    ALCO usually doesn't give a written. But since they received 1,600 apps they are this time. In the past ALCO has hired from their reserves and medics.

    They will also be interviewing for reserves in the near future.

    From Deputy Chief Ops./HR: 1800 Apps. 760 made it through to the test. Hiring 9-15 FFs. 50 Reserves. I'm thinking Captain Bob is right. Hiring will come from reserves.

    If hiring will come from reserves, why do they put on a test at all? Just wondering.

    Have an oral on the 8th.
    If anyone from Southern California wants to car pool up there let me know.
    I'll probably leave early on the 8th and come back straight after my oral, which is at 4, so I can make it to work on time on the 9th....
    Good luck to everyone testing up there.

    My letter came in the mail yesterday.
    Have an oral on the 8th at 4pm.
    If anyone from Southern California wants to ride up, let me know. I have a car. Just split gas (40 bucks give or take). I am going to leave early on the 8th and come back right after my interview in order to be at work on time the next morning.

    Anyone know anything about the EMS Assessment and what it entails? Anyone ever done one as part of a hiring process?

    Default Accepted to take EMS 1/5 and Oral with Chief 1/10!!!

    I barely made the cut with a 93% on the panel oral... For some reason I didn't feel like I did as well as I could have but at least Im moving forward. Not sure where I rank on "The List" but there are still many miles left to go on this journey and I will continue to do my best. Does anyone have any information about "The List" and where everyone ranked? I've heard that 54 are moving forward and I remember from orientation that they will be taking 24 to the academy. This department is a career department for sure and an awesome opportunity, Good Luck to everyone!

    Parkerway, are you a emt or medic? Do you know anything about how an ems assessment is done? Congrats on moving on! I dont know anything about how "the list" works. And do you know if the location of the assessment and oral is at the same place we had the other interview?? Congrats again.

    I just got a letter in the mail today stating the time and location of my Chief's Interview. Also, the letter states that "The EMT/Paramedic Assessment is a benchmark tool and is not used to determine your overall placement for hiring." I'm not sure how to take that statement, but will show up prepared. I've only had 1 paramedic assessment, but that was prior to completing ACLS. Good luck, I'll let you know if I pass the Chief's Interview!

    Did anyone hear anything about the hiring process? I know HR said we would know by the end of the week but I also know they let the ones that passed know sooner. Thats how its been so far at least...

    Default phone call vs. letter

    No one is there today as it is MLK day. I imagine they're doing phone calls to the ones that get it and letters to the ones that don't.
