    Does anyone have any information on the New Haven fire department? I’m curious how busy they are, and if they do allot of fires. Any info would help.

  • #2
    Lots of BLS EMS for the engine crews. They run two ALS ambulances to supplement AMR as needed.

    As far as fires, nothing unusually crazy.
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

          From my understanding they are one of busiest departments in the state. They are looking to hire 10 this year then over the next 3 years 20 more each year!

            New Haven - Nepitism at its best!!! Take the test for experience but don't expect to get on, no matter what your score is.

              Go to the dept. page and click on the 2005 fire marshals report, it gives a breakdown of all fires, ems etc.

                Anyone know if they are using CPAT or thier own agility test?

                  I don't believe they will be using the CPAT, I think they use their own physical agility test.

                              test is a joke, plain and simple, they hire who they think they need to make it a more diverse deptartment, like mentioned above take it for experience but dont hold out like i said the city and the vulcan society and the firebirds want certain people to get hired so its a wash, im taking the test for experience thats it.
