    Default Salt Lake City Fire Department Test...

    I just got my letter to test in Salt Lake City in May. Does anyone know which test they give? CPS, CWH, FireTeam/Ergometrics? I test well, but hate the FireTeam test (it's the only test I've ever failed), so I want to figure out if it's worth my while to make the trip or to spend my money on another trip.

    Good question, but I hope its not CPS or CWH. I have taken each test once and in my opinion, those tests are the most ridiculous tests that I have ever taken.

    Any other information on this department or test would be greatly appreciated. I don't know much about this department, and want to see if I should spend the time and money to test there.

    Default study guides?

    Does anyone know if there are study guides for these tests? If those are the tests. Sometimes just asking human resources works.

    I just realized that I completely forgot about this test. I was so worried/focused on my Portland stuff, that this completely slipped my mind.

    So frustrated right now. SLC is definitely a top 5 job for me. And I live right here in the city.

    Hope everyone that took the test did well!

    From what I remember SLC HR said that they'd be sending out letters around the 21st. So some of us will have a longer wait than others. I think the BPAD is the next step if you're selected.

    If you're moving on you should have heard by now. I live in Montana and my letter was on my doorstep this morning when I got in from work.

    Default Bpad

    Anyone have any ideas as to what to expect for the BPAD? I read it was videotaped. Do I wear a cheeky little suit and look pretty?

    Anyone on here know about SLC FD, outside of what is on there Union website or the City website?

    It'd be great to know about their fire ground tactics, how traditional they are/aren't, how they handle medical calls, what the department morale/pride is like, how much fire they see, things like that.

    Got the letter today. Check your mailbox. Sounds like commission will certify list next week and then CPAT 8/7.

    Anyone else get a letter?

    No idea. I am moving on, but I'm not in a great position... Of course that all depends on how many people they're actually going to hire. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on that out there and I have no idea how large Classes are with SLCFD. I've seen classes of less than 5 people in the past, but that was years (3) ago.

    Default Heard Anything?

    Anyone out in UT heard anything about how high they may go on this list? Rumors, I know but it'd be nice to at least know something.

    Did anyone else get their interest cards in for the test this coming May 2012? I will be flying out from California to take the test, looking forward to the process. Any other takers?

    I also signed up for the test. I've been trying to find some information about SLCFD but can't find much. Anyone know how many FF's work for the city and what the average tempo of hiring is like?

    It seems like any info for SLC is harder to obtain than other agencies I have researched in the past. Any SLC firefighters here on the forum? Or people who tested 2 years ago could chime in as well...

    cheers

    Salt Lake City Fire Department administers an entry level testing process every two years to establish a list of qualified firefighter and firefighter/paramedic candidates. We will begin accepting names for the next Interest List on January 1st, 2014.

    They just had the interest period open from January till a week ago or so. SLC is somewhere I have been wanting to test so I kept an eye on the website.


    Anyone else sign up? Its funny looking at the FDNY thread and comparing it to this one. Even if there were 10% the number of people testing in SLC vs. FDNY we may be able to gather a bit more info on the dept and process. Oh well, looking forward to it nonetheless!

    Looks like they ran 2 academies this past year. Didn't see any numbers for class size though.
