  • Can anyone clear up what the numbers posted recently on the Second Batalion Facebook page mean. It looks to me that there are 2691 budgeted fire fighter positions with only 68 vacant. If that is the case would they be done hiring until 2021 after those 68 positions are filled? Thanks for any info .

      That was as of august. A class of about 100 just graduated and there is another class of about 100 in the academy now.

        Yes, but the academy that started July 22nd should already be included in that 2691 number that are budgeted, along with those that just graduated. I could be wrong, but if it were the other way, CFD would be over budget by only getting 2 classes in this year, even though their goal was to have 4 this year and 4 next year, to KEEP UP with vacancies and retirements.

        • I’ve talked to a few people within the last week...a few in the current class and another good source With contacts in the training department...right Now everyone is hearing the plan is for a class early December...let’s just hope and pray no politics Or finances truly get in the way...all we can do at this point.

            I’ve heard the same thing from a couple guys in the current class. December is what their hoping for

            • 68 vacant ff/emt positions as of August 16, then add 160 scheduled retirements end of this year, plus a few extra. Next year probably another 150 retirements. Next year’s retirement numbers will be known later this year. My guess would be another class this year and 2 or 3 next year. Good luck all.

              • The emt class moves to fire side October 13th. So that’s the earliest the first class would be able to start. But it does take some time for them to set up the academy I believe.

                • Was told that December 1st is the goal for the next academy class, if all goes according to plan of course.

                        Same here. Had mine mid august I’m guessing I would’ve heard back from them by now if something came up

                            I went to the academy last Wednesday to drop off some medical paperwork and turn in my CPAT. When I was there in the waiting room the staff in HR I overheard them talking about other class soon. Plus that same day I received a email for CFD HR reminding candidates that they need a CPAT to start the academy.

                            • Did they have the 7/22 academy hires do a covid test again before final processing or just when you start academy?

                              Thanks to everyone for all the info on the next possible class - it is appreciated
