    You would be starting out on the wrong foot by calling it Frisco. It's San Francisco or The City.

    Bay Area born and raised Capt. Bob. With all respect, "Frisco" is another well known short term for San Francisco. Well, at least to folks who live in the cities that surround "the city". Thanks, i'll remember that though.

    very cool, I will be starting my paramedic internship right around the time the tower starts. Hopefully 2014 will work out well for me. I did a ride along with a SFFD a month ago and they said this academy should be at least 40

    Just out of curiosity, what does probation in SFFD consist of? i.e. quarterly tests, daily evals etc? And roughly what percent of people get let go during probation?

    its up to the department. if you want to work for SF, it shouldn't matter what day of the week is. you should show up when they tell you to

    You are right. I only ask because I am a FF for a big city in another state and im from ca. I will be in paramedic school shortly until April or may, in which they send us. Just hoping I can make the test, just have to keep my faith. I aappreciate the replies though.

    go on to sf-fire.org and submit an interest card for H2. The key is to test well, going through paramedic school is extremely helpful. But with SFFD 9/10 times ou have to finish your probation an challenge SF county paramedic protocols before you can become an H2(P). The word is the next test is Feb 2014. Currently SFFD is around 300 short due to retirements, so keep you head down and your nose clean. Firehouse is a great resource, people in the bay area are always posting about local depts. let me know if you have any further questions

    What is going on with San Fran FD?? Not a very good couple of months worth of news stories that make you wonder whats up. First the drunk engineer, then the plane crash, and now this? They are loosing it!!

    Does anyone know what scores on the Video portion of the NTN test are likely to get an interview? It's eating me up inside waiting for these cutoff scores.
