    The FDNY is similar to the USMC, they are only looking for a few good members. Usually if you miss out on the first exam and not get hired, there usually isn't a sceond chance as the next time you may be able to sit for the exam you may be over the upper age limit for age at time of hire.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    Is it just me, or was the packet a bit confusing? When it kept saying "qualified candidates". It says "qualified candidates" will receive a web link to register for the test. Did anyone else receive a web link? I haven't yet...

    Miss Boone is your best option. If you want to speak to the Academy Coordinator, Captain Fred Noble is your man.

    Well considering the size of Raleigh and the likely number of candidates, I thought maybe I would come to the forum to see if this was a common thing, and possibly a brain flatulent on my end before I called and annoyed anyone in an office who may likely be answering this same question 20-30 times daily.

    I don't see how asking if I was the only one a bit confused has anything to do with having things handed to me? Let's try to keep the comments in this forum a bit more on the productive side...

    Yeah, I received all mine as well. They must have not accepted everyone who tested. Some folks I talked to today who I tested in Wilmington with said that they never got anything back at all from RFD.

    Some get the green light, some don't. Have no idea what the weed-out process is....

    For those that inquired....we provide EMT level services as a first responder agency. If you have your Medic, you can still only serve as an EMT with RFD, doesn't matter if you are a Doctor. You can, however, apply part time with Wake EMS (or a surrounding county agency) to maintain your cert. If you make it through, you'll run plenty of medicals, don't you worry!

    C'mon guys, do some homework!! Google it, Google it, Google it!!!!

    Benny, people handle business differently. I'd rather make a call and get an answer, then sit back and wonder where my app is and then BOOM!!! The process is closed/moving on....
