    I think the CC website said something to the effect of "Candidates will receive information pertaining to the next step within four weeks after the hiring period closes." If I understand that correctly, we won't hear anything until after July 3rd, the last day to appy for CC, at the earliest.

    I looked at the last hire, and this one changes by only 3 days: 6/22/2010 (apply), 8/9/2010 (written), 12/9/2010 (my oral board)...

    If all stays the same this time,...6/19/2012 (apply), 8/6/2012 (written), 12/ 6/2012 (oral board).....but I guess it depends on the urgency to hire. I don't think the last hire was anywhere near 60-100.

    I received the email notifying me that the exam will be August 6th @ 8 am. However, I checked my gov't jobs status and the test time is for 2 pm. Anyone else in the same boat? I'm going to call on Monday to verify.

    I emailed HR and they said that the email is your official invitation as well as the correct time. I guess I'll be showing up for the 8am!

    got my app in and received the invite for the written test.
    I am from out of state and don't want to waste a bunch of money traveling out there several times for the application process if I would just be wasting my time, so that is the reason for the following question.

    From my understanding they are looking to hire 60 positions, of those 60 positions are most of those going to be the paramedic firefighter, not the entry level non medic positions? I do not have my medic so that is the reason i ask. I know last time around they hired mostly medics.

    Am testing on August 6th, at 2pm. raptorhunter89, I attended one of the outreach sessions and they informed us that their policy states that each academy is made up of 50% EMT's and 50% Medics.

    Is CC a dept. where you have to have your EMT cert before you apply?

    Does anyone know if they allowed 2500 applicants for Firefighter 1 and then 2500 applicants for Firefighter 1 Paramedic or did they just allow 2500 between the two openings? I'm hoping 2500 between the two openings.

    In previous recruitment's they wanted you to have your EMT-B or EMT-I but they did not specify this time around on the job listing. you may want to contact HR and verify.

    They have an academy from the last test starting on July 23rd so I would assume that the time frame would be close to the same as last time. Yes it half medics and half EMT's so roughly 30 or so of each.

    Doesn't appear you have to be an EMT this time around

    Well, I checked the book(s), and it looks like I've missed (at least) seven questions.....don't know what the cutoff will be....hopefully I got the other 93 correct. Good luck!
