      Forgot to quote you in my post. I would think they are doing the background on you even if they plan on taking 20. There is a very real chance they will lose 6 people in the upcoming steps.

      Also they have a fair number of background investigations to do so not everyone's references will be called in the same day. If you have a different person doing yours they may not even do it in the same order.

      I know it's tough sitting around waiting for answers but I wouldn't read into the little stuff too much. Sooner is always better but at 26 you won't have a very long wait either way. Congrats!

            • No way to know for sure, but they used they exhausted the last list so guessing they will do the same

                    As was said it's 15 miles from city limits. Also you have 6 months from the date of hire(I believe that's when the clock starts) to comply. You can request extensions though but I do not know what that all entails.

                    My house is literally 1.5 miles outside of the zone so I get a new house soon lol

                    Here is a link to the map that shows the residency zone.

                    • The fire department got approved today for 45 in the academy, 23 fire cadets and 22 off the list. So July 30th is looking like the start date.

                          Unsure yet, they were just submitting background investigations and finishing up cpats this week. Should know more by July 3rd

                          • What happens on July 3rd?

                            I see on the 21st the F&P commission had a closed doors meeting to amend the eligibility list.

                            The next day I got an email for my drug test. Don't want to read in to it too much but I'm hoping they amended the list after going through the background and psych packets and this means all is clear​​​​​​.

                            • I listened to the 6-21 FPC meeting. They amended the list to give 4 people preference points who weren?t originally awarded them, I think for residency. They didn?t state what rank those 4 people were.

                              • Any idea when they will be holding a second academy with people off the list? Not sure if I'll squeeze into the first one
