    umm when you called to confirm your interview why didn't you ask them to change the day, You can do that you know.

    I heard back from Mendocino a little while ago, my interview is on the 2nd I believe. If your waiting on an interview from them, don't give up hope, it could still be in the mail.

    has anybody recieved anything from San Bernardino, Riverside, or San Diego units yet? it sounds like the letters are making their rounds and i have yet to recieve anything.

    does anyone know if calfire will honor qualifications / certs. earned through the u.s. forest service?

    I just received my letter from the SLO unit two days ago and I have yet to receive anything from units South of there. In the past I had not seen letters until the middle of April and this year the letters came early, is anyone else experiencing this?

    I recieved my letter for San Diego about 2 weeks ago. I called the hotline and the message said they anticipate zero opening for the 2010 fire season. They said canidates should consider twice before making the drive.

    I have not heard from San Bernardino or Riverside.

    Hi everyone,

    I came into work this morning and saw a message for interview with Cal Fire. It is from a 909 aera code, so I assume its with Riverside. The message does not state what job its for, but I assume its either for seasonal or the ff2 tau. I just thought it was odd they called my station to set it up instead of sending out a letter. Did anyone else recieve a phone call?

    The captain that took the message wrote it down. I got the date, time and panel. No mention of what job it was for, unit or what to bring to the interview. I actually thought it was Riverside cuz of the 909 area code give.

    Attempting a Thread revival here.

    I applied to CALFIRE last season (all the northern units) and got one letter back saying i was not ranked high enough to be considered. I read the previous cert requirements listed (and some of them i must need), but I feel like I should have gotten some interviews... ANY HELP is appreciated.

    In my EMT-Paramedic Internship currently

    Season working for municipal dept in Tahoe on handcrew.

    I don't have FFT-1, 67 or FRO. <----"THE" problem(s)?
    Should I be looking at Forest Service more than CALFire???
