  • 2019 Chicago PARAMEDIC list

    Hey folks, so there is a thread for CFD FF/EMT but I’m not finding one specific to the Paramedic list. Those of us on the list know there’s a difference so I thought we could use a thread of our own.

    Those of us on the list know that emails were sent out November 5th letting us know weather or not we were referred to the list, and no new news since.

    I'm hoping this thread will be used to keep others updated on any information pertaining to the list. Someone in the FF/EMT thread posted the lists numbers-I.e. number of people referred, preference folks, class dates etc. I’m hoping we can get similar info here.

    Numbers are out. You can call CFD HR, and I’m being told they’ll also be emailing and sending letters.

      Good luck to all! Not to take any shine from medics but do you think that this will also speed up or help more people get called from the EMT-B list?

        There is no list specifically for emt-basics. If you mean the Fire fighter/emt list, I’m not sure how it would help. Though I’m sure there are folks that are on both lists...I’d assume those folks would jump on whichever calls first.

          If you call HR, they can give you your number. Mine is 21* out of "at least 700" according to the HR lady I spoke with.

            Congrats on the 2 digit number. I wasn’t so lucky but hoping the veterans preference helps out.

              Does anyone know the appropriate way to submit an FOIA request to HR. I’d like to supply anyone following this thread with the statistics regarding this list. I.e. total number of applicants, number of vet preferences, CPS, LOD etc.

                Hey pal, if you have Facebook, search for a page called “Second Battalion CFD” he posts information relevant to the current lists, scroll until you find the one about the medic list, he posted about the preferences. If I remember correctly there was a very low amount of veterans on the medic list, so you should be good!

                  Anybody hear anything? I called and got my number from HR, but I’m wondering when we will finally start seeing emails or anything like that. I’m pretty sure the city is short Paramedics right now from what people tell me.

                    Hey guy,

                    i do follow 2nd battalion but I must have missed the medic list post. I spoke with the gentleman who runs the page and he told me he sticks mostly to the FF info, he’s the one who gave me the idea about submitting a FOIA.

                    As for emails...no info on that. I’m currently working in an Er in the west side and talk to a lot of the west side medics. Unfortunately they don’t get a lot of information but it has been said that they’re short medics and the city is adding some rigs (I believe 10 was the. Number I heard).

                    I just picked up a new contract overseas and I’m debating on weather or not I should withdraw from it. Which is why I’m trying to hard to get any sort of information regarding this list.

                    i will update this thread with any new information I get, rest assured.

                        Okay folks. The list is as follows:

                        Total referrals: 745
                        Vets: 19
                        CPS: 88
                        CPFTA: 3
                        CPFTA & CPS: 4
                        LODD: 0
                        Straight with no preference: 631

                        I have the referral lot numbers as well, but they are all over the place. If you’d like your referral lot number message me with your lottery number and I’ll send it to you. The referral numbers are 1 through 5.

                              So even though none of you are subscribed to this thread, and though there is very little involvement from anybody, I am going to continue to update with any news that I get because I see a lot of people still Viewing the post.

                              I spoke to a gentleman who is on the 2014 list. Allegedly he spoke with HR and was told he is cleared for class in March. Meaning no news of classes for the 2019 candidates as of yet. I wouldn’t expect much updates until March.
