  • Meriden FD??

    Has anyone heard of anything going on in meriden.
    I Know they hired two firefighters back in Octorber but I havnt heard anything as of lately.
    And the letter they sent out with results says that the list is only good for one year. Anyone heard any news with the list only lasting for one year?

    No I haven't heard anything. I had a friend who knows the cheif ask and there is nothing happening right now. I hope they extend the list for another year

        Hey crank
        I spoke with personell today and she said there is nothin doing right now. She hasn't heard a word about anything to do with fire dept. As far as extending the list she doesn't know but would think they would. I am anxious as hell. Doesn't help that I hate my current job and nothing else will do given that this IS what I want to do. Keep your fingers crossed that A: a half dozen guys retire or B: the guys ahead of us on the list get picked up by other towns and bump us up.

          I hear ya Mark. Nothing would be better then to get the call.
          I called personell two weeks ago and I got the same answers,,,, none.
          I was hoping that the member crosbow would shed some light on his dept. but i dont think he has been on.

          keep the faith
