  • Gwinnett County, GA Fire Rescue hiring 2016-17

    Good morning everyone.

    Curious to see if anyone out there is in the process or has been through the process. I received a condition offer and already completed my poly, psych, physical and PPE. Ive heard from them twice since completing everything about a month ago. One to submit documents about an arrest in 2004 and for my immunization records. Ive heard the plan on starting a class in feb 2017. Anyone know how much time they give you between final offer and the start of the class? I would be moving up from south florida so im hoping they give at least a month heads up. Thanks for any info yall can provide!

    Did you end up starting the academy in February? I had a friend start that class. I am in the exact same position as you were, waiting to hear back for the next class now. Any ideas on when the next one will start?

      Can either of you guys give me some insight on the app process if I message y'all ?

        i rarely get on here but i got hired on and started Feb 1st. Ive been licensed as a paramedic in florida and preparing for the computer based testing of national registry paremedic right now. I passed the practical portion back in may.

        The app process is exactly like they have it laid out on website. The county needs medics so im assuming theyre gonna be hiring a large amount for the next year or so. Be prepared if you get hired on. The EMT and Paramedic portion of the academy moves quickly and you need to dedicate most of your time to the program. Be prepared for tough tests and quizzes every week.

        One more thing, if u havent started yet, start running to prepare yourself for pt.
