        They don’t tell you theyre done with it. If they contact you about it that means they need more info or something negative popped up. Just ask your references if they’ve been contacted yet.

          Ok. What about home visits? I've heard people talk about getting a home visit. My BI never said anything about a home visit when he contacted me july 2nd

          • Yea they will contact you for that but not once your background is completed.

            • tommy1089 They will contact you for a home visit after your background check, and only if you’re currently living in the city. Otherwise, the home visit will be the first week of your academy start date.

                  I had my home visit a couple weeks ago. Does that mean I passed the background check?

                    No that just means you verified your address. Ask your references if they were contacted yet. I doubt they have been yet

                      • The above numbers are 200 with no preference from the bottom of the seventh referral. I assume most of these numbers have not been notified yet, although some with lower numbers probably were notified. I don’t know how they portioned out the referral notifications with preferences. Good luck all.

                          Any chance you have the preference numbers to go along with those 200?

                          • Those numbers are all no preference.

                              Yea, I know. Where ever you got those numbers, did you happen to see if there was a list that included the preference numbers or a stand alone list?

                              • Those numbers are from the referral list that is made up by department of Human Resources and sent to the fire department to hire from. It is the official list that I obtained from a Foia request. Don’t understand your your question.
