Do you know if they are planning to hire anytime soon? I didn't notice any bonus points for FFII or Paramedic? Do you guys run ambulances or have ALS Engines? Also the physical test states events are timed but doesn't state what the limitations are? I see you guys run 24/48 are there Kelly Days as well? Sorry for all the questions, just want to make sure I have all my facts straight before I turn in my app. thanks!

We're presently one person short because of cuts by attrition. If/when that spot is filled, it'll come off this list. As far as retirements or anything, I don't know.
We run ALS engines. I actually don't remember what the time limits are on the physical test..I want to say the 1 1/2 mile run is like 13:30 maybe? We do run 24/48, no Kelly Days, FLSA pay instead.
