      • I'm taking the written exam on July 12th as a medic. Anyone know how many medics they are taking?

        • Anyone hear anything new about the fall class? I spoke with HR a few weeks ago and they said the details are still uncertain, but maybe someone here has heard more.

            • blachatch are you a medic and how did the process take?

              Comment


              • Yes I am a medic. I applied last August. It has been a long process. The polygraph was the only stressful part.

                • Anyone know if calls have been made for the fall class yet?

                  Comment


                  • The latest I have heard is that the class is slated to start Oct. 6.

                    From what people have said in here before, I guess we can expect 3-4 weeks ahead of that to get the calls? If anyone has a better idea of when calls generally go out I would be interested in hearing, otherwise hopefully in the next 2-3 weeks we will start to find out who is getting in.

                    • I have heard October as well from others on the department, so I think that is valid. The wait has been killing me. I was told by recruitment that my completion letter is in the mail. I guess all we can do is wait.

                      • Wait.... Lol I know there's got to be people on here that have been waiting for awhile. I have been since last October, and I'm a medic too.

                        • Yeah, I have been waiting a while as well. Finished my process last September.

                          • Well looks like the wait is quite long compared to what it used to be after receiving your letter of completion.

                            Looks like I have a long way to go.

                            • I just completed the process. I have heard that there is a ton of overtime available in this department, particulary for medics. Is there anyone out there that can confirm this? Also, I understand that there is a shift differential for being on 24 hour schedules, however, I can't find anything that explains how this works. Any insight would be appreciated.

                                Not to kill the moment here or anything, but there IS more to do than just wait. I would highly suggest (if you have not already done so) to PT of some sort after reading this post. PT is a critical part to the job, i'm sure you know, but to the Fire Chief and just as important, Basic Training. The Fire Chief himself comes out to the Academy to PT and sees his possible candidates, and Basic is no joke when it comes to PT. Be ready to run. and run. and run.
