    Cdoza- Is this your second time through the process?
    This is my second time. I was ranked 120 last year and praying i make the cut this year! feeling confident in my chance.
    BLS ambulances? that strictly does BLS calls?? Sounds good. This is my 2nd time thru as well. Do you have a friend named Doug?

    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.
