    Condition offer
    Fingerprinting
    Background packet
    Psych
    Uniform fitting
    Medical

    If all goes well final offer

    I dont know if they have figured out who they want for the
    Spring class, but they did state 2 classes from the list with a
    possible 3rd class if the county approves it.

    When we met for fingerprinting on saturday it was everyone that
    had gotten selected for the 1st class, which is to begin Jan 12th.
    It was around 30 of us.

    Good luck to those who weren't selected hopefully they select you
    for the spring class. I'll try to give any info or updates about anything
    I find out.

    The first class was supposed to begin tomorrow but the class has been postponed. They are waiting for a couple people to finish being processed. So as soon as that happens my guess is in the next week or so the new start date notifications should go out. I heard there should be atleast 2 classes off this list. Also they should be accepting apps for probationary emt sometime this year...maybe spring time

    To my knowledge they dont post an eligibility list. They may contact people early with conditional offers for the second class early to help cut down on the processing time..(backgrounds, physicals, etc.)

    It would just be nice for the department to keep everyone informed. The last I heard from them, they sent me a Release of Information Form way back in October. I thought that was promising news, but then I didn't hear anything for a while. Then in November, I saw on here the first class was set to start. I waited about another month for any news, but nothing came through the inbox. That's when I contacted the office to see where the hiring process stood, to which they replied: the first class was selected (which I already knew from this forum) and they'd be using the list for further classes throughout 2013.

    I understand there are politics in these things, but when people are putting time, money, and effort into joining an organization, they deserve (at the very least) update emails as things progress. I'm not trying to bash the department, just saying that human resources and recruitment could handle things a little better (although I give them credit for doing a much better job than some other departments).

    So is the class underway? If so, How many people are in the class? How are the candidates? Were the right guys hired or was the dept filling a quota?

    I heard mixed rumors. One was that they had 6 people decline the job at the last minute. Also another rumor was late results from from medicals. Who knows what the situation is. Things will hopefully change soon.
