  • Bloomington, IL Fire Testing

    Hi all-

    I thought I would start a thread for those of us who are going through the testing process with Bloomington Fire. How did you all think the written test went?

  • #2
    In one word, rough.

      I agree. I'd have rather taken my state paramedic test again than that.

            That's not terrible... When I took Springfield it was 800...

            Either of you taking the consortium at College of Dupage?

                I don't know much of anything about the test at College of Dupage. Care to elaborate how that works? I'm from down by Springfield and just now starting to test in Chicagoland, starting with Schiller Park this weekend.

                  They do a consortium test every quarter of the year... Usually there a quite a few that do it. This time there is just two departments (Glenside & Lombard). If you go to www.publicsafetyrecruitment.com that will be able to get you the information.

                  If you have any other questions let me know.

                  Did you test for Springfield then?

                    I didnt test for this one because I didnt realize they said you did not need FF2 until after the date passed, kinda ****ed.

                    As for the COD consortium I have a quick question. Where do you obtain all the information you need for the application? Things such as accidents and stuff? Would I be better off contacting my insurance agent or going to the county clerks office?

                    Thanks for any and all help.

                      When you sign up, and they send you the information, there is about 11 pages of the application you need to fill out.

                      Should be in there.

                        Also, I took the test yesterday... You guys were right it was pretty rough.. The questions were a good challenge, the only I wished for was more time...

                        The Training Chief advised he will be making phone calls to the top 25 next week.
                        Sincerely,

                          Bloomington started calling applicants today. They aren't releasing where you rank on the list though.

                            Didn't recieve a phone call... Well, that was my second test I've ever taken, so I guess that was bound to happen.

                            Good luck to the rest of you in the testing process!
