              I received my packet yesterday.

              I've heard starting salary will be approximately $37k. Does anyone know what salary can be expected after 5 years?

                Received my packet on monday. Hopefully some of us can move past the physical, that seems to be where everybody gets jammed up. To answer the last post. Go to firestation8.com you should be able to find a pay scale under the FAQ section along with a lot of other good info

                  Got my packet information. Can't fill it out until the 1st of April.

                  I'll be at the orientation, the timed test, the 2nd timed test and the actual CPAT lol... Gonna stack my cards as best as I can.

                  So we start out with 1200ish... how many normally fail the written and then the physical?

                  I've heard anything from if you pass both you only have 300-400 competitors to 50% make it past both.

                    Pay scales (although I'd do it for anything I could live on)

                    The FY2007 Public Safety Pay Plan is shown below:

                    Firefighter I (new hire) = $32,391
                    Firefighter I with Associate's Degree= $34,010
                    Firefighter I with Bachelor's Degree= $35,712
                    Firefighter I top pay= $45,579

                    Firefighter II= $37,497
                    Firefighter II top pay= $52,761

                    Engineer = $45,579
                    Engineer top pay= $58,169

                    Captain= $59,555
                    Captain top pay= $68,943

                    Haz-mat incentive= 5% of annual salary
                    Special Operations Pay (Stations 3 and 10)= 5% of annual salary

                        Roughly 50% of 1200 applicants passed the '06 written. About 350 then made it through the CPAT. I passed both and didn't hear another word...so you'll need a little luck on your side to get an interview.

                              Whats up

                              Whats up y'all! This is my second time through the process. I was pretty amazed when the Deputy Chief said they were going to hire 50-60 recruits. If anyone is new to this process, the CPAT is a killer! I didnt train well for it last year and it beat me up. I've heard that over the next 8 years they're gonna be adding at least 5 new stations and two new ladders. Haven't heard much about a fourth shift though. Good luck to everyone! I'll be at the CPAT June 4, 11:30.
