        Nothing so far. I did my uniform and gear fitting and outside of a couple ppl stating that they thought the class was going to be 80, nothing of note.

                        • Have any of you gone in for your poly recently? I did the medical back in July and my status on Government Jobs says that I have been in the initial poly evaluation since mid August. I have reached out to HR a few times just to make sure I haven't missed any communication and they just tell me there is a logjam with the polygraph.

                            Didn't start PT until mid-week 2? Lucky you guys. Every academy I know starts it the first day of recruit school. Enjoy the relative ease of PT during EMT class, once Fire starts that daily PT is really going to wear you down on practical days!

                            I just had my medical, so lord knows when they'll schedule me for a poly then! Took them July-Jan to get me an appointment for the medical alone.

                              • PM me with your questions. Ask whatever you want. I was hired before the big changes to the EMS system took hold in 2009, and I've worked in a few different states, with different deployment models, so I can give perspective.
