    I called yesterday and they told me my congratulations letter was ready and I could pick it up and sign my papers. Went up there and they had me sign my letter of employment. Also they gave me a big packet of papers to fill out, insurance, direct deposit, w-4, etc. The official letter is also included which is needed to pick up uniforms. Will do that first thing next week along with turning in all the paper work at city hall. They said that they ate still uncertain if enough certified people will be available to make a fast track, will find out on first day of class, which is the 6th of nov. Officially turned in my two week notice and ready for this new and exciting opportunity! Good luck to all!!

    Did everyone with a ranking over 40 have to call to get their score? I called them the 14th to get my rank and they really didnt give me any details other than my final ranking and that they would be contacting me in the future. Is this basically what everyone ranked over 40 had been hearing?

    Para1 I am in keller. We could meet up if you want. PM me and we can figure something out. Going to be long drives everday from FT worth to Dallas, but definitly worth it. I have been trying for seven years to get on a department. Persistance and hard work paysoff. To the ones who didn't make it this round, keep at it. I have been close so many times. Don't give up if it is what you truly want.

    I have been paramedic certified for 5 plus years with numerous other fire and instructor certs. I wanted to be on a big department and still be able to use medic skills.
