    Those of you that made the cut, explain how you answered the questions on the video portion of the test. How indepth did you go? The first example with the blood on the sidewalk, policy says to do this, officer says to do something else, girl member not to mess up nails. Etc.

    And congrats to those of you that made it!

    I think that i stated that I would volunteer to clean the whole mess up (remember it was raining?) and would follow SOPs. As far as the statement about the female I think I stated that I would ignore that statement and just deal with the task at hand. It felt like I sat there forever waiting for the time to expire for each question. i just tried to make sure that I focused on scene safety, patient care, respecting the public, and following SOPs. I hope that this helps.

    First off congrats to those that made it on to this department.

    To those that were hired and made it to some of the final interviewing process, im curious as to what kind of course of experience and training you guys went threw to make this far? i.e. previous jobs, additional training, Or any other edge that you took that helped get your name above the rest.

    thanks for the heads up guys.

    10 were hired. I believe that 8 were medics.

    1- medic/no experience
    2-medic/1yr. firefighter experience
    3-ff/emt/ 6 yrs. firefighter experience (42 yrs. old)
    4-medic/ no experience
    5- medic/3 yrs firefighter experience
    6- medic/ 2 yrs firefighter experience
    7- medic/ ambulance experience
    8-medic/ no experience

    this is not the rank and i am not sure about the other 2 that were hired. MBFD went strictly off of the best test scores and i can tell you that the background investigation is very thorough; it eliminated alot of people. MBFD actually goes out and talks to a bunch of your neighbors. i hope that this helps.

    Giga thanks! That gives me a good picture as to what this department was looking for. Seems like they preferenced guys that were already on the job.

    Is there any other training besides being duel certified and having department experience that you could recommend? I know that departments prefer on the job training, but with the way hiring is going thats not much of a option.

    Im practically duel cert. and working as a life guard for a county park, and also fighting to get a tech gig in the ER at the moment.. i just want to have all my angles covered once my name is called.

    Once again any info is much appreciated.
