    They are down forty firefighters.

    Instead of a written they have used Fireteam on their last tests.

    Keep in mind that there will still be an oral.

    Thanks, Capt.

    But what do you mean they use Fireteam instead of written tests? Says they're having fire tests in January 2011. Thanks!

    Many agencies are using the FireTeam Testing video as the first step instead of a traditional straight written.

    Oral boards are underway to hire lateral firefighters to fill the 40+ vacancies and the 10+ leaving next March.

    No written test was given. Just going straight to the orals for laterals.

    Life is timing!

    Called HR, and she said that the fire/medic testing is the same as lateral. Then she said they had 3000 apps, and unsure of any further testing.

    Update: They are doing interviews, but it is from the state layoff list. Out of staters are not considered at this point.

    Hey I'm a laid off firefighter, so I am very impressed Cal has a list for laid off guys. But sadly, that is what they told me.

    I got an email saying I would get further information ten days before the written test... Did anyone else get a similar email?
