    EMT with 2 years ambulance experience and 1 year hospital experience. That "P" goes along way in this state.

    How do you check?

    My status says "Review by Department" so I guess that means I'm moving through as HR has cleared my app and given it to the FD. I am a Medic so I'm assuming that's why I got through and others may not have.

    I'm an EMT with no experience and mine says "Status: Review by Department". I dunno why they let mine through when they're denying medics and those with experience? It's anyones guess when you're dealing with HR...

    Keep an eye on Polk County. They still hire Fire/EMT. Just have to start out as "part time" and interview for full time when it comes available.
    ...at this time.

    Yep. And I am back in. I used to submit EVERY since piece of paper I got for a certification. I will now resume that, since I was DQ'd for that. Thankfully it got squared away.

    I got the same email almost word for word. I'll get all my info submitted asap. The only thing I don't have is the EVOC cert, I have a class scheduled for early next month. Hopefully they can work with that

    FireFuss, did your status on the Osceola web kiosk change after you received a response from them?

    Received a response back with just "Thank you" but on the site it still shows it as "not selected". Guess I'll give it a day.
