    I would probably still be in the dark had I turned in the correct documents lol. I asked him three different times if he had the right guy. I even called the recruiting office to confirm my rank. Still doesn't seem real, I had already accepted that I just didn't cut it. No word on a start date.

    Does anybody know if people have declined their offer? I was told i'm ranked #100 so i'm still holding out hope somehow they'll make it to me. Hope everything is going well with everybody in the october class.

    I'm sitting @ 103, but after reading Novasdaddy story, I'm going to call the recruiting office again to double check my ranking. I hope DFR decides to extend the hiring list or folks decide to decline their offer. God speed.

    I just called and she told me I'm #99. So I guess somehow I moved up one spot.

    I got the call for transcripts as well, I asked since I was 91, why they needed them. He said that they are contacting the next 10 ranked in case of dropouts, he also said there have been 2-3 dropouts thus far. Not sure what this means for me or the rest of us, but its looking up.

    I called yesterday to triple check that I was in fact, on the list for the March class. She said the office is relocating to Dolphin St. (I'm assuming she was referring to the academy) and that I should be getting a call in a couple weeks. Good luck to those of you on the edge of getting hired. A lot can happen between now and March! If any of the guys in the current, October class still check this forum I would really like to hear how the academy is going for you. Thanks One more note, I found a really great video on Youtube made by one of the recruits from class 306. Here's the link, http://youtu.be/GhTP-BjQG9c

    I just wanted to throw this out there. A few of us that will be starting in March met up today to introduce ourselves. If there is anyone else that has been following this forum that was in the 61-90 rank, feel free to shoot me an email. I'm sure I speak for everyone when I say we would love to meet you prior to the beginning of the academy. Just let me know.

    I called today actually. She said the March guys will actually be starting in April and that we should be getting a call before the end of the year. Beginning of the year at the latest. That way we will have a few months notice. As long as we pass background and physical, we're golden

    I saw this post on DFR's facebook page

    ATTENTION! DALLAS FIRE-RESCUE DEPARTMENT WILL BEGIN ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR TRAINEE FIRE & RESCUE OFFICERS, FEBRUARY 9 -23, 2013. EVERYONE IS INVITED TO ATTEND A JOB FAIR AT OUR TRAINING FACILITY - 5000 DOLPHIN RD. DALLAS, TX 75223 ON SATURDAY FEBRUARY 16, 2013, 0900 - 1500. GOOD LUCK.

    I was really hoping that DFR would extend the current list but looks like that door is all but closed. Does anyone know how many recruits DFR is looking to hire?

    Hey everyone, it's been quite a while since I got on here, but I have good reason. Dallas Fire Academy is one of the most awesome things that has happened to me, and time has flown by since we started. For those of you that start in March/April: Congrats, again. You're headed for an awesome experience. Be prepared to work hard, study hard, and have a blast doing it. April seems like a while away, but just keep your nose clean, stay/get in shape, and get ready to be challenged. My class leaves the academy in May, so we'll be sharing the facility for about a month. Take care, and Merry Christmas to all of you.

    If anyone reading this didn't make the cut this year, TRY AGAIN. The effort is well worth the reward.

    Is DFD still sending everyone hired to get their paramedic? If not how is this affecting the rotation on the rescue units for those that are coming in with a paramedic card, or are already working for DFD?
