    Based on how they contacted new hires in the past I don't think we will hear anything until go time. I wouldn't worry too much. We all seem to be in a good position, just got to be patient. The whole thing is speculative and everyone involved seems to have varying opinions. We could get the call tomorrow for all we know

    Naw, I imagine that will drag out for a while, hoping it doesn't hold us up for too long. If that lawsuit holds up the promotions later this month we could be waiting a while longer

    From who I've spoke to the lawsuit was filed. But he unknown is the hiring process right now. They seem to the think are gonna rush us into the academy shortly and possibly hold off on the next round until the suit is settled. I'm kinda just hanging out and not stressing about it. From people that work in the service it seems like the call from HR comes out of the blue. Hoping that happens for all of us real soon. We will have to meet in the academy and talk about all this eagerness and waiting!

    That's probably better than my time right now. Seriously! I was training but was side tracked by a minor MVC. Anyway hopefully this week I'll hit the elipticle hard. A slow run usually isn't a problem for me. A slow run in our gear is a different story. Lol. I'll probably be the old man in the group if everything works out for us so I have to step it up!

    Heard the same thing from a PFD employee this week. She said that she heard December hire/January Academy. That would not be so bad.

    I spoke with the fire inspector last week. Told me the plan was still for late Oct, or early Nov academy. Also told me he was given he next 25 candidates to start the backgrounds on. That's a great sign for all of us! Anyway, I know some people in the department and they have also said they are gonna do a second academy in January on top of the oct/nov one. So, if that's the case we should hear something very soon!

    I did get the call! . I'll be there! It's perfect because I can give adequate notice to my employer now and kick my cardio into overdrive for the next few weeks! Is everyone local or are you going to make arrangements to travel?
