      Hey brother, looking at the names completely objectively, it’s “fire” - “snow” and “dog”-“cat”

      I see the irony... be cool brothers. I know we all want this and it’s hard to hear that we might not get it.

          • I apologize, I didn’t mean to make you guys feel down like you will not get it. County changes the way they do things everyday. Just because they say one thing, does not mean it’s set in stone.. The only reason county is switching to a Fctc style is because it will be cheaper for them to go that route ( their thoughts). I did not mean to come off like a *** and misrepresent this great department, so I’m sorry. If you want me to be completely honest and say my thoughts. I honestly do not think they will throw out this list, no matter what HR says. It took too much money and time to established this list. They are just combing through band 2 just to make sure they don’t miss out on some good guys. Not everyone is a good test taker, that does not mean they won’t make a good firefighter. You guys all have great attitudes with keeping the faith and I’m sorry for bringing negative energy. Also here is a quick pick me up for some. Was informed from a source (not sure how reliable, so take it as you will), but get ready for another round of CJO ... hint hint THIS WEEK. Take care all, and we will see you out there.

              No worries man! This process has been so long and I think everyone is just anxious to hear anything at this point. Good luck to everyone here

                Appreciate your response and I’m sure we all appreciate the heads up. I know I don’t just speak for myself when I say I’ll be monitoring my email extra close this week. Good luck, everyone.

                          do we know how many people got CJOs from this current Band 1 process? I’m in group 7 and interviewed in May.

                          • Hearing approx 200 went out for these 2 classes running September. They figure half will fall out from backgrounds and medicals or other reasons. How many more will go out after this and from band 1 is anyone’s guess.
