    Hearing all kinds of numbers being thrown around. The most consistent are 14 getting picked up in October to fill vacancies. And 15 more in November for a new tower and rescue going in service (rumor mill says T-15 and R-14)

          2nd interviews were held last week. Calls were made for new hire class to start in October.

            Indeed, heard 16 people got the nod.

            Curious lomus... Are you a medic, because everyone seems to be hearing that only medics were getting picked up in October.

            Still rumors flying around about tower 15. It looks as if it may not happen in November. Rather the city is going to wait until ISO says "you need this tower here" and then put it in service. As far as anyone knows, ISO doesn't come back until January 2017, so look for another group of 15 (plus retires/promotions) coming then.

              Yes I am a medic. From everyone I spoke to it looked like the majority were medics being interviewed.

                Still no definite word on what's going on with hiring. Anyone out there who interviewed and might have got an actual start date feel free to chime in.

                The last rumors I picked up on was mid November. While others I've talked to (a few actually) said they heard it might not be till the new year. I'm hoping that's not the case for you guys, maybe what they heard was "new FISCAL year" and they just goofed up. (We just started that in October)

                Anywho. What I've heard in the field AND training is its close to 20 in the first group. That I can see, since a look at the entire dept right now has us down 30 members. And that's not listing people who retire in a few months and other unexpected ones. That's straight vacancies on the shift rosters. So there's a great chance we hire between 30 and 45 off this list. Good luck to all!

                  I had my interview in August and never heard back. Does anyone have any insight on the next steps in the process? Since I didn't hear anything back about a second interview am I pretty much done or is there still a chance for me to move on in the process? Any info would be much appreciated.

                      Does anyone have any idea what the start date is for this first class?

                        I've heard they're going to start a class at the end of the month. Nothing official yet tho. The lieutenants test is currently underway so when that's finished they will probably start the new hires. It supposed to be finished mid December but they might be hurrying them thru the process b/c we are so short on lieutenants

                          Curious if anyone has heard anything about a second group of new hires coming in spring 2017?
