    Its not really similar to the CPAT. You do go station to station and are timed. Its at their training tower and consists of 9 stations. You're given 20 minutes to complete the course and will need to pace yourself and take your time at each station and pay attention to your technique.

    Not as much as I was hoping for but hey anything helps

    I was fired from DeKalb approximately 2 decades ago. Excellent division, nation is just not run very well. I would say this would not be the most constant job at enough time. I question they are even choosing.

    Were you fired because you can't read or write in English?

    The PAT consists of several events. It's been a minute since I've had to do it or watch it, but here's what I can remember:

    -Approximately 200 lb. dummy drag, 50 ft. down, around a cone, 50 ft. back, put it down.
    -20? axe strikes on a hard rubber pad
    -10? full turns of a hydrant wrench on a hydrant. VERY easy to turn, as it's a prop, not a functional hydrant.
    -Dry hose section drag, 50 ft. down and back.
    -Walk about 100 feet, take a roof ladder down off a rack, touch it to the ground, place it back on the rack.
    -Pick up a hose pack, carry it to the 4th floor of the tower, set it down.
    -Proceed to the 5th floor, pull a rolled section of hose up to the 5th floor and over the rail using a rope.
    -Proceed to the 7th floor (roof), wave over the edge.
    -Go back to the 4th floor, pick up the hose pack, take it to the bottom, drop it.
    -Pull the starting rope on a prop saw 5 times, pick up the saw, use the saw to push down against a weight, set the saw down.

    You're done when the saw gets set down.

    I don't remember what the max time is.

    Thanks for the info! do you know if it is just pass/fail or are you ranked based on time?

    When I did it, there was a max time, either 12 or 15 minutes, I can't remember. I think 8-10 minutes is a good time, and I'm sure they rank the performance and consider it with all other qualifying factors for employment.

    I forgot to mention that you're wearing work gloves and an SCBA (no facepiece, just the pack).

    Unknown on the starting pay, but if you did a little research I'm sure you could find it.

    We have a liberty day every 9th shift.

    I got a time of 7:29. The guy from HR said he would let us know in 3-4 weeks on application status and the next step. They said they only did the PAT for 4 days and invited 40 each day so the group is thinning out. We had 27 people show up today. What was y'all's time on the PAT?
