    alright cool, guess I'll just keep my fingers crossed. Do you know if most of your class (specially the EMTS) had experience working with another department?

    I got my actual polygraph date on the day of the pre-polygraph. And my polygraph was like 2 months after the pre-polygraph. But I know others had it as soon as like a week or so later.

    I interviewed and was placed in band 1 in December. I have spoken with the recruiter and she says there are 276 candidates in Band 1 and are continuing to add more. If someone knows something different. More info would be much appreciated.

    That sounds about right. I was placed in Band 1 last July/August. They are just adding more to Band 1 with everyone else that goes through the process.

    So with so many people in Band 1 chances of getting picked up for the initial 60+ they needed are probably pretty low??? By now that need has probably been met??? Anyone know how many of the 60+ are filled? How many more classes? Was told that once banded it will be good for 4 years.

    The 60 from the safer grant have been filled. The class that started in Feb was from the safer grant and a class just started this past Monday was from the safer grant also. So that is done. The city says they are still planning on hiring a class later this year. So that will be another 30+ spots if they go through with it.

    How do they determine where you rank on band 1 once you finish your polygraph and everything. I know it's all based on your point total, but it's obvious that many will tie point totals. I'm waiting till next year to be eligible, i was honest with my pre-polygraph, and was suspended for a period of time. It's concerning seeing so many hires already this year...makes me concerned the hiring rate next year and year after will slow. Congrats to all who got picked up. Life long dream to work for the city, at least I have a dept job already though.

    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.
