    As long as you signed up for the test before your 29th and half year you should be good for as long as the list is still alive.

    That would be awesome, but where'd you hear that from? because the letter from the commissioner said it would be 2 classes of 300 per year.

    This is my question, 2400ff that covers the avg ret 40-50 a month. Now with 200millon in overtime being paid wouldn't fdny hire more then that so they don't have to pay that much OT?

    It's much cheaper to pay out the OT then hire new guys.

    Highly doubt it. I have no clue how the rock is set up but if they had room to put in more i'm sure they'd just have bigger classes. Plus, you'd need double the instructors.

    They will not canvas from the OC for January. They have to offer you the 12 week CPAT course, and it's too late to start that now.

    Also there are a ton of new guys that are just going to be waiting for their 2 years to be eligible, so there may be a steady/slow trickle of EMS people for the next few years, but I imagine the impact will be minimal. I had not heard all of the specifics that have been said over the last page, but it wouldn't surprise me if they exhausted the list just to get 300.

    there is no way they will do that...they don't have the room down there for that many people number 1 and number two if you look on the fd main web site they state they want to hire two classes of 300 a year for for years which equals 2400 firefighters.

    You're clueless.

    On the topic of starting another academy while one is in already shows you're even more clueless. It's been done before multiple times. Especially with classes less than 300 which it sounds like the January EMT class might be.

    Yeah this two classes at once deal sounds doable for the january class with so little EMS dudes passing the pre academy requirements. Academy in March? Im going to bloom with the flowers haha
