    No fee, we don't tax and fee you to death down here : P (I'm a Yankee and know the deal with the testing fees).

    Read the packet guys, and read it again. What I did when I applied for gigs; get a piece of paper and scan thru the app packet. When I see something that's required, I write it down on the paper. Simple, but it works and removes all the jargon on the application.

    I just looked at it again it doesn't look like anything needs to be attached. Just have the 5 refs, the 10 years of residence hx and you should be ok. Just dont FAX or EMAIL your app

    Not my job to air the dirty laundry of RPD, just know that morale is much higher at the F.D. If it wasn't for the better pension, more would come over to the F.D., belee' 'dat!!!

    Talking

    One could have easily found that out on their own by simply checking out the city's website and "looking around" on their own!

    "One" probably could have done that, if I had wanted to do that, But I was asking RFDGloWorm that question.

    Hey brother, I applied a couple of weeks ago. I received a package in the mail with information about the test and what to expect. I also talked with HR and they did say the academy would be in April next year and possibly hiring 35 but you know how that goes.
