    that makes me nervous. I never actually got my letter with my number on it. I had to pick it up from the HR at city hall. I've since changed addresses and updated via email...I also got a confirmation email that they sent out indicating they have my new address on file. But this is Chicago...so yea...

    I am number 240-260-ish and wondering if they sent out that many letters?

    Think I should make a phone call as well?

    I don't want to be a pest, but I also don't want to miss out.

    Also, congrats to those getting processed. This has been my dream since EMT-B school.

    New fire contract calls for 15 BLS ambos to go ALS. According to the tribune.

    "Sposato said the fire contract also would convert 15 basic life support ambulances to advanced life support, a change the mayor supported. The advanced ambulances are staffed by paramedics and have better medication and life-saving equipment. The city will also hire 200 new paramedics to staff the new ambulances by September, Sposato said. “I think this is a good deal for Chicagoans,” he said of the new ambulances."

    Overheard today in the afternoon they want 120-140ish medics. Someone said they are hoping for a class in the middle of august.

    Just what I heard from employees there. Doesn't mean its true.

    Anyone know how many processed two weeks ago?

    or how many in the morning and afternoon today?

    I am in the middle 200s and went in the second group they processed. I have not had any contact with an investigator. As far as I have heard no one who went in with me has started background. Maybe they got enough people from the first 200 they called? Or perhaps BI just takes a long time.

    Either way we still have PAT coming up the first week of June. That gives them something like three months to fill up a class for the hopeful August academy.

    Is anyone still going through the BI process? If so, roughly what number are you?

    I'm early 200s and haven't received anything from an investigator. I have heard from others that have a higher number being almost finished with their investigation. So it is totally up in the air when we will get a call.

    My investigator came out a few weeks ago. Pretty sure my BI is done. Also finished the physical (LOL)

    Guys with very low numbers have received offers of conditional employment based on their medicals which start next week. No confirmed class yet

    Rumor of a class of 50 for July that will be very short. 4-6 weeks possibly.

    They need 140 to staff the converted BLS ambos by September according to the contract.

    I'm thinking another larger class after the July group?

    I don't know why they don't just do one big class. Who knows.

    Everything is a rumor until you get the letter.

    Anyone else hear otherwise?
