    Thanks chingon for the replies. I am def. interested in either Medic or Fire for major city, fire more then Medic but I've put a lot of time into school so I'd take either. Again thanks chigon.

    No need to be so sensitive, I meant funny. Outside that you seem to think I only speak with medics. I hear about it through various area fd's and your own people. I'm not some blinded medic nerd. i'm not doubting the entire kcmo dept as a whole, it's just not for me. I didnt say anything poor above, but with your quick defensiveness it seems like you are aware of your depts issues. Not every big dept has the same issues kcfd has had.

    LOL! eventhough my tread was hijacked, I got a lot of great info from the KCMO FD folks...thanks so much!!! I Passed the phone interview now on to assesment center this week... as a long standing Fire/EMS guy I would be honered to be offered a job with such an outstanding organisation as KCMO FD, I would be honered to ride on an KCMO Medic unit... as this is only a EMS hire..
    in solidarity brothers, wish me luck and if you have anything else to offer im all ears..and mouth shut!

    Kansas City KS is taking applications right now. I think the last day to pick up a packet is April 1m but dont hold me to that. Just google WYCO Unified Government and search open jobs. They are hiring EMT's and Medics, unknown amount. Rumors are between 15-30.

    KCK Operates 18 houses
    16 ALS engines
    3 ALS Quints
    3 BLS Trucks
    9 ALS Ambulances

    Not a bad place and firefighters are over $60K at 5 years..Not bad for Midwest Living

    I received a letter with interview date, time, and location this past week so we're finally going to start moving forward a bit. That's for the Firefighter process.
