    Make sure y'all working out prior to showing up ! Don't waste someone else chance because you can't run or do a push up !!!

    Good advice. And this has been said before, but I will say it again:

    1. If you are currently a Volly somewhere, and are on the short list, STOP RESPONDING. NOW. TURN OFF YOUR PAGER. Better yet, take a leave of absence or better yet just resign altogether. You don't want to risk getting hurt at a Volly fire onto to have the PFD send you that letter telling you to report to Pennypack on Monday morning- they wont like it too much if you show up with your arm in a cast.

    2. If you are currently a Volly somewhere, and you do make it and get in, FORGET EVERYTHING YOYOU KNOW. You need to suddenly become an Academy-Award winning actor/actress and play like you've never seen a nozzle, hose, hook, oxygen bottle or firetruck before.....Ever.

    Will the letters for both classes go out the same day?

    More than likely letters will go out on the same day & the other letters saying you didn't make the class... I'm waiting patiently now.

    There are no letters if you don't make it in a class. If you don't make it, you simply receive no letter at all.

    Correct, coming from another guy that missed it last time....

    If you aren't contacted, you weren't a lottery pick

    Last time my status went from "in hiring process" back to "eligible for hire" a week before the class started. That is about all they tell you

    I wonder if letters were given out to those of you that had their medicals cancelled. A few of us here went through the entire process last time and didn't get that letter.

    Any guesses how far down the list they'll end up? I'm thinking the physical and time itself knocked many people out of the process? I know they interviewed up to about #500.

    Last year I was #197 on the list. I made it to the medicals and didn't make weight. I made weight this year and as far as I know, I am eligible for hire. Can I assume that I am still #197??? Thanks.
