    JK dont pay attention to smart ****s. They look down on everybody even tho they probies themselves.
    A lot of firefighters are humble, nice people, willing to help. But i hate those "firefighters" or "wannabes" that think they're above everybody, and ready to spit at anybody when they have a chance. I sometimes wonder how those people got on, lottery?

    Anyway Good luck to you bro

    I would try north. Thornton, northglenn, henderson,reunion maybe even brighton. It shouldn't take you more than 20 mins to get to the grounds. Brighton tho might take a lil longer, but I bet that would be one of the cheapest places. If you go Aurora , you most likely gonna hit traffic all the time.

    Haha. Same to you, buddy. I have no ill-will toward anyone regardless. Always glad to learn something new.

    Hoping we hear something about interviews this week. Seems like we would have to start wrapping things up soon.

    Yeah, good call. Springs starts Feb. 19. That's why I'm hoping we get answers soon.

    Thanks man. Never done the ladder climb before, but should be fun.

    Has anybody heard when the civil service commission may start to send out the emails or letters for the departmental interviews? I was figuring that it might be this week since the academy is starting may 11th. The last time i spoke with Mr. Wilson he did not have a time frame.

    I'm assuming you meant March 11? No word of interviews yet, although as of this morning my status has been updated. I would like to think we'll hear something real soon.

    There are some postings of their past academies on youtube. You might be able to catch a glimpse on one of them. My guess is 30 per floor, but that's just going off of the century link building that they do the 9/11 stair climb in. Probably a similar layout or something close.

    If anyone is interested I've got DFD's Chief McGrail's High Rise Ops book and there is a full chapter on their academy. If you guys want some details on what to expect I could post some stuff. Just let me know.
    Nothing is as unimpressive as someone who is unwilling to learn.

    As of today, my status is "Current Department Interview". Here's what it says:

    As part of the Certification to the Manager of Safety, you must undergo an interview by the Denver Fire Department. The Manager of Safety will not review any files until an interview and recommendation is made by the Oral board panel. You will receive notification for your departmental interview appointment.

    Get your answers ready men! Boxers of Briefs?

    I have no idea! No one ever told me after the test. I was in the 70s last year after the written, no idea now...

    I though about calling Mr Wilson, but don't want to bug him.

    Yeah i know what you mean i don't like calling to bug either but every time I do he always says to give him a call if i have any other question. My last ranking was around 57 last time i checked.
