So has anyone heard of any hiring at all, just for one for one? I thought the goal was 3-4 immediate hires, then a larger group depending on the SAFER. Anybody heard any new scuttlebutt?
No SAFER grant yet...
FYI, we were awarded the SAFER grant, 24 positions should be following soon.
where will they be pulling these 6 uncertified vets from?
yeah I couldn't agree more
Anybody get, or know of anyone who got a phone call this past week? Any news?
Where did you hear that OFD has already contacted the 24?
So FireFuss you say "The group of us"... Does that mean you were called to start on Feb. 11? Trying to get a definite yes or no from someone who was actaully called to start on Feb 11. I know thats the rumor, but Im sceptical until I hear of a person that is definitely starting that date.
I understand that's been the rumor of the original start date for the next class. Just trying to confirm if anyone on this message board has indeed got a call from OFD with a conditional offer. It seems that everyone is talking about Feb. 11 being the start date but no one(that I have heard of) has been contacted. If anyone on here has been contacted and offered a job starting on Feb. 11 please respond so those of us who are still in limbo can temporarily put our minds at ease and stop grabbing our phones everytime someone calls.
Thanks. Like I said, just looking for definitive clarification. Good Luck man.
A new class of more than 15 will begin their orientation (on February 11th). As soon as that group completes their orientation period, we will hire the remaining personnel to get us up to our full staffing of 521 and then resume hiring one-for-one over the next 2 years of the grant period.
Direct from the Chief.
The 2nd group has been contacted, congrats to everyone that has made it so far.
For the group of 15 that just got hired Congrats!! I interviewed a few weeks ago and had my first poly, I hope my day is coming soon for that phone call. Can anyone tell me did they hire all medics for the big group starting Feb 11th??? Or are they still hiring EMT's as well???
That is true.
