    The link below is for the 2012 FW budget. Page 27 talks about 32 positions due to attrition in 2012 and page 28 another 14 + 12 do to Spinks new st. 42 and attrition/promotion in 2013. The index list some other fire department items as well but for those testing these numbers seemed most relevant.

    Does anyone know when we can expect to hear something about the mandatory orientation?

    Not sure. Isn't it the same day as the 1.5 mile run or something?

    No, those are on different dates according to the recruitment packet.

    1. Orientation/Practice physical exam
    2. Run
    3. Physical exam/Background orientation

    I was curious when we could expect to have the orientation. I hope its soon. I am very eager to get this going ASAP!

    I misinformed on my last post. It was the PAT that they should get to around January. Not the interviews. Sorry.

    Hey guys, I'm pretty upset at my score. I got an 81, and I felt very confident after taking the test. What study materials did you guys use to get those 100's? Please help...

    Well if that is the case, that stinks since that is one of the first steps. I was hoping this would get moving a bit quicker. I guess we'll have to wait and see! Plenty of time to get in the best shape possible though

    I have always used Don Mcnea's books from fireprep.com. They will help a lot, and I think he guarantees it.

    I could see waiting until after the Holidays to get stuff going but I also thought the class was going to start in February no way that happens if the physical isn't till January.

    All of this is tentative, but it's from a credible source.

    PAT within the next few months.
    Interviews around December-January
    First class looking to hire around March
    At the time they're talking about 2 classes of about 18 each. Previous rumor was 3-4 classes but that has since been discredited.

    I was hoping that the word would be a hire date of February, but I can wait a little bit longer. I'm ready to move on and get my dream job! I too had heard the rumor of 3 classes, I was hoping that was true!

    This post has been active since the first post was placed. You can read the date on the first page of the thread.

    I updated it the day before you posted the above "suggestion."

    Academy: It's in-house. 6-7 months. EMS first, then fire. PM me if you have more questions.
