    Several months later, how do things look in the city? Any rumors of mass retirements and the need for an academy class? Any luck at all for someone looking to be a big city firefighter?

    Any updates on if and when Baltimore plans to test again? I was denied employment from the second class due to a medical issue which has since been fixed. Is it worth calling HR or is the list even active still?

    Was told the list is still active until Nov 2013. There are no plans to hire another class at the moment and they just closed companies.

    I can't believe they are going to be doing another CPAT. last I heard is they weren't going to be hiring anytime soon... Not to be negative but that's what the guys in the field are saying... (Nothing official)

    My Paramedic PAT is in a couple of weeks. The rumor I've heard is they may scrap the class for EMT/FFs. Mind you that's only rumors I've heard.

    For a city that is having a incredibly hard time retaining its police force due to the same "hiring goals", this is going to be awesome. Watch that 1.88 ff per 1,000 drop to LAFD levels. You want to appeal to minorities? No, you want to appeal to the people that want this job the most. Why? Because the public needs to trust us and especially in Baltimore where a street vendor selling hot dogs makes more than good guys and girls at BCFD.

    Don't forget the city attempting to slash the pension every budget cycle. Really makes recruitment & retention difficult if your future 25 years down the line is uncertain because career politicians are more worried about what pleases the moochers than those who protect lives & property in the city.
