    Carney. After the background check is it just the medical part that left to do?

    Yes you get finger printed as the last step. Once that is complete only those being offered a job will get a medical physical done . Of note still pay attention to the safer grants as that's their goal to hire 50. As of last Friday they had not been awarded a grant yet.

    It has been announced that the City of Cincinnati has won a safer grant of 8.07 million to hire 50 recruits. No idea on an exact start date but the Fire Chief has thrown out sometime in May. Good luck to all.

    No job offers yet. The selection works like this. They start with candidates 1, 2 ,3 and select candidate one. 2 and 3 get a check next to their name. They then go to 2, 3, 4 and pick number 3. Candidate 2 gets a second check and candidate 4 gets one check. They go to 2,4,5 and select number 5. Candidate 2 gets a third check, candidate 4 gets a second check. They go to 2, 4, 6 and select number 6. Candidate 2 has now been passed over four times and is removed from consideration and can no longer be eligible for a job. Candidate 4 gets a third check. They go to 4, 7, 8 and pick number 8 . Now candidate 4 has been considered four times and is removed from consideration and number 7 gets a check. That's how it's done. The answer I don't have is how many candidates are considered per round. If the number per round is higher than 3 than they can skip down the list quicker.

    On March 19, city council accepted the safer grant. That had to happen before anything. Since they accepted it, now they must decide the actual start date of the class. I keep hearing May but no official day. If it starts in may, look at the dates of all the Mondays, it will be one of those, except memorial day.

    I was just curious. My grandfather was at the 19s and 14s in the 50s and 60s. I used to stop into the 14s whenever I was downtown and bs with the guys.

    Carny, do you know if any job offers have been made? If not, do you have any guess of when they will start calling people? Also, do you have any workout tips to prepare for the recruit class?

    No job offers yet. My guess would be sometime this month if they start the class in may. There is no permanent start date for the class yet so that is up in the air. Likely guys will post on here that they have been offered a job before I am aware they have offered jobs, so check back here regularly.

    As far as working out. Do lots of push ups, sit ups, pull ups, running, and running stairs. That is what you will be doing mostly for 24 weeks.

    Carny, do you know if they're done with call outs for job offers for this class?

    Yes, at this point they would only call someone if a candidate does not take the job or fails a physical.

    Will people that didn't get a call be notified that they were not selected?
