    Well i found out today I passed my State exam, both parts! I appreciate all of the opinions and advice from all. I have to say it feels really good to accomplish something I wanted so bad. A weight has been lifted. This is just the beginning...

    My only advice for taking the State Test has already been covered. LISTEN! If you mess up one little thing (such as not keeping the written face down until the examiner tells you to flip it over), the examiner will eat you for breakfast. That's never a good thing to first thing in the morning.

    I was down in Escambia County (Pensacola) in February and I have a couple of friends working for ECFR, one being a BC tell me that they are about to hire in April/May timeframe. Pensacola is alot easier to live in since the cost of living is MUCH Lower than S Florida.

    Thanks Lillybear and Chief Chuck. I checked the state site this morning and got the official word that I did pass the test. (93 on the written and passed the practical) Modern technology is awsome! I go to my graduation ceremony tomorrow. Now all I have to do is find a job!

    If you know your stuff, don't sweat it

    We did our written Monday and practical Tuesday. Everybody in our class passed the written and a few have to go to Ocala for parts of the Tripple. It was just nerves. I am 99.9999% sure that I am not one of them. I can tell you that the examiners are stern but fair. The biggest thing other than knowing your stuff is NO TALKING and LISTEN. Good luck!!

    The big 3 is not hard, if you prepare. Our instructors had us living and breathing the big 3. The hardest part will be the written. The practicals I had was tying tools, working from a ladder, fire attacks, and disoriented firefighter. good luck

    Big 3 is SCBA donning in 1:45 or less
    1 3/4" min.man pull in 2:30 or less
    Ladder raise 24' in 2:45 or less
    Then skills demonstration, state proctor can ask for anything.
    Then 100 question exam.

    I'm not sure if OOS is different, the above is what we are being told as of right now for in state. I also heard next year you might have to have EMT as a pre-requiste for FF academy. 5 weeks left for me!!
