    Red face Raleigh NC process

    Im currently in the hiring process for City of Raleigh. I am coming from Virginia with 6 years as a career Medic/Firefighter. Anyone have any tips or inside connections of people I can talk to? I have a very extensive training background and hope some of it will transfer down there. ????????

    I am in the same boat, I am coming from West Virginia and testing in Raleigh on June 17th. I have been a paid FF/LT for 8 years. Any info from anyone would be greatly appreciated.

    Also does anyone know why they do not use the CPAT in Raleigh?

    It would appear that the process moves very fast since they want to start the academy on Aug 25. I also heard they were wanting to open a new station in 2009 which means more openings for us. All the info I have gotten is off of their website.

    Good Luck

    Default Raleigh process

    I was down there this weekend and took there practice test and checked out the agility portion. I didnt here about the new station but it wouldnt surprise me. That would make it #27!!! I heard that their is about 700-800 people trying out and they might be having an academy of 60. The largest they ever had!

    Hi guys,

    From what we've heard here, they're hiring 30 for the 8/25 class and hiring again in the spring.

    Whenever the new firehouse gets built, that'll be #29 and it has atleast 15 people allocated. There's also an attempt to add another ladder company to the city, which is another 15 which equals your 30.

    Guys,

    We've heard they were hriing 30. Whenever they build the next firehouse, it'll be Station 29, but only the 28th for the city due to #1 having Engines 1 and 13.

    We also heard they were starting another process in the spring of 09. Good luck in the process.
