    Just got off the phone with Ms. Patty from HR, she said end of July at best now. It is taking 7-10 days longer to get physical results back then they were expecting. She said she will have a better idea of the start date by end of next week. I'll call back then and post what I hear.

    I think it might have been Emergency Care 11 or 12 edition, can't go wrong with reading either of them, it's all the same stuff.

    I weighed in on Friday (6/14) and the doctor said there were a lot of fire applicants that day. The date I heard being thrown around was the week of July 22nd. If they are still doing medicals, I assume at least another month.

    Hi all,

    Anyone know if some people failed the physical? I didn't find it hard, but wondered why you're experiences were.

    I can't wait to start. I've been running a lot. It would be nice to have a start date to focus on. I know it's a lot of work for HR though. I found everyone nice so far.

    Good luck everyone.

    Believe me, I don't want anyone to fail. Just wanted to know what the vibe was out there.

    What takes the background so long, the criminal part or the driving part?
