    From what I know there aren't really many left at all. There was actually quite a big handful that failed CPAT ( I don't know how cause its so easy!!! ) and got cut because of age etc. the people up for promotion in january havent taken medicals yet so thats another obstacle. if I was to throw a number ill say 30 for January at the very MOST. So close to 300 spots left for PH and OC.

    But then again this is assuming that EVERYONE from EmS and OC graduated since PH can't recycle to next class. So what every recycles are left subtract from those 300. At this point you would hope that EVERYOnE graduates haha

    I'm curious what the ratio is for people who quit and then recycle.

    Not all, but most. The answer is most.

    Recycle is said with such a negative connotation here. People often don't quit and recycle, they get hurt and miss more days than they are allowed to, and that's it, it's over till the next class.

    Odd question. What happens if someone is forced to quit in the above stated scenario say because of a bad sprain or something. They are maybe two months in with two to go and fully intend on coming back for the next class when they heal up and start over. Do they stay on the city's payroll while they wait or would they need to find a new job till the start the next academy?

    I feel like if people are taken off the payroll while they wait to recycle then we all should be pretty careful how you quit your current job even though everyone says you wont be able to give 2 weeks notice. Again weird question, its just a slow news week and I'm sure this happens to people every class.

    I have no idea. It was different for everyone in the last class because we were all EMS, so they may have gone back to their previous title (EMT/medic), but to be honest I really don't know.

    stuff like this can/will be addressed throughout the mentorship program. Definitely take advantage of this offer they are extending to us.

    Speaking of which, are the mentors notified of news and info by the department or do they just go off what they know from experience? I have a couple of friends OTJ who don't really know much about this new process we're all dealing with here.

    I don't believe they have "inside info" other than they hear things OTJ like any other FF. But they definitely are more knowledgeable about our process than a lot of other guys who have 10+ years. We are also their first run through the program too so when they reach out to more people as they move along the list the mentors will have some experience under their belt which can only help.

    good info...do you think you'll be able to find out how many PHs made it in? Would be nice to see what the OC hiring ratio looked like, even with a small sample size.

    Is it pathetic that even if I don't have a good shot at the winter class I'm still going to lose my ^%$# and be euphoric just to get the investigation packet in a month or 2?

    Na I feel the same way. I just want a piece of mail from the Dept getting this process going. Not to sound like a jealous *******, but it literally drives me nuts coming on here and just rehashing past experiences.

    This is the best post i have seen in a long time. Stop being so negative go train and wait for your time to come. There's no pint in worrying about who's failing the run or quitting or being recycled.

    Nah, the last rumor was the next bunch of packets would go out some time in August, so I've been counting down the days till August since late April/early May lol.

    Anything is possible but I'm pretty confident numbers from 1000-2000 have a good chance at July 14'

    Thanks for all the information. So with the 177 promos that brings us to 316 with offers? Looks like that's about it for this class unless they run another 5-6 people this week, that's gotta be a weird run.

    Side note, it took them over 80 list numbers to get 17 guys from the OC list? I wonder if that ratio is a sign of what it will continue as. That's about a 5:1 ratio for the very top of the list. Crazy!
