    Not that I could find.

    What's with the "preference for Orange County firefighters" statement? I thought they didn't lay off.
    ...at this time.

    VesMedic, are you a FF/Medic or just Medic? Also, do you live in Orange County. I think they are taking preference to people who live in or near Orange County. I've done the interview but haven't heard anything, I think they probably got there first class figured out based on the interviews going out.

    Gocanes, I am a firemedic, and yes I live in Orange county. I grew up in seminole county, which is the county north of orange ( wasn't sure if you are famliar with the area). when did you do your interview? are you a firemedic?

    I interviewed awhile ago, over 6 months ago and then they went on the hiring freeze. I'm a firemedic but haven't heard anything from them. I think they are taking preference to people living in Orange county or surrounding counties. Did you here anything about when they would be starting a class of 20 if that's the case? Also, good luck with the interview.

    id say thats probably why you haven't heard anything, because of the hiring freeze. what county do you live in? as far as classes, I probably know as much as you do, ive heard every number imaginable, I don't think anyone knows for sure. as far as preference, yea I've seen that on the website, but who knows how much of a factor that really is ya know? I assume ur from south florida?

    Yep, next week. I am also an orange county medic already as well. I have worked for rural metro ambulance as a medic, and work as a fire/medic in orange county for another department as well. So, i already have an "orange county number" and have passed protocol tests obviously. How much that helps, again, who knows for sure.

    Because the county has a bunch of "medic only" units running around the county...These people have to go to standards within 3 years. They fill in around the county as needed when the rescues are at the hospital, or out on other calls etc. Basically,a cheaper way to get the same service that the rescues are giving.

    OH also, had my interview this week guys. They were interviewing a ton of different people. I am a firemedic, but I had 2 firefighter/EMT's sitting next to me, as well as a medic only guy. I assume these are all the people off the old elgibility list. as far as how many people are on the list, THe head HR guy told us 209 people are on that list. Now, I don't know if that means people who are completely done with the process, or if thats how many are just in the process all together. He told all of us they are trying to get a class together for January or February, and that they were HOPING for 20...This is straight from the horses mouth..but as we all know, things change daily.
