  • Aurora Fire Department

    Anyone else on applying for Aurora? I turned in everything, and have my information packet.

    I get 5 preference points, but it seem like the only way you can get 10 is if you live in the city of Aurora.
    Sincerely,

    Applied and passed FireTeam, but no word on bands yet. Getting 10 pts (5 for Veteran, 5 for Disabled Vet). Currently in the Denver FD background investigation phase as well, so we'll see which one pans out. Good luck to all!

          Don't know if anyone else on here took the test, took it this morning, and I didn't think it was too bad....

          I have pretty good memory skills, so it was an advantage to me. Good luck to everyone else!

            I took it this morning as well. It felt like less info to memorize than last time, no symbols, no tools/uses, 2 simple layout compared to the more in depth layouts, just felt like much more emphasis on the math. I know I got 1 wrong for sure, but I'm pretty confident on the rest. At least this time I have preference points.

            I'm still on the current list so I'm hoping for something from that or this one.

              Good luck to you! I would say I feel pretty confident... I'm really good at math, and just couldn't remember 1 from the picture questions, and 1 from the stories questions... So I'm just hoping everything went well...

              I get points as well... I get the 5 medic points.

              Did you notice that Chief Carlson took the test with us???

                  I think he was there to feel the vibe of the people testing... I'm sure he wasn't the happiest person when he looked around and saw people sleeping...

                  What department are you on t1tan?

                        congrats! I got a 95 my number is just over 110. Im suprised I thought I would have scored higher. I think they said 450 people tested for aurora.

                          Nice job to both of you! I was hoping for a top 20 finish... Currently I am #26 with a score of 100.

                          I guess we will see how many go through the polygraph process and make it through it...

                          The letter stated they are taking the first 20, so depending on if some people don't make it, I am right there!

                            Anyone know if the 7 that are supposed to get hired off the old list took this written?

                              Last I've heard there's no confirmed 7 individuals to be hired yet, at least no job offers, but some of the people fully through the process that I know, did take this test.

                              As far as we can tell, they're holding off on the 7 until they can confirm the SAFER grant one way or the other to decide on 7, or 17, instead of starting a class then starting another a month later for the rest. From what I've heard, proposed start date of the academy for the 7-17 is Oct 20.
