Carbondale is testing in July, but after talking to someone in Human Resources, it doesn't sound like they will be hiring anyone soon. Belleville will be increasing their staff by 12 off of their current list (from the Chief) and will retest in late spring/early summer of 2010. Check with Edwardsville, they should be testing again soon, and a fellow FF just left STLFD to go to Woodriver. Granity City seems to hire often, and if you are a Medic, Collinsville would be a good shot. Oh, don't know if you are interested, but Decatur is currently takin apps.

To reiterate the above comment, I would focus on areas that are growing on the east side of St. Louis. I would test at Collinsville, Edwardsville, (both should be testing within the next year) and Belleville (no EMS!) and at Mt. Vernon ( I believe they tested last year). Most other departments are POC or have a small paid contingent. Let us know if there are any I left out!
