      I believe the buildings are only closed off to the public. Business will still be conducted while the buildings are closed off.

            • I think with all this going on the need for firefighters is going to increase. Call volume is going to go up if it hasn’t already. Luckily the interview is from home..the only issue would be background orientation but they can easily just have people meet with their investigator after what I’m sure would be a long email and skip the orientation. Medical shouldn’t be a problem..and then the academy could be a issue..has anyone heard if this March academy is still a go?

              • I got a buddy who’s in the next class and he said he hasn’t heard of any changes so it seems like the Pomona tower is still on. If I hear anything different I’ll let you guys know.

                  I just saw a dept in Washington State suspended their recruit academy until further notice. First I've seen so far.

                    • FYI, for any of you with EMT certs that expire 3/31, the NREMT IS extending it to 6/30. Furthermore, in class instruction is not required for this cert period only. Online hours will be all that’s required.

                        • Tough times ladies and gents. Hopefully for whatever delays we're seeing at the moment will be made up with more recruits being assigned to towers. Stay safe out there.

                              The new class is supposedly still on. Heard they’ll be taking recruits temps at the start of each day to keep things safe. This is a mix of remaining Medics and a wave of V banders. Get some!

                                Glad to hear they are still moving along as scheduled!
