    Craig, i think your right about the random number thing. I seem to remember that being the case. Also I remember regular non-residents being below 800. Did you get a letter this time around?

    Yeah it sounds like the higher ranked people go first, followed by everyone else. I think orientation was 3 nights last time, there may be 4 nights this go around

    That would make sense...but with this city, you can't count on that to happen.

    Check out the Fox Chase area, it's safe, not too congested and has a sweet trout stream

    Is the "Criminal History or Disciplinary Action Reporting Form for Certification of Recognition" that we have to bring with us to orientation the same thing as the paper titled "Philadelphia Regional Emergency Medical Services Firefighter Class Interviews"? Otherwise, I didn't recieve this form with my orientation letter.

    Great, thanks deadbear. I ended up google searching the form and printing it out just to be safe. I was just confused because the other forms they listed were accurately titled word for word.
