    Default Allentown Fire

    Anybody have info on Allentown PA? From their IAFF website they seem to run a good amount and they are a tight group. Talked to the chief a couple of weeks ago but don't know much else about them or the status of the city. Any info is appreciated.

    I think they hired sometime in 07' or 08' and on the citys site it says that they're currently not accepting applications at the moment. One of the assistant chiefs is a member at my hunting club and he's a good guy. From what I've heard they seem like a great dept.

    They just hired within the last 6-8 months. Due to the economics of the City, I wouldn't look for them to hire anytime soon. In fact I would be surprised if they didn't try to disband companies or lower minimum manning.

    Actually got a conditional offer from them that's why I am asking. 6 guys retired so they are putting through a class of 6 February 9th. I heard early last year that Allentown was filing as a distressed city and that somewhat worries me about the job.

    Tested back in 2009. They are talking about testing again this year so this hiring will be the last off this list before it is replaced.
