  • Open Application Period For Non-medics

    The county is opening the appication process for non-medics from Nov. 7th through Nov 18th only. I would download an app. now, or drop by the Massey Building to pick one up if you're local.

          My bad, the link worked when I was logged on. The went right over my head for some reason. It was an IB that I came across on my county e-mail.

          Just submit what you need to when the process opens up. I would fill out the proper PPW now, check with recruitment just to make sure that you've given everything that's needed, and send it in on the 7th. The position should open up on this page:

          https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/jobs/listing/listing.asp

          See "to apply" -

          https://www.fairfaxcounty.gov/jobs/l...sp?job=11-9023

          This isfrom the firefightter/paramedic job opening, but this should be the same process and documentation you'll need when the FF app. period opens up.

                • From Recruitment:

                  "Please monitor our website. You will be able to download and submit an application from the time period of November 7-18.

                  Captain H."

                  Be patient we just have to wait for it to open on November 7 to start filling out the app.

                      I was trying to say that you could at least download an application from that link, and just submit it after the non-medic hiring interval begins. The forms should be identical, just that it won't go through until the 7th of Nov.

                          as per the teleconference.

                          yes they are anticipating atleast 60 new hires. (not sure ratio between medics and firefighters) but both the Mid October class and the newly EXPECTED January class are going to have FF and Medic positions.

                          This application for FF/EMT position. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE ANY CERTIFICATIONS. Any joe schmoe off the street can apply.

                              24 on, 24 off, 24 on, 24 off, 24 on, 96 off. It's a variation of the 24/48.
                              In most cases, you can't be held over or work OT if this results in the employee working in excess of 36 hours in a 48 hour period.

                              • Hello all, I am just joining this forum. Thank you to those that have provided so much helpful "inside" information.

                                Like a few others in this thread, I too have completed the recruitment process and received my letter in mid September. I'm a medic and hoping to be selected for 133rd academy.

                                If selected, I would be relocating to the area with my wife and 10 month old son.

                                I have read that the 133rd could be starting in January. Does anyone know if this has been confirmed? Any word on how many (FF's and FF/PM's) they will be selecting? Do you know when they will be notifying those they select?
