            • MajorPayne Since you're around some of those hopefuls, any idea to when Band 1 will receive emails?

              Comment


              • Another question is whether any of these V banders had prior FF/medic experience or had a CAFF1 under their belts.

                Comment


                • V-bander. No fire experience or fire academy. I have my paramedic tho. I straight up stopped answering one of the questions halfway through and still received a CJO

                          • V band here,

                            received a CJO was surprised though because I thought my interview was horrible.

                            a TON of guys at my department also got CJOs as well.

                            theres only one guy I know in V band who interviewed and didn’t receive a CJO...


                            anyone have a credible idea as to when the first academy off the EMT list might be?

                            Comment


                            • homewardbound congrats on the CJO, when did you get your email to schedule the interview?

                              Comment


                              • V Band here.

                                Didn’t receive CJO.

                                Currently a FFPM at local SoCal department.

                                But I’m in backgrounds with County from their “lateral FFPM” test in January. Just had family day this weekend with early March Tower for Academy 156 or possibly Academy 157 in June. My scores rolled over to this exam, so I’m not sure if another CJO for FF Trainee position is coming. But they made me interview again for FF Trainee position. Interview FFPM position didn’t roll over.

                                Per family day, if funding is approved, simultaneous academies will run in June (Per BC in charge of training). HR is in charge, so the Staff officers don’t know who or when next tower of Trainees will occur after June tower. Anyone tells you differently, it’s all rumors. Expect one more tower of all medics in June. Then we’ll see when tower for straight FF’s will happen. They said they want as many medics as possible from significant shortage.

                                Roughly 250+ current openings (just in FF rank alone)
                                Roughly 180 retirees a year.
                                Roughly 80 hiring recruits a year.
                                Equal = they can’t keep up with retirements and shortage with 2 academies of 40 a year. Therefore, I can only suspect multiple academies and exhausting as much of each list to help put a small dent in severe shortage.
