    Default City of Raleigh Hiring, September 2012 Process

    All,

    City of Raleigh (NC) is hiring, beginning September 4th, 2012. Keep up with the following site for details....www.raleighnc.gov/fire

    FYI, I realize it currently says the process is "closed", however, it will be open soon.

    I'll definitely be applying for this one, I have heard nothing but good things about RFD. Anyone have any info to salary, cost of living, and how busy they are?

    Did any of you that have asked questions, take the time to go to the link provided and look and see? Most if not all questions are answered somewhere in there.
    Stay Safe and Well Out There....

    If you have any doubt that you may be disqualified (criminal record, driving record), then you may want to go with your gut.

    No, doesn't matter what you have or what you don't, you'll get it all in the academy.

    RFD, I found most of my answers in older threads... but, still curious as to how busy it is down there. I know like anywhere, from company to company the answer can change, but do people looking start a career there have a decent shot of being busy and running a decent bit of fire?

    We're a diverse city, and so are our companies. Thursday I worked and we ran 19, for a Ladder Company we rolled.

    But, other parts of the City may have gone out 2 times.

    Durham sees a good bit of fire, but their process just closed. We see our share, but we're bigger and more spread out.

    Engine 29 and Engine 30 are in the works, as well as Ladder 9 and Ladder 10. We are in the process of re-organizing to a Special Operations Command set-up, and will be putting a Heavy Rescue Unit staffed with five, and two Squad Companies in service around January or so. Lots of changes going on, and the city is growing like a weed.
