    Under armour. Under armour. and more under armour. Theyve gotten too big so some of their stuff isnt as good as it used to be....but their cold gear **** works. You should be able to find out beforehand (or during the first day or two) whether mock turtleneck cold gear is allowed (and what color), leggings for the really really cold days, extra socks and t shirts.

    Hope everyone had a great Christmas. Hopefully by this time next year, at the latest, I'll be getting ready for 1.5 mile run and heading into the academy finally after this long, ridiculous journey. Best of luck to everyone gearing up to head in in the next few weeks.

    There is a rumor floating around that the start date is being pushed back. This came through a Battalion commander and may not be sound, but the rumor is out there. The talk is a March start.

    This could be completely false, but it is out there.

    did your source have a reason for pushing the class back?

    I heard the same rumor from a family member last night. Planned promos supposedly pushed back too. Wondering what the reasoning could be.

    I dont see why they would be pushing the class back if they sent out enough letters for the run to fill the first class, pushing the class back would not make any diffrence in who gets in or not unless 100 guys bomb the run which I highly doubt and if this is the case you go back to BHS to complete medical part B. My investagator saud to me he doesnt see anything stopping this Jan 14 class.

    They have 320 and did not even call the entire ems list. Even if people bomb the run they still have more to call. I dont see any reason for pushing the class back. The run is historically 2-3 weeks before the academy starts. Promotions for lt captain ect are 1/2/13 there was a rumor they were postponed but it is being dismissed as nonsense on fires rant board. Investigators are still saying Jan 14 for PFS.

    Well, good. Like an said, It was a rumor. FYI, the run and other fitness tests have historically been done on one of the first days of the academy. If they start doing it prior to the start date, that is something new.

    What did this letter say about grooming and uniform standards?

    For the class they cancelled in 09, we had a scheduled start date of Jan 5, 2009 and we ran the first(and last) mile and a half run December 7, 08. Almost a full month before.

    Latest department order was posted today and it lists the dates which the quartermaster will be closed due to the upcoming class of probationary firefighters.

    Seems like those rumors were exactly that, just rumors.

    Hello everyone. I've been following this forum for some time. I just wanted to know my chances of getting in any time soon? That way I don't have to put my hopes up high for next year or maybe the year after?

    anyone has the contact info for the military liaison? i just want to speak to someone about what to expect if they send me a packet and i have to miss any part of the hiring process (CPAT classes, Meet up with investigator, etc) due to me being active duty until June.

    I have a list number of X < 150 and Im really scared to have to defer cause I get out of the Army in June 2013.

    Well, that's not an unhire-able number, but if they reach you, it'll be sometime in late 2015 or 2016.



    On a separate note, someone mentioned an explanation of grooming standards in the letter. I'd like to know how that read, can someone please enlighten me.
