    I emailed that FFTAPPLICANT.FIRE email asking about the union extending the current list. I even provided a link to the union page where it stated this. This was the response.

    Thanks for the information,
    At this moment, the Fire Fighter Trainee eligible list is still expired. Should the list be restored and candidates are sent conditional offers, candidates will be contacted by our Backgrounds Unit.

    I can see it easily happening especially when you hire someone with zero experience or any fire service exposure. They have no idea what they are getting themselves into and it was probably a reality check.

    It’s WILD to me that someone could make it this far and get this once in a lifetime changing opportunity and throw it out the window over attitude and egos. I’m not surprised but I’ve seen this happen more than once.

    Well said homewardbound. The academy trains and weeds out, a guy that gets pushed through will do more damage then good. The fact that you feel upset that someone else got a shot other than you and they couldn’t make it shows the entitlement on this forum. Entitlement is the last thing that should be in any organization. Before any keyboard warriors try to hit back, just be stoked if you get your shot and don’t **** on others cause they couldn’t make it.

    I know someone who got a thanks but no thanks letter for not passing backgrounds. Can’t really see them sending out more CJOs until the beginning of the year since there’s already enough people from the first round who are waiting for a tower date. Did hear 159 has lost 13 recruits so far and 160 has loss 5.

    Anyone have an idea of when they might send out more CJO’s? Any rumors?

    I know of a few people throughout this process and the medic process who either got a no thank you email, or a letter in the mail saying they didn’t pass backgrounds so I figured I would’ve heard something by now but who knows
