    Yea I called today and HR just said that my number has not been reached yet and that I am an alternate. Also I asked if I had to re do the process and she said yes but it wont be as complicated or something like that since they already have my PDQ, and she also said that I would keep my rank for the next class, I guess meaning that I would be pretty much at the front of the line rank wise with those other candidates that do not get in this class like fixxer said.

    Remember, if you are early, you are on time. If you are on time, you are LATE! Park out on the street until/unless told to do otherwise. CONGRATS.

    If anyone from out of the area needs advice on housing inside the City, feel free to PM me.

    GOOD LUCK TO YOU ALL

    one other thing.....

    For those of you on here who will be reporting to proby school.....Say your goodbyes now if you wish to do so, because effective Monday morning at 0800, per PFD internal regulations, you are no longer allowed to post on here. That being said, even if it IS a violation of your first amendment rights (which it is, but thats a matter for another time) you should not be coming on here as a proby firefighter (your first year.) Additionally, you should be devoting 100% of your off-time from the Academy to your studies.

    You ARE allowed, however....to come on here 6 months from now and invite me to your 6-month meal. JUST KIDDING. Thats for you and your crew.


    Goodbye! Good Luck. Godspeed in your career with the Philadelphia Fire Department.
