    Congratulations to all of you who received final job offers! I happen to live right down the street from Station 37, so perhaps I'll see you around.

    From what it sounds like is there hasn't been a ton of applcants due to the requirements. But they did extend the due date for the CPAT.

    I see. I'm always curious how many applicants apply for lateral positions.

    Do you know anything about their department? Work schedule, bidding for different companies, labor management relations, employee satisfaction, etc? It looks to be a great department from everything I can find.

    I'm applying, I will be coming out for the CPAT on the 21st. I haven't had the best times on the CPAT at a lower elevation so this will be a challenge for me. I tested last time and I believe there were only like 60 that tested

    I wasn't prepared for the stations they had after the written. This year they have changed it up from the sounds of it after talking to Niki from HR. Niki said that there wasn't a lot of apps yet as of late last week but she said they usually wait until last minute.

    I am not familiar with their shifts or any thing that you asked about but I have heard nothing but good things about the EMS side of things.

    48/96
    No shift bids as of yet special teams have a lot to do with what station you are at.
    New rigs within the next couple years.
    It's the best department in the state.

    I think everyone should be privy to this info, especially those applying and those who work as firemen in the state of CO.

    48/96, huh? How's that at a busier house? I've done the berkley and 24/48.

    Good luck, firemedic0227. Let me know how your process goes and I'll do the same.

    It's not bad at all. If you get worked then you will be tired your first day off the same as the berkley.
