    Capt as always your VA knowledge is great. I'm assuming that if you don't have EMT-B they'll train you but the likelihood of being hired without it is going to be the vital factor.

    They put you through the academy.. It doesn't matter what you have or what you don't have they'll hire you. This is a very large department lots of room for personal and professional growth, they are serious about taking care of their firefighters and give them plenty of opportunities to grow. If you're looking for a well paying firefighting job with excellent benefits, this is the place to go.

    If you don't have your Va EMT they will put you through EMT class prior to starting recruit school. Last recruit school had some people with no prior experience.

    ALS is part of the department. Some engines, trucks, and ambulances are ALS, depending on the department needs.

    Engine and Trucks all ride with a minimum of three, although selected engines are dedicated four-person minimum. Ambulances ride with two.

    The stations and equipment are all in good repair, although some of them are older (Companies 1, 5, 6, 8, 10, and 12 come to mind).

    Companies 6 & 10 are all-volunteer.

    I deal with CFEMS routinely through my part-time job, and I've found that for the most part, the career/volunteer relationship is solid. This is a very professional department.

    All career Engines (19 of them) are ALS. As far as career/volunteer relationships, it depends on the person. Chesterfield has become a career dept that has some volunteers. For a volunteer ambulance or Engine to be In service they have to be staffed in quarters, and they have to follow the same rules as the career side. Currently there are some 4 man engines that are staffed through a safer grant, that will end in July then all engines/trucks will have a crew of 3.

    Anyone that registered to come take the written test in a few weeks, you will have good odds. A below average number of people registered.

    Correct. Per the website, 80 and above take the physical. Not everyone who takes the physical will be called for an interview.

    Bad news guys, I called HR today and they confirmed what I thought. If you have an 80 or above you passed, but they haven't determined the cut-off score for a physical call back. Best of luck with you're scores fellas.
