    I think a little over 3,000 applied. Just recently a SAFER grant was awarded to assist in hiring.. the rumors are around 90 hires.. maybe more.

    what? I heard they could be hiring up to 300. Apparently close to 200 are set to retire and the PGFD chief wants to hire another 100 on top of that. Is there any truth to this?

    test was very similar to the Montgomery County test with less questions. so much that i was one of the first to finish. but i didnt know the rule about the 12 month period with the CWH test.

    Nope, but keep in mind they are using the same testing company as Montgomery co. They got results late, so I would say it's fair to say it's going to be a while longer!!!!

    Just got my letter today, and it stated the following; I scored a 75, not my best score, but I passed. and that if you scored a 85 or above the Co. will be contacting you. If you score is between 70 and 85 you will be contact as see fit. So my question is do I still stand a chance on getting a call to move on w/ the process and get hired? or is this just a another "be put on a list sorta thing"?

    i called and was told the top 250 candidates will receive a letter proceeding with the background check. The top 400 will receive a letter with info on the CPAT orientation.

    Question

    Got my letter for CPAT! So is the backround check info to be included with my CPAt letter, or will it be a seperate letter? And if I don't get a backround package, i'm in top 400?

    Was the info on the cpat or background on one letter or was a second sent? I received one letter with my score, which was above 85%, and it said I would be contacted. I am checking to see if I should be on the lookout for another letter or not.

    Does anyone have any specifics on the academy? How many people do they usual run in a class? How many classes do they run at the same time? If they hire the 94 from the safer grant will that most likely be broken up into 2 academy classes, and if so concurrently or one after the other?

    Rumors are after a recent election there will be a new County Exec in office and a new Fire Chief...is that good or bad for the hiring process?
