          oh god. I cant stress this enough. BRING whatever they tell you to bring. ex, COPYS OF YOUR CPAT, EMT AND LICENSE.

          a ton of people didn't bring those, and they weren't too happy about it.

                When did you receive the CJO? A couple weeks ago? I interviewed last week.

                      Thanks. I interviewed on DEC 18 and received the CJO on JAN 28. I know a group of V banders received CJO’s a couple of weeks ago.

                          Well this is just a CJO to move on to backgrounds and medical so who knows how long this process will take and I’m sure it will be different for everyone.

                            March 3rd is when the next tower is suppose to start, though its medics only from the medic list. Someone else mentioned earlier that June would be the next tower which can be a mix of medics and Emts and if they get the funding, possibly run simultaneous towers.
