    Got the email too. Here's a question, they said that the top 100 scores will advance to the PAT, then the top 30 will get an oral interview...

    I'm new to all this so... if the PAT is a pass/fail test, how do they narrow it down to 30? Let's suppose out of the 100 that move onto the PAT, about 80 of them pass. So what determines the top 30?

    Probably a dumb question, I just don't know the answer.

    Thanks

    Good question fireproof, I was going to ask the same thing. Also, firemedicfndz, what does the test look like? civil service or fire/ems? I haven't had a chance to buy/download the study guide yet.

    Is it fire / ems or general smarts.

    I'm guessing general smarts as they didnt mention what book they would be testing out of. (no guarantee either way tho)

    its fire/EMS related but its general knowledge...if u took the miami dade fire rescue test its exactly like it. if u buy the packet, purchase the enhanced version it has 100 questions and gives u an idea whats on it

    Just wondering what study guide/packet your referring to? Do you mean something like Barron's Firefighter Exams?

    good luck to all of you taking the test...

    just some info, if you don't get on , but are interested in staying in the area and trying further, Sarasota County does have a volunteer program out of several stations, it might be a way to keep your hand in and get noticed (I don't know if they give any preference on their hiring process to volunteers or local residents though.)
