    Default Recieved email

    Received email for continuing on in the lateral process. Curious to see how many are moving on? Time to brush-up on EMS skills.

    Did anyone else get an email to do an update survey for Sac? I didn't test for them this past summer, so I'm assuming it was for the test awhile back. Anyone know their hiring situation? Thanks, all.

    I got the same email. I have to assume this would relate to the test back in 2010 I think it was?? Anyway, no idea how many they're hiring. Everything I've heard lately out of there is that they're trying to avoid laying off. Apparently I've heard wrong though since they are starting another process.

    I took the test. It sounded like only 28 of 150 passed with 15 more to finish mondays go around. Then another 50 paramedics were testing tuesday.
    Anyone have any information on the results from tuesday?
    Interviews are the week of Dec. 10.

    I got my interview date for the 11th. Did you pass, Lauby?

    And 2 hours for the interview process? I wonder if the time alottment has something to do with the background.

    that email stated that we had to check in with the police department. I wonder if it is a interview with a BI. Also, they want to fit everyone for PPE? This is a first, but it should be interesting.

    Lauby, you may be right about the BI. Shoot me a PM if you can. I tried to shoot one to you.

    You guys know when the academy starts yet? I got an email today for EMS testing in Feb. for a summer academy. Just wondering if you're starting in the next month or so.

    I just got an email yesterday for an EMS test, too. Does anyone have any idea as to what I should study? Should I focus on National Registry, local protocols, or anything else?

    I have another question someone may be able to answer. For the EMS written/skills testing, what is the dress code? I've never had this hoop without an interview immediately after, so I'm not sure if it's a suit and tie or business casual dress? If anyone knows, I'd appreciate the help. Thanks!

    Always dress for success. I would say business casual would be your best bet.

    So are you guys slated to start in the summer also? Or is your academy starting sooner? Just curious as to the timeline from this point on.

    Since you recently went through this. It's a EMS written and then skills and if you pass an interview and then on to the backgrounds? And how long was it from the EMS portion to you just starting the polygraphs? And is that the last part of the background? Appreciate the insight.
