    Default For all the Newark Hopefuls...

    "Lalor said the busy weekend illustrated the need for more firefighters in the city, something the Department will try to address in the coming weeks. The 2010 firefighter recruitment campaign kicked off at City Hall today, and Lalor said the Department is hoping to add 20 rookies to bolster its ranks."

    Nice hamhands.

    You sound just like a person we want working with us. You need to get a clue. If you really thinks he is going to get guys with 25+ years to retire so he will hire young "bucs" like you, I have news for you.

    negative there in with other paid/volunteer depts in northern NJ. Northern NJ does not have a lot of paid depts like other parts of the country. Clifton had a station closed but then reopened it after some negotiation on the city and dept. These hires are basically just hires for retirements.

    The firefighter announcement was released January 1,
    2010. Please direct all applicants to our website,
    http://www.state.nj.us/csc/public_sa...ighters_titles
    .htm, for applications and orientation guides.
    PLEASE NOTE: The application filing deadline
    has been extended until May 31, 2010. However, the
    “closing date” remains March 31, 2010. In other
    words, all requirements (except High School Degree or
    equivalent) MUST be met by the closing date, but
    candidates who meet the requirements may apply to
    take the exam until May 31, 2010. The written exam is
    projected for the Fall 2010 with the Physical
    Performance Test (PPT) to follow in the spring of
    2011.



    good if you are on the old list. new list from what i understand above will only be active around November 2011? making the old list 4 yrs old ? I guess those firefighters at the training center where right when they said that the "07 list was the list to be on" to bad we ran into tough economic times and only a few guys got hired last year.

    Some news for everyone on the Jersey City list. They have applied for the SAFER grant to put on 43 firefighters. I suggest everyone call or write to your congressmen to ask about the status of the grant.

    anybody know why they are extending the deadline. They did do the same thing 3 years ago but that was do to a lack of applications. are they having the same problems?? or is it just standerd practice i have seen more ads for newark fd in newspapers and store fronts around newark. I even noticed a commercial on fox news and news 12 with the fire director asking people to apply for the first time today. i would imagine you would have a lot of people applying and even more vets this time do to the economy.

    not really shure what info he can give you. i think it all goes by what the towns can afford to do at this time. i would at least hope they would be filling in for at least the guys that retire. but not really shure they are doing that. during these times everybody is being asked to do more with less. so they might not even be replacing retired guys at this time. but you figure at some time they will have to. at least i hope they do

    Lightbulb Just asking

    Does anyone out there know if ACFD plans on hiring in 2010? The word is fire fighters are retiring every month and stations have to close due to lack of man power. I don't know if this is true or not just looking for some insight. If it is true that means lives are at risk both for civilians and FF.( you can't put a price on someones life just to save a buck.) Looks like the next list won't go into effect until 2011 that has to be a good thing for the guy's on the current list any opinions.

    I know ac is short and guys are leaving,but langford is out for the fire department and police department and I don't see them hiring. I am on the current list so i hope they would and at one time was optimistic they would, but now I don't know,and if I was a betting man I would say no.

    Is ACFD applying for the safer grant? How low do the numbers have to go before someone (ie the state etc.) does something?
