    a buddy of mine down there said they are interviewing 10% of what passed the CPAT and they picked from that bunch what they deemed the potential "top 10%" for interviews. so sounds like 610 passed and from there it's all unknown how the guys/gals who got called got picked

    Has anyone got a straight "NO" from CCFD HR?

    Just that 10% who got chiefs interviews have a chance to get hired from this list? I figured they would do another round of chiefs interviews later on for another academy.

    Well if they called 61 people for Chiefs and that's the top 10% overall. That means there are 610 people for both Firefighter & Firefighter/Paramedic; so that's about 305 for each pool.

    What I remembered the CCFD HR lady told me is that for the other 549 people who didn't get the call, we're all still in the running for the next two years for each round of Rookie School depending on need, funding and ultimately the Chief.

    The lady in HR told me at the CPAT that there was 75 medics going to CPAT. So actaully the list is heavily weighed on the emt side. They will most likely go back to the list after the academy and pull the medics that were on the firefighter recruitment that didn't have their certs in time to apply for the medic recruitment.

    Don't quote me on this, but I thought I read somewhere that when they do a recruit class at CCFD, they have to hire 50% EMTS and 50% medics per their IAFF contract. Maybe someone more familiar with the situation could explain it better than I can.

    Ya, they have a a Union agreement. If they want a different ratio than 50/50, they need the approval from their local IAFF.. I read this some place in the past...

    I take it no one has heard anything this week? The HR lady said they wanted to start calling people this week. Good luck to everyone!

    They were, according to Clark County HR. Unless they added extra dates, of course, which I'm assuming someone would have posted that they had been contacted, if that were the case.

    any idea on how many more interviews they did? Or when they will make calls now? I am really surprised that they did more interviews and we didn't have anyone post about a call to go on this thread

    Did you ask how many they were interviewing during your round? Or how many days over which they were doing them?

    Just curious-didn't have enough who passed backgrounds? Or didn't have enough because they raised the number going to academy?!? Good luck to everyone who is still very much in this process!

    Backgrounds arent until after they make offers, so cant be that. Lets hope its them wanting a bigger academy instead of just disliking so many of the first group
