    I am.

    If I remember correctly, there was 270ish candidates remaining before the first class was selected. Which leaves 200 candidates roughly for the remaining 60 hires.

Second class from the list to start in January and was going to be 40 but they are saying 60 now. 130 ppl hired from one cycle is kinda crazy, esp compared to Hamilton county taking 3 here, 5 there, etc. Fingers crossed I?ll be hearing something soon. Just wondering if anyone else was in both processes.
      Our instructor in Firefighter 1 and 2 at ESEC told us tonight that they should be hiring 60 in January. Next recruitment process starts in March and will for sure hire another 60 next year after that, possibly 120 depending on how retirements and stuff go.

          The only thing I’ve heard is that Carmel has a new truck company in the budget for 2020. If approved, it will open up a few spots.

            They (Carmel) are hiring a small class now (8-10) and then the new ladder would be hired first quarter of 2020. About 25 in that second class.

            A Carmel medic said this and the polygraph officer confirmed.

                No I am not. Have seen several turned down including myself, even after passing polygraphs. Only chance I currently have is I’m still in the hunt for IFDs current process.

                    More conditional offers from Carmel went out last week. Looks like they are going to possibly make a class of about 20-30 with the people who have already been offered starting the first of the year.

                    • I made it onto IFDs next class so I’m withdrawing from this one. Best of luck to the rest of you for Hamilton county or other departments. IFD next application process starts in March.
