    I talked with the chief after my polygraph and he said that they had funding right now to hire 4 but may hire a fifth depending on a retirement and funding.

    So they are just going to email the people that weren't selected this round but call the people that were selected this go around? Well I guess ya could still be called later on if they hire a 5th.

    Thanks for the info. Sounds like you are sitting in a good spot for Fishers to pick you up.

    Have you heard anything else on Fishers? When they are hiring, and if they are selecting only guys with FF Certs? I also heard they want to hire a big number - like at least 10.

    My guess is that they do a joint recruit class as well, so I'd think since the other departments have their guys Fishers must not be too far behind.

    I am one of 10 that was moved foward with Fishers. They are conducting interviews, both chief and panel style, on Sept 13 at which time the background paperwork is also due.

    According to Fishers, 6 medics will be hired from their transfer list and 6 firefighters will be hired from this list. I finished the interview Friday to find out that they plan on hiring 6 off the list this go around with 4 alternates. I am third on the list at this time. The background investigation starts today with a psychological eval and ladder climb still to come.

    Nice. So sounds like you're in you just have to keep your nose clean and have a good psych and background check. Ladder climb is no biggy at all.

    Well the Psychological eval and physical for PERF are completed and it looks like I will be hired by Fishers but am trying not to get excited until I get the official "you're hired" letter which should come just before Christmas. The start date for all depts. is January 21st. This has been something I have been working towards for 4 years and is a dream come true! Now I'm wondering what I need to be doing to prepare for the academy.

    While I still have yet to receive my official "You are hired" letter, I was sent an email to go in and get fitted for my uniforms! I'm getting excited!

    IndyS3 when did you go downtown for your PERF? You get the official letter and get fitted yet or still waiting since last week? January 21st for sure is the official start date they are talking for the academy? Who all department wise is going to be in the academy did you here?

    I went downtown the second week of November for my PERF physical and psych eval. Still waiting on the official letter but have been informed that the academy start date has been pushed back a week to January 27th. Carmel, Fishers, Westfield, and Noblesville are all sending the new recruits through the academy.

    So, I went in a week ago for the fitment of Class B uniforms, PT gear, and boots. At that time, they said that the final offer letter would be to us before Christmas. Well, Christmas came and went with no email. Finally yesterday, I talked to two other candidates who informed me that they had received their letters not by email as we were told, but by snail mail. I was trying hard to stay positive but scared that PERF had not approved me. Fishers eventually returned my call today and told me that they had accidentally sent the letter to my old address and that, yes, I had made it. WOOHOO!!! I start January 27th as a full time firefighter after 4 long years of trying.

    They only told us that EMS training would be first then fire training. They haven't given us any more than that.

    I have not received letter in mail yet but was given the official confirmation via email it's a huge relief to be able to put my two week notices in! Please private message me so that we can exchange email and phone numbers prior to our jan 27 start date, maybe we could get the class together before we start?
