    Not for a little while, but it all depends on what happens with the reform of the pension bill.
    You testing the 4th?

    What does the reform of the pension bill have to do with hiring?

    They reform it to something undesirable for the current staff, then they will take what they can get and go while the going is still good.

    That means lots of open spots.

    Does anyone have experience working as an EMPACCT paramedic. I was fortunate enough to move to the second phase of HCFR's paramedic recruitment. I'm somewhat apprehensive about possibly taking a job as a medic and not being able to be a firefighter for four years.

    I wouldn't do it myself, but it depends on your personal situation.

    I can't recall specific questions, but I will say I thought there were alot of pharmacology questions in proportion to other questions. It seemed as if the questions were either very difficult or very easy... not too much in the middle. Overall I thought it was a good test...very much like the one you would take for your paramedic class final. Did anyone else make it through to the Interviews?

    I was the last to interview today.
    3 Medics are to be hired.
    I do my megacode first thing tomorrow morning, then back to Jersey to work more OT.

    I have a good feeling about it this time.

    firemedic trainee. 99% of the time it's ff/emt's (need medic within 2 years) but it can be paramedic only (need fire within 2 years). this is not the same as an empacct medic.

    Hey congrats, did you only get picked up as a Paramedic only or as a Firemedic?

    The empacct medics-are they all the single role medics from when they consolidated with EMS?
