        Thanks for sharing the info. You hear any truth to the rumor that they may push classes to next year? CFD 2nd battalion posted they heard that last night

          Well I’m doing my medical this Monday I was originally supposed to do last Friday the 26th but got admitted to the hospital due to my appendix worst timing ever. I know I’m going to have to defer this class in the summer. I’m very curious when the next class will be after the summer. I heard CFD needs to what promote like 100 lieutenants so that opens firefighter spots right and depending on how many guys retire this year as well. All we could do is pray that the city gets more money some way.

                I processed and November 13th -16th or one of those dates I forget. Background call me in December and did a home check in on the first or 2nd week of January. I was cleared and went to the medical scheduling in February. Got called last week to do Final Medical.

                    you are right on your numbers but no matter how many they promote theres usually between 150 and 200 guys retire every year,weve been working every other daily day for 2 years,so its up to the city if they want to hire or keep paying us 1000$ for a 24 hour shiftl

                      • I really hope they have other class in the fall. I don’t like getting political but it would definitely help if congress improves state bailouts in the next stimulus bill. Better chance the city could get more money for fire.

                        • If CFD started up a class for the academy and it got shut down due to covid, would the people in the academy continue to be on the payroll or would everyone be out of work?

                              Thank you for the recommendation! I’m going to email tonight and if no answer I will stop by the academy asap. I am in contact with multiple people that were in my orientation that are through the academy and in a house working so I know something is up. I am just not sure what. Good luck to everybody also waiting on a call/email!

I don’t think they set a date for the next test yet. They currently have 370ish ppl from the last referral and some left over from the 6th referral. Not all those people will end up being in a class. But if they have been doing 4 classes a year with roughly 100 ppl each class that’s about 400 candidates a year. I think this 7th referral is @#3700 which means you have a good amount of people before they get anywhere near 10000
                                Anddd at least one from the 4th referral. I do think they will get close to that number, but the question for those people is, if you do initial orientation are you grandfathered in even if, say they ran a written test the next weekend?
