        From previous thread.

        This is the referral that the city started processing last:
        Numbers for the fourth referral:
        501 total referred
        1183 no preference
        1710 CPS
        7912 Vets
        6 Cpfta Grads

        The next referral for CFD FF/EMT should be the following numbers...No preference 1575, CPS 2360, Vets 13984. Good luck all!

            Not sure how accurate the new numbers are (Engine85 has been pretty solid with his intel, however). I got the vet preference email to make sure my vet documentation was in order, however I didn't get a confirmation email once I submitted (unlike other vets who seem to got there confirmation late March). I'm 12,0xx. So hopefully I'm in the next referral list, but projected for a later class, which is why I haven't received my vet preference confirmation*. Anyone else in a same or similar boat?

            *Note: I did email CFD HR and they confirmed my veteran preference, but also stated that "The CFD has not reached your lottery number at this time."

              If you contacted HR and they told you the vet preference was in you?re good. Make sure your email is squared away on Chicago-taleo portal. That?s where they?ll email you for first round medical. They?re having classes right now if nothing changes, June, September, December and one in March off a final referral. Solid rumor has it there will be a new test in 2020.

                  I was directed (can't remember what HR number I called) to respond to the "fire application" email that they have been using to contact me. See below

                              So basically they ran thru the test to get all the vets hired and now planning a new one. Smh. Hopefully I get called before then.
