.

    Called HR, and she said that the fire/medic testing is the same as lateral. Then she said they had 3000 apps, and unsure of any further testing.

    Update: They are doing interviews, but it is from the state layoff list. Out of staters are not considered at this point.
