    if you dont live in KCMO and have a valid MO drivers license dont even bother showing up at it. Plus even if you pass thier academy your not guarenteed a position.

    Default Kcmo

    It means that if you don't live in KCMO at the time your apply you will be rejected. If you don't live in KCMO you cannot apply. I'm not sure what he means by not guaranteed a position after the academy. I believe you become a probie FF after the academy, and they can release you if they want but I'm not sure. Does anyone know what month/year the list runs out?

    just to sort out the confusion:

    i believe the next test is this spring. you must be able to prove residency in kc, mo at the time of application and maintain it for the duration of your employment.

    if you pass academy, you are guaranteed a position, although you are on probation for your first year. however, if you fail your cpat, which is given 2 months into academy, you will not continue in that academy class. the initial 2 months of academy consist of classrom ff and ems training with scheduled physical training to prepare cadets to pass the cpat.

    i have heard 14 cadets are starting their 4 month academy this month. I have asked but not received an solid information about additional classes from the current list being hired prior to testing in the spring.

    however, it is common (but not guaranteed) for the department to hire people from the end of one list concurrent with the highest ranking applicants from the newly established list.

    hope that helps, sorry its taken me so long to respond, i don't check this forum very often.

    Thank you for the update. I remember two years ago there was a lot more advertisement for the hiring.

    Default Hiring Update

    I passed the initial written test along with 385 other people. Next is the videotaped structured oral interviews. They do mention in the letter that KCFD will be creating their 2 year eligibility list, but budget limitations make it unlikely that they will make any job offers this time around. This is especially disheartening for me since I will be over the 30 year old limit during the 2011 testing cycle.
