    Not on DFD but I just took my CPAT and the instructor informed us they had 120 applicants apply. He said if budget goes as planned, but if, they plan on hiring 20-25 of the list which is good for two years. Should be a good list to get on!

    We will have around 4 openings when they do the first round of hiring. 20-25 seems like a lot, it's possible, but I doubt it.

    Golzy, what are the hiring requirements at Duluth. How does Duluth operate? (First responders, BLS or ALS transport) How many people on a rig? What are the demographics of the department? What do you guys look for in a candidate and what kind of training academy does Duluth run? Any knowledge is wonderful, thank you.

    I'll try to answer most of your questions,
    Duluth has 9 stations, 9 engines, 2 trucks, 1 quint, 1 heavy rescue. A lot of the companies are staffed differently, the quint is the only rig with 4, most have 3, a few engines have 2 and the engine on park point has 1. We don't do any EMS transport, we operate at the EMT-B level and respond to all medicals in the city with Gold Cross ambulance. When you start you are put through 2 weeks of training that pretty much gets you up to speed on how things are done on the DFD. As far as what they are looking for when they hire, it's tough to say, personally I think it's important to be a hard worker and have a sincere willingness to learn. Hope that helps!
