    I have a feeling the January or any class next year will be finalized in the next month or two. Budget workshops are in the 2nd week of November. Will keep you posted.

    I received an email from Heather stating that the department would not be hiring until late 2013 possibly even 2014.

    Was this email in response to one that you sent or a "generic formed response" type letter?

    The next class will also be dependant on the opening/ground breaking of the Chatham Parkway station. This will house an engine and truck. So another 30.

    Thats incredible. You spend all this time to go through the process and then are lucky enough to be selected and you screw it up on the first day. Thats unreal.

    It's a mixture in ages actually, ranging from 18-43. Most are in mid 20's

    It appears 2013 will be a year of maintaining current services for the Fire Department. The budget is in a tough place due to the unpredictability of the LOST (Local Option Sales tax) funds the City of Savannah may or may not receive. That being said, the department is making no cuts and will still possibly be holding a recruit class in 2013. Ground has recently been broken on the Bradley Point station and the possibility of ground breaking of Chatham Parkway and Sweetwater remain high. If you are interested in or are currently in the process for Savannah Fire, please continue to follow the Fire Department website at www.savannahfire.org
