    Flipper,

    Decided to take the one time waiver. Currently, Iam a fulltime Firefighter/Paramedic in Oregon timing is not right for me now to make the move. How long do you think they will keep the list???

    1 year, often extended to 2.
    Good list to be on this year, as not as many candidates passed the written as have in recent years.

    Word is that the list will be at least 1 year, probably 2.
    Mitllesmertz1 is right.

    Default Two year list?

    So despite the fact that last years was a one year list they still might consider the current list to be used for two years? If so that is great news. I took the PAT and am hoping to hear good news for oral boards. Does anyone work or know anyone on Tacoma Fire Dept.? Just wondering if anyone has heard how many recruits Tacoma might hire for the Feb. 2009 recruit class.

    I am currently a Paramedic out in OK, and due to circumstances out of my control I had to do a "one-time" opt out of the PAT this go around but was very pleased with my written score. I am glad I didn't waste the additional $$ to fly out to take the PAT only to hear a few weeks later about the hiring freeze.

    Does anyone know if this list will be used for the 2011 (rumored) hiring? I assume that it will potentially be used, but obviously I don't know for sure.

    Thanks and good luck to you all!
