    that is true we call it a ceiling hooks but mostly just "hooks" i looked over the guide and yes there is alot of things you will need to forget but i wouldn't worry to much if you get in they will drill the termanology into your heads that is of coures after the medics bust your balls or ovaries (got to be policticaly correct lol) for the first half of the academy haha. good luck ppl just hit the books and hope for the best

    Hey Bro, they won't get pass the written let alone be hired.

    If you can't read something as simple as the application and the infomation given, you will not pass the written, even if you do, you will not make it through the Academy!

    That is the FIRST step in getting hired!!
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    "This examination will be tentatively scheduled for the week of November 14, 2011. Please note that this examination date is subject to change."

    now the only other date i see on the application for that week would be the 19th which is the last day to submit documents. I see nothing on there about an exact date to test. If i'm missing something please let me know

    The following is on the fire department website

    The Firefighter examination is currently scheduled for Saturday, November 19, 2011. Only those who apply on-line between June 27 and August 5 and who meet the minimum requirements will be permitted to sit for the examination.

    Here is my dilemma: I have Bridgeport FD's test on 11/19 as well. So far only about 300-400 applicants have applied for that test. I paid the filing fee which was ridiculously high.

    Also Philly's test is scheduled for 11/19. I am receiving the extra points for EMT-B in PA.

    Which test would you take?

    That was for the benefit of FFemt1991 and anybody else who was not sure of the date or where it came from, although some of the people should be left to sink or swim for not paying attention.

    that depends on what your looking for in your career and also 300-400 applicants is a hell of alot lower but how many are they taking?

    Does anyone know if the city offers points for degree programs? The application doesn't mention it, so I imagine not; however, my wife (who is PPD) believes there is and it is mentioned in the study guide (Chpt. 1 pg. 16 para. 1 line 6-7). I would imagine that points of that nature would be restricted to promotional exams but I am curious if you can apply a science degree to get on the job. Thanks.

    Well that's what I'm unsure of. The budget states that they are between 60-70 short of adequate manning. Also according to a member on this forum, about 100 guys are coming up on there 25 year mark which would mean at least some retirees.

    I mean I already paid the $135.00 filing fee...so right now I'm pretty ****ed off. I was hoping to test for both departments this time around to at least get some more tests under my belt for practice.

    I wasn't expecting them both to be on the same day, and its not like I can take one and than shoot on over and hit the next one. So I'm pretty much f-ed.

    Anymore insight?
