    I believe 2nd academy will start sometime in June. I'm in A band for both lateral/entry-level, but wasn't selected for interview earlier this year. Not sure where I stand for the next one, but unfortunately I've also heard they've begun offering for the 2nd academy already. Can anyone confirm this?

    Nice! Did you interview recently or awhile ago after we tested?

    I figured as much. I didn't know if they were pulling more off the list to interview. Congrats though, and good luck with the rest of the process.

    I've been hearing a June academy as well but details seem to be lacking. I passed background for the last one but was not selected, does anyone know if they are going to still consider people that passed background or if they are just going to grab a whole new set of people.

    It makes since to run some people threw background right now depending on how many people are still sitting in the available pool.

    Just out of curiosity, you guys that moved on... what did you score on the Fire Team test? I thought I did fairly well, A band, and never contacted for either academy

    Any updates on the long-term status of SAFER hires and/or the City's finances to support them long term?

    Greetings,

    My name is Bill Hicks and I am in my 18th year in the fire service, and currently serve as a fire chief. I am also a doctoral candidate at Eastern Kentucky University and my dissertation topic involves investigating the current status of firefighter reciprocity among the 50 states. I am seeking members of the fire service who may have experience in moving from state to state and seeking reciprocity, or recognition of certification issued by your old state, in a new state. Also, if you came from the military and sought reciprocity for DOD certificates, I would like to hear from you as well. If you have not experienced this, please forward the link below to anyone who you may know that has done this.

    For those that have such experiences, I am humbly asking you to give 5 minutes of your time to answer a short series of question found at the link below on your experiences with seeking reciprocity, or recognition when you moved from one state to another, regardless of being paid or volunteer members in your department.

    Also at the end of the survey you will have a space to share any experiences you may have had when dealing with reciprocity of fire service certifications in your department and with your state. Also feel free to forward this to any fire service member(s) who you feel would have something to say on the topic.

    Your anonymity is protected throughout the process. Just click or copy the link below to begin.

    https://ekussem.co1.qualtrics.com/SE...Z1aVMb9w1QhYtD

    Also, if you would like to share your experiences with me in more depth after taking part in the survey, please leave your email in the beginning of the comments section at the end of the survey.
