    Has anyone heard anything about the Cranston Fire Test? It seems to be taking a long time....

    Cranston fire exam

    I heard from a few members of the dept. that they had to put it on hold due to the fact that the Police written and agility exam was going on. I know that the swim test for the fire dept. is going to be during Feb. vacation.

    Did you take N.K.'s last night?

    What did you think about either test, Cranston or N.K.'s??

      update on Cranston FF exam

      I just got off the phone with someone in the Personnel office at City Hall, they were told to tell anyone who calls that they have not sent out the tests to be graded and do not have an idea of when the results will be mailed out.

                I got a letter saying I passed but my score wasn't high enough to move forward in the process.....do you think if people can't pass the swim test they will call those of us back who passed? It is strange that less then a week ago these tests weren't even graded...

                    Why take so many people to the swim test if they are only hiring 15 guys...

                      Exactly!!!!!!!!!
                      I dont know why depts do this. I dont imagine that someone with a just passing score is going to jump approx 120 other guys based upon an interview. I would hate to see that guy take 2 days out of work to swim and climb a ladder all while needing a miracle to get on. Maybe im that guy maybe im not either way that sucks. That being said, ive never run a test so maybe those guys do have a shot for all i know. Just seems unlikely.

                        I heard that there isn't an interview... so i checked all the paperwork and there is no mention of one in any of it....so how are they going to eliminate people?

                          I cant imagine there being no interviews. Who the hell knows in this damn state tho.

                            After the swim and ladder climb, the list will come out in order of the scores. There is an interview when a class is going to start but only for the number of guys going on. The reason they keep a lengthy list is because essentially you are all taking every test that is being offered from every city. Typically, the guys scoring near the top of this test are doing the same in every other city. Warwick or EP may have hired guys before Cranston did and Cranston may have to go to #7 to get the first guy. The other thing we have run into is the EMT-C requirement. You don't need it to take the test but if you don't have it when they call, you are getting skipped. They won't hear anything about you being in school for it. If you come out at the top of the list you will get hired, plain and simple(at least in Cranston).

                              Hmm, well that sounds reasonable. So glad I went to cardiac school when I did. I know at least 10 guys who took it without having cardiac thinking they would get a year to have it. Wish I knew my score lol.
