    When the PAT dates were first posted in march I called my buddy who works on the Beach, he told me that from what he was hearing, they were switching to a written test. He wasn't positive but thats what he was hearing.

    Any " news" yet? Heard they are finishing up promotions, but who knows. It seems a pretty long wait to start a process when they announced it in Febuary.

    A good friend of mine says that the Beach is definitely hiring 12 and trying to get the approval to hire 14. He very good friends with a chief at the beach but I'm not sure which one.

    Reliable sources say 15-17 to be hired for first class (never know class size till start date.) Word is process to start Sept-Oct with first class starting early 2015. BAP unlikely. Likely to have written tests and interviews. Rumors of a contracted testing company doing the process with MBFD. Many retirements coming up.

    Miami beach just posted position for Dispatcher trainee job. May want to consider that job while waiting for a fire gig and it will count towards seniority.

    Oh wow I guess I wasn't far off guessing it was for 2015 haha... That Dispatcher job looks like it is for Police? Any idea if dispatchers do both fire and Police or just stick to one side?

    So now that we know it is a written test, anyone have an idea on how the written was before? Fire/EMS textbook stuff?

    I don't know if it will have EMS on it because the only requirements to apply were to be fire certified and the PAT on the specific days they outlined. I'm taking a wild guess but I'm thinking it will a civil service test like the county does. That is just a guess though.

    I agree... Unlikely EMS stuff since not required to have EMT. If anything, review IFSTA since fire cert is required.

    Fire minimum standards or civil service, sounds good.
