    I had talked to Capt Hemmingway about a month ago and she told me that the dept wasnt looking to hire FF/EMT till sometime 2011. My status is up in june i have been on the list of firefighter emt for 2 years, just at the wrong place and the wrong time with out the medic cert. This is good news for those still trying. I was just hired by Loudoun county and will be starting on the 29th of April. It seems like the area as a whole is moving forward. For those on the list good luck!
    Congrats! Like I tell everyone else, apply to all the places you can. Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

          Congrats! Shine your shoes, pull the strings from your uniform, bring all issued equipment to the academy on the first day after orientation, and do some running in the meantime to condition against shin splints. They like distance running there for some reason. It's slow, but will still give you shin splints if you don't condition for it.

          Check out The Academy OCFA on the Fox Reality Channel. It's similar to our academy in many ways. They do harder PT, though.

                          • Heard down from the grapevine that there will only be 10 EMT spots, the rest will be ALS. That class is going to be a good time and good experience, you'll be getting Lt. Woodward who's just wreaks of experience. One of the ol' 47 ein's. Next class is in january so start applying and get it in soon.
