    • Hey has anybody heard any updates on the possible February class

      Comment


      • It will be a large class. Unknown exact start date. I would imagine calls will be starting to go out soon.

        • The latest number I heard was 80. Somehow someway, the nerds in admin came up with that magically number.

          I also heard that by July, all trucks will be staffed with 4, so I wonder is that based on this class.

          • That 80 number is both classes combined that will be in session this spring.

                  • hey I'm hoping somebody can help me out on here. Has anybody in the dept ever heard of somebody calling recruitment and talking to them saying hey I know there is a class coming up and I'm inquiring if my chances of being in that class are good because unfortunately due to say myself getting married i cant be in the academy because i need time off for the wedding and the current salary i make to pay for it. Would recruitment get frustrated at me and think I'm not dedicated to the dept or would they understand and maybe go ok you were gonna be in this up coming class but we can put you in the following one. Please any answer will be greatly appreciated thanks.

                      I have had a similar question regarding dropping medic class for recruit school, if selected. While I haven't contacted recruitment directly about it, both current and retired firefighters from the department have told me that if I turned the job down, they will not wait for me and will move on to the next person, and I may not get another chance. However, I remember seeing some posts about guys who have turned the job down, and still got called again before the two years was up.

                        Do not call and say that in my opinion. That looks really bad on your part. If you are getting married they will let you take off a day or two. A guy in my class took a couple days off to get married. That is just my opinion.

                          Yeah this looks really irresponsible. It's not recruitment's responsibility to help you plan your life out; adults handle their own business and take responsibility for managing their own life. It sounds hard but life is a series of choices between differing priorities, that won't ever change no matter how old you get.

                          You have control over when you're getting married, I find it hard to believe this just came up all of the sudden, so recruitment would probably feel the same way too and see it as someone who's unreliable or even worse, just plain doesn't have their **** together.

                          Sorry if this sounds mean, it's not intentional. Just wanted to give you the straight talk.
