    I just received a letter to take the physical agility test. Not sure I'm going to be able to make it though, kind of short notice for me.

    I'm a FF/EMT and received a letter in the mail about the PAT and for it to be signed by my MD. It's too short of a notice and the test is tmw, I unfortunately won't be able to make it.

    There is another round of interviews going on in September. From what I've heard there is already a band that has had interviews. I am wondering if the next round of interviews will be added to that list and divided up into the Bands....or possibly a new list....?

    As of Oct 4th the dept is still processing the background/polygraph information from those applicants that were able to attend the Sept.21st appointment. Once those are done another date will be sent out for those that missed the 21st. Processing will continue through Oct and Nov., maybe Dec. also. Academy mostly likely in beginning of 2014.

    Last I heard was that Jacksonville accepted a safer grant and would be using that to bring on a class in either November or December. I heard they were planning on bringing on around 60 or so sometime before the end of the year. Who knows at this point though.

    It does make sence that they would decide to wait till after the first of the year, if they are still working with people in the hiring process.

    Ya I can't imagine them waiting so long to hire a class? February is when I applied, June is when I was interviewed , and July is when I was banded. Good things come to those who wait though. So keep your record clean of all infractions and stay certifed!

    I just heard they are starting a class around Nov 19 for about 40. A friend of mine got the call. He said they told him most of the class will consist of vet's. There should also be another class starting early next year, I haven't heard of a specific date yet though.

    Are they calling or certified letter in the mail?

    I realize they just had an app process in February, but does anyone know how often they have a process?

    Yessir. I'm guessing you are too ? There's a pretty good chance that their gunna scoop all the medics up. Just sit tight , keep all your certs up and be patient. Definitely call up there like twice a month to keep getting an update on the whole process. The lady is really nice and always answered my questions. I swear I called up there like 2 a month for like 3 months lol.

    From what I've heard, they plan on hiring everyone remaining on the current "band 1" list by mid 2014. One class starting in Jan, one class starting March/April, and the last class maybe around June/July. This is all rumor, but I've heard the same thing from a few good sources. The app process they opened in December is to establish a new list once the current one is expired.

    Well that's awesome news. I called up there today to change my contact info and the lady who answered said that they are definitely having more classes this year but no set dates yet.
