    I waited approx 1 hour and drove 5.5 hrs to hand it in, I heard the rumor about back to back classes of 40, I also heard a rumor of approx 2000 people applying to take it, when your around 120 to 160 short (from my understanding there somewhere in that ballpark) 2000 people is not alot and still gives everyone a good shot. A plus is tht you had to go and hand it in in person, which deters alot of the people that seen serious about the job.

    Yeah, 2000 isn't a bad number at all... especially with the talk of the amount of hiring potential. i have a 4 hour drive. but its well worth it, they seem like a very aggressive, busy, squared away dept! Best of luck to you all!

    I drove up from NYC on Thursday to drop off an app, wait was only about 25 minutes. Anyone know much about what the test is gonna look like or how the process works if your number gets called? I wasn't able to make the open houses.

    I did do some research and found some interesting opinions on the hiring process from awhile back (see link below), any idea if it's changed since then?

    Still no test date or time? The website they told us to check still has a tentative date and time listed.

    From the city's website, letters for the oral board will be sent out May 1st and interviews will take place on May 18th and 19th. Looks like they're moving fast to get the first class started soon. Good luck to all

    I just saw that on the City's site as well... At least the process is still moving much, much faster then most places... a 2 day delay is nothing. Though, I know it will feel like forever!

    anyone have any idea as to how they rank people? do they give interviews to only the higher scoring canidates or does everyone that passes the reading comprehension portion get an interview? I heard they were going to hire in the area of 150 people, do they put paramedic and firefighters in the same class? also, do they actually run any ambulances or is EMS contracted out to a separate agency? anyone who has any info it would be greatly appreciated!

    I'm not sure how they plan on ranking candidates...I'm sure we will find out within the next few days. That 150 your talking about would be if the city decides to actually fill every vacancy within the next two years. So for now the plan is 1 class of 40 followed directly by another class of approximately 40. Anything after that will depend on the amount of retirees during the life of the list.

    Medics will be getting preference and I would assume they would be in the same class as the non-medics who get hired. NHFD does run two ambulances also known as "Emergency Units", rumor has it that they are looking to bring an additional 2 Emergency Units into service very soon.

    And just for fun here's a pic of Truck 2? driving around Yale on a nice spring day
