    Thumbs up Academy

    I absolutely would dedicate my life to getting through that academy should I be lucky enough to be selected. I've been training hard for years in preparation for an academy with any of the previous depts I've applied with. Praying to God this happens for me and all of you guys. About the academy...does chesterfield run the academy at the site we did the physical testing?

    There is a little more than passing the physical and your gear.

    There is the interview process, physic exam, medical exam, probably revisiting the background again and a few other things before you set foot in the academy. You'll receive any gear once you are hired and in the academy. Also any work uniforms will be issued too.

    Any way, Good Luck to those aspiring for this job.

    Once you began the academy, be sure all those in your class are there on graduation day.

    So if they are looking for a July 7th academy it would need to be soon, correct?

    One would like to think so...but then again, everyone thought that it would have been decided at the last meeting!

    Guys I know the waiting sucks but stay positive. We are definitely starting another school, it's just a matter of how many. This is all worth the wait.

    Not wanting to be the person to yell Fire in a crowded theater, but:--------


    See the 9th paragraph about the fire dept. If real estate taxes aren't raised, voted approval to do so, the engine company at station 21 may not happen. Only an ambulance will be quartered there.


    This is not say that they will or will not fill any other vacancies that are on the books now. It is purely a guessing game right now. Hopefully they will hire for these existing vacancies.

    Guys I know it looks like doom and gloom, just ignore speculation and wait for the budget to be passed. Figure worst case they don't staff station 21, we would still be hiring to fill our vacancies.

    Honestly after reading that article, it makes no mention of cutting the recruit class for CFEMS, rather it says that CCPD's budget may be where the cut lies. If any hiring is cut it appears both the BOS and paper believe it will be the PD, but it makes sense since they've had more hiring than CFEMS in the last few years. If anything guys keep your hopes up.
