    ...That is bittersweet news,...great for the men and women in NLV, but (potentially) bad for those of us in group one. Question: will the two new stations require 24 FF's at each station? (8 per shift),...if that is the case, I would think there would still be some room for the rest of us. Unfortunately, it seems the odds are against those of us who tested last time, and are eagerly awaiting our opportunity to get on with LVF&R. But, nothing is final 'till it's final! Stay optimistic, My Friends.

    35 firefighters at North Las Vegas will keep there jobs after all. I wonder if Vegas is still gonna go through with their lateral recruitment... I'm praying it means they will hire off the original recruit list as I know many of us are in group 1 and have anticipated an interview for over a year and a half now...

    schmanky-- I've had my fingers crossed for so long they're permanently stuck that way!

    As for the NLV folks, I hope everything works out for the best for them....still seems kinda shaky.

    ...If LVF&R decides to hire off the 2010 Group One list, I wonder if the timeframe will be the same as the lateral they were working on...

    Even with North Las Vegas "saving" jobs for now, Las Vegas Fire and Rescue will still probably get the numbers they are looking for to continue the lateral hire. How would you feel if you received a pink slip, and last minute found out your job is safe for a few more months? What if this was your second time receiving a pink slip? I think I would take an opportunity with a neighboring fire dept that is building new stations and hiring. Also there is some Northern Nevada firefighters that may apply due to job loss.

    Clark County also is doing a lateral application. So just stay positive. You never know what will happen until it actually does. Things seem to change month to month..

    That was for the lateral. I have not heard anything about the entry level yet.

    Conditional offers went out today. One of my buddies got one so it looks like they hired laterals from all over the state. I just hope they pick up some of us off the new recruit list before it expires... Congrats to all those who got offers though! LVFR is by far where I eventually want to end up.

    So far 14 NLVFD guys plus some from Reno FD and 1 from Boulder City Fire have received conditional offers. I don't know if they have called every one already or not.

    heard some possibly good news, that is NOT set in stone. Just keeping hope alive, and stay prepared in case an opportunity opens.

    I talked to my buddy who is in the lateral academy and he said that he has heard different things. Some have told him, they want to hire more off the lateral or new recruit list and others have told him they're not going to hire anymore for a while...

    Crossing my fingers! Let's all hope for the best, as I assume you all are in group 1 like myself. In the mean time continue testing. Their are a lot of other great departments out there. Don't want to miss out on an opportunity elsewhere. LVF&R would be awesome to work for though.

    shmanky808, your referring to the lateral academy that just graduated right?

    tactics, thanks for keeping us updated. It's very appreciative.

    Default Anything New For LVF&R?

    As time is closing in on the 24-month mark since I tested with LVF&R (January, 2010), have been wondering for months what is next? I'm aware of the lateral hires in October 2011, but nothing has been said in this forum regarding those of us in Group 1 who tested two years ago. I understand most test lists are good for only 24 months, but thought I read something about LVF&R extending the period to 30 months....

    If I have to re-test, so be it. Just curious if any of you have heard anything regarding LVF&R hiring in 2012....I can only imagine they are in need of more FF's.

    Thanks in advance for any new info. Happy and Safe Holidays to All!!

    Here is some info that I came across in regards to the the firefighter trainee list. From the looks of it, the list could possibly be extended to December of this year. According to HR, I was told that the extension to June has been approved. Let's keep the faith!

    I wonder if the NLV guys will be going back now. Sucks to leave due to layoff's only to have the department rehire quickly.
