    From what I have been told, Band 1 is band 1. The points you earn are just for placing you in Band 1 or 2. Once you are in a Band, the chief picks "randomly" from Band 1 to fill classes. Everyone in Band 1 is considered equal for hiring.

    I'm not sure I would believe totally into band 1 is band 1 because they have had separate military vet and paramedic classes.

    From what I've been told they let you know about 2 months prior. But I don't know how accurate that is.

    I know of two people who have been called for July's class already. I have heard some people say July's class is full and other say July isn't full yet.

    That is correct, and everyone who is in the August class has been contacted. They have orientation this Friday from what I've heard.

    Does anybody know of any future recruit classes coming up? I was told by someone on jfrd that they would be hiring another 60 by the end of the year, one class being in November. Can anybody clarify that or know anything? Thanks

    I've also heard from a few sources, there will be a November class as well. There are over 300 people in the DROP program between now and 2017. So as long as the budget allows, the hirings will continue. The new budget has to be voted on and finalzed in October, and that should determine the future hirings.
