    I took the test last year. I can't remember what I scored but it wasn't high enough to move forward. The only thing that was much different about the test than any other city was the beginning portion. They pass out a booklet containing information about a fictional city and some of the events that have happened there regarding various emergencies. The booklet was about 5 pages long, if I remember correctly, and they gave us 20 minutes to look it over. Then it was collected and we started our test. Last year there were about 150 at the test. I asked how many they were hiring this year when I turned in my packet and she said they usually hire 6 or 7 a year. Good luck

    I called this morning and was kinda shocked with my 92. Thought I did much better.... who knows how they grade those personality questions. She said it would be posted soon on the website and that was at 9ish.

    I got an 88. About what I expected. I took it last year and got about the same. I don't really understand the interests section and it's such a large portion of the test. 92 is good enough for a call back, good luck.

    I would edit that to take out your rank. It is better to stay somewhat anonymous to everybody reading. Tiebreakers are done medic-fire-last name.

    are you on a dept already...with you being a medic you should be able to get hired on easily...a ton of places were testing that required you to be a medic

    hmmm...that makes since & I've been wondering. I'm not a medic, no ff cert & my last name begins with a w!

    I said this before, but I'm changing my name to Aardvark! That'll bump me up.

    I have heard officially 1 from Carrollton (FF & Human Resource), with probably a few more coming due to retirees.
