    So, because of the EMT thing I went and applied to that, it said that the application wouldn't close until May. Going on the Phila.gov website now shows that the EMT application has been closed, NOT completed as my firefighter application is. Does this mean that are re-considering or what?

    Yeah, I submitted it, but now it says it's "closed" and not completed. I submitted it several days ago, before the 25th.

    I called HR on Friday and was told the list would be out very soon. I also called the PFD about the rumor of the hiring process being put on hold. I was told the rumor was not correct and to just have patience. The fire department is on its own time and trying to predict their movements or motives it like playing the lottery. Just relax and enjoy life, if it's supposed to happen, it will. If not, then there will be another time.

    Just heard that the city won and the EMTs will get hired. Good try by the union but the city will do what they want. It's just waiting game from here on out my friends.

    If you got your app in before the 25th...you have until may 25th to get in all your supporting paperwork...licenses and certs..etc.

    thanks man...i hope i stay there..i thought i would drop a bit with appeals for points..but i haven't heard anything about an updated list at this point...keeping my fingers cross..i'm older and don't know how many years i have to wait for this job! i figured if you hit around 400-450..you could be good..figuring those that would lose interest..get bounced for weight and other stuff..thanks again!

    you guys have to remember, just because someone places well on the list, does not mean they are guaranteed a job. people will be eliminated because of physicals, background discrepancies, and certainly during interviews. if you dont interview well, they wont offer you a job. also im sure there will be people who tested but have since moved on, taken other jobs, lost interest, etc...

    You guys see they are ending the brownouts? Saw it on the news. That has to be good news for us.

    Welp fellows this could be good new in with hiring new firefighters. Hopefully with all the firefighters retiring and this news, maybe 3 classes can be hired off this list. Heck this as already been a roller coaster of emotions for me and im guessing its going to be like this for 2 more years until everything is said and done. Well best of luck to everyone out there attempting to do a lifelong dream.

    As big as 50 members being promoted sounds, only eleven were actually firefighters moving up to Lieutenant. The rest are EMS officers or were already fire officers. I doubt eleven firefighters being promoted will change things that much.

    i didnt mean to insinuate that this would change anything or open up more spots...just passing along the news and congratulations to those promoted.

    Don't expect anything until at least next November. The threads pretty much going in hibernation mode.
