    With other departments postponing the process I feel like they would postpone towers. I did my interview in January and still haven’t heard anything. I am wishing the best for you all and keep your heads up. We are literally in the same boat. Stay hungry ladies and gentlemen and hopefully we can hear something soon.
    I'm still shocked OCFA hasn't officially postponed all biddles.

      I emailed them yesterday about it. They responded that there will be an update about the biddle for all candidates coming very soon. I have a feeling they will be postponing all biddle dates until further notice. But we shall see.

      • ALL ORANGE COUNTY FIRE AUTHORITY MARCH 2020 BIDDLE EXAMS HAVE BEEN POSTPONED.

        If you are a Firefighter Trainee candidate who self-scheduled a Biddle examination for March 2020, all March 2020 (March 21 – March 31) Biddle exams have been postponed. Information will be sent to effected candidates as soon as possible regarding make-up dates. Please be patient as updates are being made to the selection process.

        Currently, April 2020 Biddle exams dates are moving forward as scheduled. There are NO APRIL DATES available to select as those spots have all been filled. DO NOT try to cancel your March Biddle exam date and scheduled for an April date. There are no April dates available.

        Again, the March 21 – March 31, 2020Biddle exams have been postponed. We will provide more information as soon as possible.

          • I believe the earliest dates started yesterday? I personally don’t know anyone who had that date, but I have friend who knows someone that did

            • Two guys from my department had theirs yesterday, mine is April 1 and another coworker has his April 9.

                I had mine yesterday. I think if you turned in your FF1,FF2 along with your resume you got an earlier interview date....well that’s kind of the only thing that kind of makes sense on how they scheduled people.

                  I think it was random. I turned in my FF1 and don’t have my interview until late April while know others who don’t have a FF1 or 2 and have earlier dates than me.

                  • April 1st here.

                    I’m guessing but how quick did everyone return their resume?

                        I highly doubt it. I submitted my resume the last day it was due and I had my interview yesterday!

                        • Pretty sure it was all random. Some just got lucky with earlier dates.
                          if not, I will say I have a good resume. with primary care paramedic experience, no academy tho. And I know other medics with later dates then mine.

                          • For those of you who already had the digital selection interviews. Is it a live interview where you’re responding to a live group of people or are you just answering to a pre-recorded questionnaire?

                              It works just like the mock. Pre recorded as stated in email

                                Wow. Thanks for the share.

                                the above is a surprise as I knew it was digital, but not automated.
