    yup, 3 indeed. they're on top of it up in Portland.

    Curious as to what the written will be like since they're supposedly steering away from that terrible (my opinion) fireteam test. any insight?

    Thanks,
    Previously stated, they're taking application starting from 6/20. I believe you apply at their website.

    they have the applications capped @ 4000 i believe. 2500 for "trainee" and 1500 for "emt/paramedics", meaning you have experience. make sure you set an alarm on your phone or computer as you don't want to miss out because the cap is reached early. i think last year it was filled after 3 days or so.

    Read the email again, it's set to 4,500 applications.

    thanks for pointing that out...

    4500 it is i guess. either way, the main idea of my last post was to make sure you apply as soon as it opens up so you don't miss the cut off. it filled fairly quickly last year.

    A little info on our process this year in this thread. http://www.firehouse.com/forums/showthread.php?t=119430 (Portland Fire & Rescue (Oregon) recruiting 2011)

    A lot of the test this time will be written in house, the part that will be over our training manual etc. Good luck to everyone testing and like has been mentioned before get in early it filled up fast last time.
