        There will definitely be hires off of this list. There is the potential for as many as 40

          Seems like a good department, and as JT said there should be a lot of hires in the next few years. Good luck to all that apply.

                  List has to be certified by the end of April, and academy starts early July, so sometime between then. Check out Youtube for 2 AFD videos of the Agility Test.

                    Thanks, How does Veteran's Preference work? I know the score gets added on top but how many points will I recieve? Is there different catoagories or just you served on Active Duty so you get points?

                        JfD, all I will say about the veterans preference is that they are very generous to veterans.

                        Candidate, I've been on about a year, and couldn't be happier!!

                          Hey JT..Do you think that being a "disabled vet" would be an issue? I put it in quotations because I'm considered that by the VA, I wasn't medically retired or anything.

                          Is there a oral board? or is it strictly written, physical and they base your list # off that?

                          Are people with certifications considered before others?

                            1 more question..I took a civil service test before so I'm sort of familiar with the type of material..however, would it be worth it to get 1 of those test preps from like a borders?
