    I interviewed as well, I also heard the same as you about them hiring 33-34 in 4 weeks.... Just received a call today about drug/nicotine test and finger printing next week.

    I got the call as well for the drug/nicotine screening I would assume we will find out soon when it's official

    If they are hiring 33, they probably drug test about 38 people. That way they have a few back ups ready to go in case someone fails or decides they don't really wanna work here. That's how it seems they did it in the past anyway, but nothing is consistent here so who knows?

    Someone said they asked the LT. that was there that day on Tuesday and he said there were 13 people being tested each day so that's 52 if it's correct, but again, that's hearsay. The lady at the drug test place told me BCFR should have the results in 7 days.

    In my opinion it would only make sense that they do since they require EMTs to be medic certified with a certain time frame at the cost of the dept so why not save $ and time by preferring medics over EMTs at time of hire. There was a guy before me Tuesday that was an EMT but all the others I've spoken to (about 6-7) were medics so I guess only time will tell.

    Agreed. As long as we pass background and drug/nicotine I'm betting we'll be good to go. I'm sending in my reference questionnaires this morning so next should be medical and actual bunker gear fitment.

    Goodluck to us all.

    Not yet.. Someone I know got an email about the their references not being received yesterday but he straightened that out. My assumption is their verifying/filing that now and then maybe will make their calls.

    I'll post up as soon as I get a call. Subscribe to this thread so you get an email to any replies it may receive.
