    Good morning, I had a question about something I'm confused about. If I rank 5,33* and they call me to take the physical exam and I pass as well as the other tests, and July 2017 comes do I have to start all over or I'm still going to be in the system waiting for the academy for exam #2000. Thank you.

    Please note that we are not permitted to call candidates from an exam list after it expires, meaning candidates whose list number has not been reached. If your list number is reached before the exam expiration date, you're still eligible for hire. Also, please note that Exam 2000 expires in June 2017.

    Ok, once I begin the process Im going to be fine then. Even if June 2017 comes and I'm not in the academy yet? Thanks for responding I just wanted to clear that up.

    Yes, the expiration date applies to candidates whose list number has not been called.

    Thank you for the information I appreciate it.

    The rest of the message I didn't read because Im an idiot lol….But it does seem like If you just start the process you will still be eligible. Correct me if I am wrong. And either way ppl will have a long wait

    if you promote often you get group f candidates who have already been background screened and are vetted by the agency to a certain extent. also they have experience answering calls, interacting with FF and officers. the applicant pool is diverse - the perception may be that its more diverse than the OC pool.

    but the big thing, i think, is it makes the ems/medic job more attractive.

    He says they are waiting for funding... This is all rumors but I've been hearing promo in jan/feb for a while. Also there is a ton of emts still coming out so maybe they're getting enough emts before everyone leaves again

Nothing is worse than stepping into a wet boot at roll call in 15 degree weather. Some guys bought a pair of waterproof socks, they're like 40 bucks and I'm not sure how good they worked. A buddy of mine had hand warmers which were great at roll call and when you're done with an evolution and waiting around, just can't get caught with them. The blue gloves we use are excellent for fire but do nothing against the cold. Always buy extra black gloves, if 1 guy doesn't have them none of you wear them. Other than that just layer, but remember you will be changing frequently and with little space and time so don't wear too many layers. Good luck I hope it won't be as cold as our class
    Are they specific with the black gloves like they are with the bag aka no writing anywhere on them? Also for the UA, I assume everything should be bought in black?

    Thinking in getting one of these maybe the sealskinz one since it helps with the cold more than the rest. http://hiconsumption.com/2014/09/best-waterproof-socks/

    It use to be every 2 years. It will be closer to 3 years by the time this promo test is given if it actually happens.

    Don't get any gloves with a crazy design but any black gloves will do. As long as everyone has them you can wear them. It won't matter what color because it won't be seen while you're in bunker gear and won't be seen under your pt sweats but use common sense, black or grey. Don't come in with pink under Armour

    I had the sealskinz waterproofsocks but they were too big so I didn't wear them much. But that's the brand most guys had. I preferred knee high socks so I didn't want to keep switching between classes, but for some guys they worked

    wait till monday. then call them. when i saw other people getting their packets I called. the first woman confirmed that some people were sent packets out of order - perhaps medicals will start going out very soon too.
    long story, i called and they confirmed that I was supposed to get a packet. just be persistent and they will tell you your intake date and resend the packet if it got lost. it happens, my first packet got lost.

    Hey guys, I work at REI-Sales Specialist (DISCLAIMER: i don't represent them in any way online). Although these are waterproof socks, question is, are they necessary in certain stages when you guys aren't going through water? And how often will your feet be submerged in water? If not very often, I'd recommend smart wool or icebreaker merino socks since they're more breathable, wicking, and cushion in specified socks.
