    Default Question about the app.

    Hey,
    Did anyone who submitted their app. electronically get a confirmation? How long before you got it? I sent mine thursday night and I haven't heard anything.

    I figure if I don't here anything by monday I'll call them.

    Thanks.

    For those of you that sent their apps in electronically, you should be getting an email.

    Q. Will you notify me when you receive my application?
    A. Yes, we will email you when we receive your application if you attach the application to an
    email and email it to
    ffapplication@tvfr.com. If you mail or hand-deliver the application,
    you will not hear from us until we assign your test date and time.

    Default the email

    I just waited until the opening closed, then got an email today. I figured they would wait until they had all the applicants and then send out an email to all. good luck everyone.

    I know a few people who got their test dates already; they had gotten their applications in early.

    I still haven't got confirmation of my application. I'm sure they are just inundated with applications and are working through it.


    edit: Jut got confirmation and testing dates.

    Good luck to all taking the TV Fire & Rescue test, I had an out of state instructor giving a class for officers on how to manage shifts, crews, personalities, keeping guys happy on the job etc...anyways I was very impressed with how he treated his crews. Come to find out he is the assistant chief for TVFR. I have also had several friends take the test and make the journey down from Seattle. Sounds like there was a decent study guide that they gave to the candidates before hand which had a ton of info for the test on it. Good luck all.

    Just wanted to let everyone know that TVF&R is now accepting applications for a lateral academy slated to start around the end of May. So if you or anyone you know meets the criteria and are looking to move to a different department here is your chance to apply.

    All of the information can be found here.

    They confirmed my test date and time via e-mail a few days ago. I think they will get around to everyone in due time. Good luck to everyone - looks like a great department.

    Default Hiring Budget

    Does anyone know how many they are planning on hiring?

    Is this money secured or is the budget still being worked on?

    If the money is secured does anyone know to what extent it is protected from changing? Or to what could cause it to change?

    Thanks

    The letter they handed us after the written exam stated that they anticipate hiring 12-15 people for the Fall 2009 academy. As far as I know their budget is secured through 2011 based on the bond that was voted on a few months back. Hope this helps, good luck.
