        I'd like to think that's the case.....but that means we would need to find out asap. I was told my background information will not even be submitted back to the city till early September. That would be awesome though! I don't care if I get picked for October or January....I just want the opportunity to earn a spot!

        • I received mine 5 months before the tower started. Once you receive an offer, you still have to go through the med and psych. It takes for them about 3 weeks to a month to turn your results in (they do all the testing combined with PD during that step). About one month before the start, you need to get fitted for clothing and PPE.

          Those are average timeframes. There is so much to do after the CJO and that requires at least a couple of months to get through.

              • I'm hearing conflicting reports about 40s being closed down for academies at least for the time being. Any insight? Not trying to think too far ahead, but that would definitely influence where I would live for those months in training if I am blessed with being picked. Thanks
