    No idea on either of the last two questions. No idea on start date. I just hope it's soon, that the people they hire aren't idiots, and that the first group is ready to go with a minimum of training.

    From my understanding, this 1st class will consist of 25 and there are talks but no concrete plans as to when or if there is going to be a 2nd class as of now.

    I just got a notification today that they're accepting apps for Fire/Medics through 9/21. You must hold a GA EMT-P to be considered. I'm not in that predicament, but if it applies to you, it looks like a great opportunity. http://agency.governmentjobs.com/dekalbga/default.cfm

    Hey guys I got a question for any of the Dekalb recruits that made it to the academy and/or any Dekalb members.. I just had my pre-employment physical/drug screening on this past Thursday and HR told me that my start date was November 4th and asked if I accepted the salary of Firefighter I.. I said yes of course but I am wondering if that means I got the job or is there an actual sit down with the job offer? Don't really know what to expect.

    do they send an email after your results from the pre employment physical come through ? I got a call from HR with a verbal offer of the starting salary and I accepted along with the start date of November 4th

    I had my physical last Tuesday and also accepted the offer from HR. They said they would send an official offer letter once they get the results from the physical. I was told yesterday that it would be today or tommorow.

    Default Expiration Date

    How long is this most recent list good for? Also, I found this article in the AJC. Looks like quite a few firefighters will be hired in the upcoming years.

    Any word on when DeKalb will hire more firefighters? Read the 2014 budget and looks promising!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't believe the budget is voted upon until mid to late February. The recommended budget has been released and calls for an enhancement of public safety. I expect something in early March possibly. Maybe they will draw from last years list? Anyone know how long that list is good for?
