    Yeah, I agree. What I did notice though was that it said employees in this class 'FireFighter Recruit' are required to live within 15 miles. So hopefully, that is not the case after the academy. Either way, if I have to live in Yuma to do the job so be it.

    if you look at the descriptions for all the positions in the department they all say it at the bottom.

    I just got the e-mail but I didn't make a lot of sense on the test time, so I picked 10am just in case she was asking.

    The HR lady is going to be out of the office till the 22nd (tuesday) so thats why you probably haven't heard anything.

    Guess that explains it, last I heard it was the 17th.

    As far as the test, I haven't found any mention of a study guide and I could swear that I saw somewhere that it was a general test.
