      Rook,

      Subscribe to this thread and when I hear something I'll let you know. I do know that they are giving the civil service test soon. So I assume the next class should be starting around July.

          Although I'm not with Baton Rouge Fire Department, one thing confuses me....do I understand this correctly, you are going through the application process for both the Baton Rouge Fire Department AND the Baton Rouge Police Department? What do you want to be, a cop or a firefighter? Or are you just trying to land any old civil service job?


          Seems to me that if you are truly committed to being a firefighter, you wouldn't bother trying to become a police officer (or vice-versa). They're both noble callings, but they're not the same. Decide what you want to be.

My dream — and I hope you don't find this too crazy — is that I would like the people of this community to feel that if, God forbid, there were a fire, calling the fire department would actually be a wise thing to do. You can't have people, if their houses are burning down, saying, 'Whatever you do, don't call the fire department!' That would be bad."

            He works an opposite shift at another station in our district. Next time I see him I have to ask what happened.

            Rook,

            It would be a good idea to get the EMT-B cert before you apply. Thats the reason I'm on the job. Most people who get hired here know someone.

                    Sorry I took so long to get back. I worked with Benny my second shift on the floor. He's a Capt on the Ladder at #3 on A shift. If I were you i'd try to get in touch, he may be helpful to you.

                        Update: BRFD

                        Rook,

                        Saw a department memo the other day stating that they are getting ready to start the hiring process. They are shooting for another class by the second week of July. TABE test sometime around mid-April / beginning of May. Ability test late May / June.
