    The latest word is probably around 20 although there have been very recently some unexpected early retirements so it may be one or 2 more than that.Depends if those positions get filled from the promotion list I would guess.Good luck to all.Alex is a great department

    "Recruitment Update:

    Due to the background package turn in date being extended, the interview notification schedule has been pushed back. Subsequently, all the recruitment dates have been pushed back, and a new recruitment timeline will be placed on the Fire Department website soon.

    Candidates have NOT been notified if they are moving on in the process.

    The recruit school slated for July has been pushed back to September.

    When the notifications are made, please DO NOT email asking why you were not selected. It is a very competitive process and not everyone can be selected."

    Gee, I wish they would put up the new timeline sooner rather than later.

    Just curious if anyone has received any updates or knows any information as to when they will be posting the new schedule of future dates of the process?

    1300 applied, 60 left in the process. Good luck to everyone still in the process! I think they said they were hiring about 18 people. Can anyone confirm?

    If you are looking for a personal trainer in the DC area that is specifically geared towards CPAT testing take a look at www.wildfireadventures.com. I ran the recruit training, CPAT testing and several other programs for Washington DCFD. DCFD does not currently have classes in session nor are we testing. Iíve tested several hundred applicants and know what is needed to pass the test. If youíre looking to get in shape or have a specific goal in mind such as CPAT take a look at the site.

    Was scheduled for a Physical after the Chief Interviews. But haven't heard anything further than that. Hoping to hear more information soon. HR was saying the class is supposed to start Sept 17. So I would imagine selections will be coming within the next two weeks.

    Thanks Fireguy12345 - Yes, I haven't heard anything after that either.

    Any idea of how many people still left in the process?

    I think the rumor according to previous posts is that they interviewed 60 for 18-20 spots. I would guess it was around 30 or below for the Fire Chief interview. From what I could tell from people I talked to during my Poly, Psych etc it sounded like everyone was scheduled for all of that and the uniform fitting as well. I read in one of the previous posts there were some unexpected retirements. So maybe if we're lucky they'll take everyone the Chief interviewed.
