If they send you a letter for the run, they have a spot for you, it's yours to f-up.

    Court order says 3-2. I don't see them doing anything but what the courts say. The process is being monitored endlessly.
    Definitely agree. If you didnt hear it from Peggy then it holds no truth. And he's right about the court order, can't see them going against that. Plus the Medicals are only good for 6 months which means they'll have to redo all these guys who did it already for the January class which would've made all this a big waste if time and money which again they wouldn't allow.

    I'd be very surprised if there was no OC in this class cuz I don't think it will be a full class without them but well see in a few weeks. Guys should be getting their letters shortly.

That class will also have some PHs in it.

    Before anyone starts to assume that I am boasting about this situation, I am not. I am just providing information that was dicusssed which I thought you guys would want to know.
    Interesting to hear this again, but who is "they"? In other words, who was the source providing the info? Could be true, but it just sounds strange to me. If it came from Peggy it would be a different story. As far as hiring goes, it goes from God to Peggy to the masses.

    I assumed nearly all of those who dropped out of the academy last class would be recycled. Am I wrong for thinking this or did some guys just feel the job wasn't for them and would instead try going up the ranks in ems or become a NP or PA.

    You can become a NP or PA from ems?

    Not directly, and a lot of school is required but I think if an emt is enthusiastic about the health field, becoming an RN, NP, or PA is a route they can take. That is if they have the time and means for school. I met an emt at my hospital rotation who was going to nursing school at night. He said a lot of other people do the same. I'm sure MM and other guys who were/are on ems would have way more insight on this than me tho.

    Peggy Quinn was the one who gave us this info about us not being called until the earliest January. She stood right in front of us flesh and blood.

    This is THE MOST factual evidence you guys could have at this point. I mean she's the head of the dept and knows more than any others about where they are. They are working hard on those PH's. believe me it was a letdown considering I'm in the mid 700's and I won't be looking at the academy until the earliest July '14. I just wish we could see the ratios start to form.

    dude, if what you heard is true, and considering the source it probably is, I don't even feel safe saying January is a definite for me. I know how you feel. Sucks big time.

    Yes, her name was mentioned while discussing the PH, OC and EMS, list/July class. Also, if you guys are called off the list, they stated the 1.5 mile run will be conducted July 9, 11, 15. Then someone who works at 9 metro that was present stated it will be July, 9, 10, 11.

    Lastly, I am not sure if this is just pretaining to the PH, but an email suppose to be sent July 1 informing people of the run.

    I was really hoping for the January 14 class but now it looks like I won't get my shot until July 14 at the earliest if all this stuff is true, talk about about a kick in the teeth early in the morning.

    Yeah, this sucks hard. I was literally counting down the days till January and telling anyone who asked that's what i was expecting. Knowing I'd be waiting 6 months changing to a full year... Ugh this is rough. Month officially ruined. 7 years of this BS.

    I give you 6019 guys credit, I'm down about another 6 months of waiting, I couldn't imagine 7 years. Another 6 months at my dead end office job, I was already in waiting out the clock mode.

    Sorry guys I hate being such a letdown. I've been right along with you during this whole process and rumors have made up my life especially lately, I am so sick of rumors that cannot be corroborated that I just stopped listening. I don't post often but I wanted to let you guys know what was going on considering that I heard it with my on two ears from the one person who actually knows whats going on. almostthere, I have nothing against you, you've provided valued information to all of us but damn man those PH's really screwed us over. So many more of them passed the process than any of us could imagine and that meant a huge setback for the rest of us. It feels like eternity since I sat on Court street wondering how I did. I joined the ems side of FD, I decided that I didn't want to wait anymore and would get in one way or another. I would like someone to tell me that I didn't earn a spot because I went the promotion way and I will show them just how well I did, but decided it would be quicker going another route. Wether I get the call for oc or another promotion exam opens I don't care but this is a job worth going to hell and back for. You guys seem dedicated and I can't wait to actually meet most of you, hopefully we will all be in the front leaning rest position soon being screamed at by instructors at the rock. until then god speed and good luck. I will post any other relevant news if I hear of any.

    I totally agree with you man, this lawsuit situation has screwed a lot of you guys over. I am able to view both sides of the field, but in my honest opinion, you guys have suffered more then us PH guys. Just my opinion which I am sure the PHS would disagree with.

    Hey guys lets stop with all the "dissapointed" talk. I too am closer to the top of the list and was expecting to be hired for the July class. Does it suck? Yeah. But at the end of the day what is another 6 months? It might not be such a bad thing to not be lumped in with the PH class anyways.

    Will there be many people left over from the Ph and promotional lists after this class? If those lists are completed then its likely the January'14 class could reach the 800's on the OC.
