    how does the Charleston process usually work? do they do the physical and written on the same day? and do they rank you by your scores?

    If you click this link http://www.charleston-sc.gov/dept/content.aspx?nid=2495 and click Firefighter Recruitment, it shows starting pay, pay grades and it looks like the minimum is $30K and some change.

    When are they looking at starting a class?

    Also, does CFD have ALS companies/does CFD hire Firemedics?

    CFD11, do you guys have an active dive resuce/swiftwater team? If so, would you say the team and equipment are comparable to Savannah Fire's dive team? I was doing some digging on the department's web site, but I couldn't find that info.

    Glad to have you on here and thank you in advance!

    @ CFD11

    How many people did they hire off the last list?

    Is the HOBET test the entrance exam?


    Thanks

    Iwantafirecareer, they really don't have a true list like most large fd's. They hire well into the mid 80's on the written though. Last test I think lasted for two or three probie classes of 20-30. The hobet or what ever it is called is a separate test to test the likelihood of passing EMT B. I don't know I never had to take it so I guess google may be your best friend on the test info.
    Thank you for the info, sir. That sounds fantastic!

    What is the process like after the written test? I see an oral interview but no mention of a physical test. Also, maybe it's a bit early to ask but what is the cost of living and such for the area? Thank you in advance!
