    Just spent the weekend in Miami. I seen Miami Beach Fire Rescue and Miami-Dade Fire Rescue. Definitely would be sweet bro. Dont give up.

    I believe they do that after you're on the list, but not sure. I'd imagine they'd tell you, though, as I'm sure there's paperwork you have to fill out.

    Anyways, update for any that are curious. STILL haven't gotten anything my phone, mail, or email about being placed on the list. Government Jobs says I'm "eligible," but I've seen or heard nothing about it thus far.

    Not that it matters. I anticipate getting an offer from Miami-Dade, which I will gladly take.

    Hey everyone, a Fairfax County Firefighter is missing in Florida after he and another off-duty Jacksonville Firefighter didn't return from a boating trip. The US Coast Guard and other agencies are actively searching for the two. Just an FYI.

    My current employer just got a questionnaire that they have to fill out and fax back that came with a copy of the release of info waiver you had to sign and turn in with the PHQ
