    Default Richmond Fire, VA... When?

    Its been since 09 I guess since a hiring process has been done and I know that they have a Recruit school that is going to graduate in January and I doubt they will run another class off this list which is probably exhausted.

    Does anyone have any inside information as to when they may start taking applications again for another hiring process for there next schools?

    They have a class going on now and will hire another one off the list to begin around February. There could be yet another one in 2012. They are getting what they want from the current list!

    Having said that, it will be a wait and see, but my guess probably in the fall of 2012.

    I received today, from a good source, that the class graduating this month will be it from this list.

    Look for a new application period coming soon. No official date as of yet.

    Sharpen your testing skills!!


    Stay tuned.

    Want some advice....GO APPLY ELSEWHERE!!!!! Richmond Fire morale is lowest its ever been. Find a few RFD guys and ask them in a private message what they think before you apply. FYI if your a white male then no need to even apply, unless you got some time of relative in the department.

    PWC or Alex as long as you don't mind driving some distance to work, as no firefighter can afford to ridiculous cost of living in Northern Virginia.

    Hoping the tickets are not to much when they do open up apps. I am a former Spider football player trying to get my foot in the door somewhere. I would love to be able to move back to VA and Richmond in particular. I hope they do test sometime soon.

    I heard this week, that there may not be an application period this year. The reason, there are very few current vacancies and very few are going to retire this year. There probably will be a lot going in late 2013 and 2014.


    It cost big bucks to take applications, and run the written and CPAT exams.


    I know this may not help those who are trying to get a job with them. Look elsewhere in Virginia or North Carolina.
