    I was looking for the Dallas Fire Dept. shift calender and some how it came up. (Don't google Firefighter Calender! LOL!) It's a bunch of Buff Guys that will make you look bad!

    FireFighterCanididate1 FYI, Dallas Firefighters ONLY like the Dallas Cowboys!!! Lol!

    Did they tell anybody about when to expect a call for the medical and fingerprint test? I was too surprised by the other call to ask.

    Dallas doesn't do a psych test to whoever was asking about that earlier.

    PT Starts at 6:30 and you'll be expected to show up an hour early. So 0530-1630ish.

    Congrat's to everyone who got calls recently. I plan on testing this next time around. I have a question though. I work in wildfire at a very remote base in NM and once the season starts we get very busy and it's really hard to get away. If I advanced past the test would the Dept. view my situation as a deployment and be understanding of my unavailability? Or would I be removed from the process? Thanks.

    Hey Jack, unfortunately you would most likely be removed from the process. The recruitment for Dallas has multiple deadlines that must be met in order to advance. I just started my academy with DFR a few months ago and was also working as a wildland firefighter in Reno, NV during their last recruitment. I had to quit my department of three years just to meet all of the deadlines for this last go-around. It was a risk I was willing to take and fortunately it paid off. Good luck to you and have a safe fire season!

    According to the countdown on my phone we have 58 Days, 18 hours, and 38 minutes until we start.

    In case anybody was wondering.

    Can't wait!

    On another note, still need a roommate or a place to stay. I know a few guys are staying at the Reserve, looking for someone to split the bills with. If anyone knows anyone in this class or FD or completely separate from FD I will be interested. Please PM me!

    Hi. I head that another test will be opening up soon. What does the process consist of and how long did it take you guys? Im from california, just took an EMT job to qualify for medic school, and took a pay cut to get it done, so Im on a budget lol. Thanks in advance

    Did anybody else get a call from Dallas requesting more college transcripts and a high school transcript? Plus shot records.

    I'm kinda confused because I already sent all of it way earlier in the process.

    I haven't heard anything since they called a couple of weeks ago. Kind of weird that they would ask you for those items now. On the bright side, at least they are asking you for them instead of not saying anything at all and it jeopordize your position. I hope you took them that stuff already.

    Has anyone from the first 2 classes moved from a far distance? How do you like Dallas? Best place to live? I am assuming close to Academy and any other interesting things?

    Also I'm prepping for academy, any insight on fitness? I am running, push ups sit ups; have any numbers on basic requirements?

    Thanks guys, hope to see/meet you all soon!
