    Anybody got insight on here about the Wilmington, Delaware FD? Did anyone get a call back for the physical agility test?

    Just sent in my application yesterday. Saw it on Firecareers.com as continuous recruitment.

      As a heads up brothers, have a few friends on the job in Wilmington. They barely dodged being laid off this year, a second time in their 3 year careers. Same with a guy who has been on for like 7 years. To avoid it, they shut down Rescue 1 and brown out one company every day. The city is in pretty bad shape...

        What is the current EMS situation over there? Do they run ambulances? or is it just EMT-B engines?

        Are the guys you know happy to work there?

          I think New Castle County is the EMS service, but the FD runs as first responder/EMT's. One guy I know was dedicated to, and had a passion like I've never seen before to work in, Rescue 1. When they shut it down, I could tell he was hurt.

          The younger guys seemed to like it; but when you're on the brink of losing your gig it definitely makes you wonder.

            I heard the city received a grant for 13 new recruits for up to 3 years? Does that mean after 3 years if its not in the budget there would be layoffs? If anyone can offer insight into this that would be great.

                Did anyone else get the email to schedule the interview at the end of the month? If so how are you preparing?

                  I spoke to HR today and they said just standard interview questions with a few technical/job related questions as well. And that only 25 have interviews.
