    Default Akron Fire Recruitment

    Does anyone have any new info on the fire recruiting going on at Akron? I know they were looking at the top 120 placements, but I was told they are dropping like flies due to backgroung investigatons, drug use, records...I was ranked 137 w/o any extra credit or previoues knowledge. I heard they were going to have a fall acadamy. Any info will be appreciated.

    A class of 45 has been hired with a possible start date in August. I have also heard there with be a second hiring before the test runs out. I know two guys who were hire and they placed in the lower 30's.

    To add to the above: I know that background investigations were completed on the top 80. I'm not sure how many of those people they went through to get the class together (I thought it was 40 though, not 45? who knows). My educated guess is somewhere around 60. I also heard they'll be doing a second class soon after this one, and there is some talk they might even try for a third before the list runs out. That is just talk though.

    TFDNick, do you know if any ended up washing out with the physical or psych? How about a more specific date for the start of the academy?

    Talked with HR this morning and they informed me that the August 4th start date is rumor. They are hoping to have all the paperwork back by the 1st with a start date in the middle or late August. I will let you know if I hear anything else.
