    Default Alachua County FL Question

    Hello everyone,
    I was wondering if anyone has been through the Alachua county hiring process. I'm scheduled to take the written exam, but I'm not to sure what to expect as far as material on the exam. Any info on their test and process would be much appreciated.
    Thanks

    It may be worth a call to their HR dept. Sometimes they can give you a heads up on what to expect for the written.

    Thanks for the reply, I called them and they just told me "general knowledge". I asked whether that knowledge was general firefighting/ems knowledge or just general knowledge you would get in high school or college and the HR guy said he didn't know so I guess it looks like it will be a shot in the dark.

    I'd plan on it going either way. Since FL you have to be a state certified FF to even apply, most depts seem to use a FF general knowledge test. I'm going to go over my study material from the academy just to be safe. The 13th will be here soon :-)

    Awesome I'm sure I'll see you up there. Do you know much about the department? I tried looking up some info on google, but I didnt really find too much.
