    I have been following this thread recently as I am waiting for budget issues to to allow FD to hire. I am currently a firefighter for the city of dallas but originally from Ca, as I would like to come back home to work for a big Dept. I emailed the women from HR for the city of SF and she told me 2014 is when the next selection and testing process would be.

    Anything new? Should we still expect (hope for) a tower this summer?

    http://news.yahoo.com/vitality/ Saw this video on yahoo news today, found it interesting. This guy scored a 938 and was half way down page 2 of the list. So I assume this 1st round they may have not made it past the first two pages. Unless volunteers were picked up that were further down also.

    I heard they went through page 5 for the first class. It would be interesting to find out how they actually decide on who to hire.

    I just read the Mayor Lee is requesting a budget that will run two classes of 42 through in the next two years. If approved, it says this is the biggest commitment to hiring in years by the city. It also mentioned that the goal is to get the number of line personnel back up to above 1500 and they are currently at 1275. The chief is saying 1500 is where they need to be at to keep minimum staffing without draining the coffers with overtime. It'll be interesting to see if it passes. Here is the article if you're interested.

    From the 6/14/12 SF Fire Commissioners meeting:

    Announcements:
    The plan to bring in a new class of 42 H-2 firefighters is expected to occur in September of
    this year. Ten of those members will be coming from Station 49. 32 will be picked from
    the current H-2 list.

    I'm hearing rumors that some emails have been sent out. Anyone receive one?

    The rumors are true. I received an email yesterday. It was an invitation to sign up for a physical with the department physician. Physicals begin this week. I counted 57 appointments when I chose mine. Some of the appointments were already taken so I don't know the exact number. I'm shaking with excitement. Good luck to everyone on the list.

    Get ready ! Word is the tower will start in August. We put an internal announcement out to hire additional Lt.'s to instruct this class. The single function EMT & Paramedics started their academy last Monday and it'll be going on as the H2's start theirs.

    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.
