    Congrats to those who get to move on. I was out of the process after the interview. it was my 1st ever with a fire dept and i bombed it. I was very nervous. I still got on this thread to see how the process is moving a long. IFD is my dream dept and hope to work there 1 day. Im only 24 so I shuld be able to participate in a few more processes. Its hard knowing that I'm gonna have to wait a few years at least but just wanted to say congrats to those who made it as far as you did and to those even moving farther. If u haven't got an email yet keep your fingers crossed.Trust me I know what it's like being disappointed from receiving that heartbreaking email. Once again congrats and good luck to all.

    Aerial climb is one of the last steps if they are going to do it.

    Keep testing even if it's not with IFD. The more you test the more you get comfortable with the process. There are other departments within the state and surrounding states that are good to work for. It took most of us several times to finally get hired somewhere. Get your EMT or Medic, find a department to volunteer, keep your nose clean etc. The key is to not give up, but to keep working towards your dream.

    Nothing here, still have hope though since prowland247 is the only one on the forum that has mentioned anything. Hopefully they still have more people to contact.

    Thanks Aspire, my last name starts with an R.

    IFDFFENG20 I was wondering if you knew how many are going for finger printing? Also what are the next few steps in the process?

    I don't know how many are going to be finger printed. At some point there will be conditional offers once the okay is given to hire people. Then there is usually a physical by our physician and a psychological exam and interview with a psychologist. I don't know if there will be an aerial climb.

    I am getting worried by the hour. I have not received any email. Would there be any notification for people who did not get selected?

    Man, this is such a bummer. I completed the background, fingerprinting, etc. during the 2008 process, but with the mergers and poor economy my opportunity never arrived. I was really hoping to have a better showing this time around, but it doesn't look good. Age isn't my friend, so this was my last shot. Hopefully, those of you moving on will eventually get your chance. IFD is an amazing department and anyone making it through to the academy should appreciate just how fortunate they are.

    Prowland247, congrats! It looks like you're the only one of us in this thread moving on. Be sure to keep us updated on your progress!

    I took, and passed the CPAT, but haven't gotten any email to move on. The vibe I got from the proctor at the CPAT was that if we passed the CPAT then we were in great shape due to all the hiring that needed to be done. Anyone have any idea if they are still sending out emails, or if they were all sent at once last week? Not getting one during this wave has me worried due to all the budget issues.

    I just turned 30 about 5 months ago and most definitely age is not on my side either. However, I am still hopeful that something will happen. IFD, any idea if there are more emails to be sent out? Thank you for your time.

    Remember, the CPAT is only pass/fail. The scores had been determined by this point. Over 250 people were scheduled to take the CPAT. Passing the CPAT was just another step in the overall process. We need to hire for sure, but someone who passed the CPAT could be ranked #250 and I doubt the list would go this far.

    My guess is that all the emails for this round have been sent out. If they hire a second class down the road, more people will be notified. I don't like being the bearer of bad news, but I don't want to give anyone false hope either.

    Also, some may not pass the background and/or physical. Some may not take the offer to move on as well. A few who are close to the top of the list may get a shot.

    I'm just really hoping they actually do hire off this list again.
