    The last I heard, Urbana might have a test in November.

    * this is just a rumor and the city has not said anything yet so take it however you may.

    For what it's worth, here's the scoop on Bloomington:
    Fire Fighter Applications Suspended

    The City of Bloomington hiring process for Fire Fighters has been suspended until a new process is developed in compliance with the changes made with Public Act 097-0251.
    (www.cityblm.org).

    Wonder what they need to bring into compliance?

    Check this out: http://www.ilga.gov/legislation/publ...F/097-0251.pdf

    I can see why they suspended the process. It appears that there are many changes that will affect departments and districts across the state.

    Default Bfd

    BFD's process was suspended because they maintained 2 lists, lateral and initial. It is my understanding that the state act now requires one list and one list only. The scuttlebutt I hear is that a new testing process should be rolled out late this year or early next
