    Its going to be from the previous list. I had a buddy get an email asking if he was still interested in MDFR and if he was to reply by July 30. He was 73 on the list. They got a new foam truck at the airport which takes 15 guys to man between the 3 shifts. That's why they are hiring 15 the end of Sept. Another buddy that got hired last August in the first class of this list told me that a department email was sent out saying 3 classes of 15, 20, 20.

    I got an email last week asking if I was still interested and to do the Background packet and CPAT. MDFR was always my number 1 dept to get hired with. But I got hiring with Palm Beach County this year so I'm turning them down. Looks like things are getting better as far as hiring and alot of people getting picked up. Good luck to everyone.

    I heard they went up to the high 500s and started at 300 in the emails.

    I'm 252 and my friend is 260 and neither of us got emails, but we have already done the CPAT and filled out all the backround questionnaire. We will see what happens I'm just glad to hear tings are moving.

    Oh dam, i guess they'll exhaust your list before moving on with ours. The email is pretty much about that, the background and cpat

    Yes, they said at orientation that there will be a new job announcement in the summer around July. They said it's still unclear whether it will be an "Open" hire selection giving preference to FireMedics or if it will be strictly for FireMedics.

    I just received a email 2 days ago regarding a orientation and a cpat. Im excited cause I think I took the civil service exam almost 2 yrs ago.

    I would like to ask any of the current MDCFR employees a question though. I was told by a friend who currently works for DADE County that all new hires are no longer eligible for defined benefit through FRS and that all new hires are only offered 401k.

    Can anyone confirm or deny this for me ?

    Just took the CPAT last week, waiting on backgrounds to contact me reference the psychological. I think they want to hire around 40 but that's just a guess and move the class up sooner but nothing is set in stone.

    I just took the CPAT also, although I dont believe anyone will be contacting us until at least May. They're still processing the January orientation group from what I heard.
