    does anyone have any idea what the PAT consists of? They didn't include that information.

    Yea they did. There is a video you can watch. Its a test from California. Im having a ton of questions that it didnt answer. How many swings for the ventilation, how far of a hose drag, victim drag etc.

    Seems a lot for 10 minutes especially if its a continuous timing like the CPAT. Either way, im going to be doing some time trials at my station on monday and see what we got.

    I have a few questions as well....expecially why the interview should last an hour and a half? Ive never sat in an interview that long. Does anyone know of the format regarding interview? B-pad, regular panel, situational?

    I heard the interview is very formal. Also, they may be incorporating a wait time plus several papers to fill out for the background check if you move on.

    That's James Island, which is part of Charleston County, not the City of Charleston. When I worked Medic 4 on the Island, the James Island guys looked pretty happy and upbeat, Smiley and the gang. They didn't appear to be particularly busy, and some guys would work 72 hrs straight, which was no problem, since they didn't get up at night too much. That was in 2008, though.

    James Island is right outside of the city, just north of Folly Beach.

    Thanks for the info. Do you think it would be particularly difficult for a Medic to get hired on? I haven't got the slightest clue what the market is like up in SC, I live down in FL at the moment.

    I have done it before, it's also called the biddle, its used by a few southern california fire departments. It is harder than the CPAT. The hardest event in my opinion is the hose hoist at the end.

    Did you have the same time limit? And did you make it under time?
