    Congrats on getting your app in. I was in the process of applying and in the time it took me to scan in my license and EMT certs the 500 limit was reached. That was around 7:50am. Good luck to ya!

    """The dismissed recruits were allowed to reapply on Monday, but they must compete with the rest of the 500 applicants for the job."""

    interesting, I wonder how many applied??

    Good luck to all

    I had to complete my application from my cell phone because I wasn't home. Thankfully, all of my 'important' information was saved from the application I created the last time LVF&R was hiring (otherwise I'd have been TOTALLY screwed.). I just hope the hiring process moves forward in a 'timely' manner this time, instead of being halted just after the written exam, and we all waited almost a year for the process to continue. Good luck everyone!

    Seems like if there is ever a list to be on, this is the one. Guessing the odds/potential of getting hired off this list is extremely good, provided you have your ducks in a row.

    Got my app in. Congrats and good luck to others that did, they had 500 apps in 24 min!

    I'm curious as to why you believe this is "the list to be on", what have you heard?

    I read that 12 of the 14 recruits who got their graduation cancelled reapplied.

    I think what tactics means is the odds of getting on are the best they've been in (probably) over a decade...only 500 apps were taken. And, with the possibility of roughly 24 recruits, that means one in every 21 applicants will get hired.

    Although the application said 'Firefighter Trainee', I'm hoping that doesn't turn into LVF&R hiring only Medics...time will tell.

    Good luck to everyone....see you all in a little over a month.

    ...by chance do any of you know if LVF&R will be sponsoring the CPAT this time around? Had to go out of state last time.

    Yup exactly. And odds become even a little better than that when you factor in a few things: people who fail the written, fail the CPAT, or turned in an app that won't show up at some point during the process. If 24 are to be hired, really, the odds are way better than 1:21 for those who are prepared and show up through out the entire process. Just the way I see it.....

    Also, I wouldn't be worried too much about only medics getting hired. A medic/lateral academy is starting really soon. And they need firefighters right now more than anything else.

    So add that all up, and it's pretty obvious this is the list to be on.

    For those of you preparing for the 2013 Las Vegas Fire exam, go to the link below for a 600 question exam prep and test taking strategies for the Fire and Police selection (FSI) 10th edition.

    Good luck !!

    Tactics I don't know if what you do qualifies as work.

    Although this may sound slightly obvious, please make the rest of us aware when you (or someone you know) gets the email for the testing date. Should be any day now.

    According to HR, notifications will be sent out this coming week. Am coming from Reno, so I need to make my flight reservations as soon as possible.
