    Just curious if anyone has heard any new news this week? I also passed my poly and talked to a recruiter about 3 weeks ago after turning in my employment questioner packet. They said if you are being asked to turn in the employment questioner then you are still sitting in a good spot and should be getting a call for an interview mid to late August.

    Good luck everyone!

    I will be taking the civil service exam in 2014 if they plan on hiring again around March or April. If I don't get hired throughout the process I am considering saving and paying my own way through paramedic school. If you are a paramedic is there a pretty good chance of getting hired as opposed to not being EMT/Paramedic and getting hired with Dallas Fire Rescue?

    I am going to be taking the 2014 Civil Service Exam if they are going to hire again in the spring. If I don't make it through the hiring process, I plan to save and pay my way through paramedic school at UT Southwestern. Is there a better chance of getting on at Dallas if you are already a paramedic as opposed to not being a paramedic?

    Just depends, I know they are hurting for medics and having trouble finding money in the budget to send guys thru that are already on shift. It sure doesn't hurt but no guarantee. I'm fire and medic for 5+ years and didn't make the cut last year.

    I'm in the same boat.. FF/paramedic, 5 + yrs experience, didn't make the cut last year. DFR is NOT paramedic preferred. There are many fire departments in the metroplex that are. So, that being said, if you want to work for DFR specifically getting your red patch wouldn't hurt. If you're looking to get onto a fire department, getting your paramedic would definitely help. Also, if you go to UT then you'll probably do your ride-outs w/ DFR, that'll also be helpful

    I am in paramedic school right now, and live in So Cal. I am hoping they give me enough time to work around my schedule for the interview and such... I applied last year and didn't make the cut just like a few of the people on here. Good luck to everyone!
