    The word is there will be a 2nd class off this list but unknown when the second class would start. They won't run two classes at the sametime, so I would guess late spring early summer for 2nd class.

    Default second class

    So would the people on the list still have to do the testing over again or would they just skip all that and go directly to contacting you for physical?

    So got an E-Mail from my BI, my process is still ongoing hope others have heard things, but this looks promising to firewacker's rumor.

    if they hire a second school of this list you would not have to retest, you would go on to physicals

    Default Certs

    DJ I also do not have any certs. I believe it depends on who you talk to on that subject. I've heard some people say they want you to have a clean slate w/ no bad habits that hey would have to break you of. Then again I have heard that if you have emt cert it is a + because most are switching to emt/firefighter rather than just firefighter. I also read on a previous thread that they did one school in which none of the candidates had any prior certs or experience. If I had to guess in this case they are looking for people with EMT. Just waiting and praying for something good.

    Default Eligibility List Letter

    Just received a letter stating I have successfully passed the panel interview and background processes and have been put on an eligibility list for a anticipated summer 2014 class. It says the class has not yet been approved however if it does to have updated drivers record/background/shot records ect. Also states they will be sending workout info to make sure your prepared for the academy should you be selected. Anyone else receive this?

    Default eligibility list

    This is the first time I've been placed on an eligibility list. Hopefully that means we will be greatly considered if the class gets approved. The letter made it sound like they would be choosing from the leftover people that didn't get chosen last class. Congrats to you guys also. Would really be nice to have all of us that are on here anxiously waiting and hoping to all get in. Anyone have any experience with this eligibility list stuff? Hoping it means we will be greatly considered if the class is approved. This has been quite a roller coaster of a ride for me. Still hoping for the best.

    Budget folks have cut out a new house that was suppose to be built this year. It may affect the next class and it may not too.

    But maybe they held up on building the house because they didn't have the staffing to meet it and that this class will do just that allowing a house built in a few years down the line plus the budget was new guys or new house? I say this because my boy who is in now seems pretty confident for a June/July class.
