    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

    once more thing, I was impressed and happy to see how nice and personable the NHFD firefighters were. Seems like a bunch of great guys working there. Very nice. Just wish I could have the opportunity to tell them about myself. I feel I have alot to offer the dept etc.
    Are they going to have an actual interview? Hope so

    To be honest I don't understand why the fire service still uses a civil service process to hire. Hiring should be based on merit and qualifications not your answer to such open ended questions. But either way I prefer the video, it definitely reduces any anxiety because even if there were a panel asking the questions the questions would've been the same. I don't believe there is supposed to be any more interviews, if you have CPAT you should be getting your list number in a few weeks or if not you will find out where you stand after taking NHFD's physical agility test. Good luck!
