    This is confusing. I don't think this current list would've lasted only six months. I'm hoping for hopefully one more academy in the next year off this list that just tested last august, but all I hear out of Clark County is pretty negative stuff when it comes to budgeting and prospective future hires.

    Did anyone else get this email? Been in the process the whole time, and never got an email saying the list is done.

    I have also been in the process the whole time and never got an email. I doubt they would just drop the list six months in.Who knows though. Im tempted to call HR for confirmation. I dont believe anything until I hear it straight from CCFD.

    I was in the first round of Chief's interviews and didn't hear anything; I doubt they'd expire the list so quickly, but if anyone contacts them and finds out for sure - please let us all know!

    Was camping this last weekend in San Diego and the guy next door was a CC FF. He said he heard just last week they want to put another group in a tower soon. He also said it would be off the current list. There is still hope!! Hope this helps...

    I called HR and talked to Carol. She said that the list is no longer good. Chief Washington wanted the list expired early so that's what they had to do.

    Woooow. All those flights to and from Vegas and the list was the shortest lived in history. Ooouuuchhhh.

    I feel sorry for those of you who made the list. As much as I would like the Clark County Firefighter to be right for the sake of those on the list, the HR analyst is most likely right. So will Clark County be testing again in the near future?

    Doubt it. There are really no spaces to place these guys now. Like I said, my roommates haven't had a full day of overtime in months. Speculation on moving some rigs (mostly the trucks) around and putting up some new rescues at stations that really need them, like 33s and some others down on the southwest end. This is just my opinion from a outsider looking in, I see at least 5 years of them being good on staffing levels. But look out for City, and dare I say it maybe even North Las Vegas soon!

    Wow. Fairly demoralizing with the financial and time commitment I made to this one, but I'm not quite sure what the point to run a new process for only 8 months worth of time was? Seems like either things are getting really bad or there was some type of strategy behind it from the beginning that we don't know about-maybe claiming financial crisis or something. Guess it's time to keep an eye out for city or Henderson.........

    The list wasn't even official for six months. The first Chief's interviews weren't finished until the week following Christmas. Craziness. Can't imagine myself testing for them again after this. Wow.

    Wow, I spent money to fly out there multiple times just to have the list closed out early, very disappointing.

    I know their has been conflicting reports but I spoke to a gentleman in HR today and he informed me that they abolished the Firefighter/Paramedic list and they might possibly open the Firefighter/Paramedic recruitment again in a few months. He also said that the Firefighter list is still active and they won't do another Firefighter recruitment for another year or so. Good luck to those that are still in the process.

    I called HR today and couldn't get a hold of anyone. Everyone keeps saying they've talked to someone in HR-I will try to call again tomorrow and just confirm with Carol whether the list entirely is gone or if it's just ff/medic..........rumors are a swirlin!!!!!

    This does sound correct. I was on the ff/pm list. I have also heard the rumor about another ff/pm recruitment in the future. Just wish they weren't so hush hush about what's going on. I went out to Vegas six times for this. I won't be going back. Gl to all

    Same deal for me also. I've tried different times on multiple days. Feel like maybe we aren't going to get an "answer" for the most part and we should probably just hope for a surprise at some point in the future....I'll keep on it HB82

    Just got off the phone with Carol as she called me back today, and the words straight from her mouth were that the ff/paramedic list has indeed been expired, while the ff/emt list is still quite alive and kicking. She said she wasn't sure what the plans were for everyone left on that list as far as hiring goes, but to keep sending any updated information that we might have. Somewhat of a relief on my end, but I just feel bad for the medics that got expired on....

    Talked to a guy on the job when I was out there not long ago. He said as far as he knows they don't need the guys they just hired staffing wise let alone even more. So doesn't sound very optimistic.

    Yeh that doesnt sound like great news. Wonder if they will keep the list for over a year.

    Lately I've been hearing rumors county is going to be "testing" again. Not too sure what these people meant, but the heard it from their EMT instructors. Has anyone heard anything like this? Curious to know if they mean they are starting the process over, doing a testing for medics since that list is done, or going to be doing more chiefs interviews from the current list.
