  • Ok, a lot of you guys have asked about the cpat expiring. I called the exams unit about a month ago and she said they understand that you can’t test right now. So as long as you are on top of scheduling it to get it renewed is all that matters. You need to have it valid when they go to hire you that’s all. Someone else has said this before awhile back as well

                      • So where will this leave us? Gavin Newsom told CNN's Jake Tapper during a Sunday morning interview when asked what will happen if California doesn't get federal aid he's response was "first responders, our police officers and firefighters, will be the first ones that will be laid off by cities and counties." The future seems bleak, does anyone know anything or heard anything? Like they say we're in this together.

                          This is more for the state funded agencies like CalFire, CHP or other state funded services that are provided to specific counties or cities....this threat by Newsom also opens up a whole other political debate best left for other forums..haha

                              I am one of those who are waiting for the late interview. I contacted HR yesterday and they told me the same thing they told me a little over a week ago -- "Keep checking your email."

                              • How many orientations took place for the ff/emt role? I think it was two days but there were two times. Is that right? For a total of four?
