    No clue... I would think a good 30-50.. They have a over 50 from what I hear that are eligible for retirement, including a few Bat. Chiefs.

    I applied the other day. I just got done with EMT school, but did not graduate I made a 71 on final, and needed a 75. Doesn't Gwinnett put all recruits through EMT-I?

    You have one year from date of hire to obtain NPQ FFII, Hazmat Ops and EMT-I. All should be offered in rookie school.

    COMPASS/ASSET tests can be done at any technical school in the state. It is basic knowlege and something you should do just fine with.

    Gwinnett hires people with no certs just like anyone else. I am sure you won't be the only one applying who isn't already certified.

    Which stations have freightliners still? They just use them for reserve. Every station should have a KME considering they have E31 that doesn't even belong to a station.

    So in Phase 1 it is listed as "submission of application", "entry level testing" (with a study guide)!!, then background and oral.

    You mean there is no "entry level testing with a study guide, even though that's what the process states???
