    Do you need a Michigan drivers license at time of application or at time of appointment?

    Geez, that's the cheapest CPAT cost I've ever seen outside of ones that you get for free when you test with certain departments. I just shelled out $125 for mine last time.
    Nothing is as unimpressive as someone who is unwilling to learn.

    I'm pretty sure you need a valid drivers license at time of hire and then a michigan license when you get to the academy. You will be able to find out more by contacting human resources.

    Spoke to a man from HR yesterday and says we are hiring up to 90 firefighters off of this list

    Does Michigan accept NREMT? How long does Detroits list stay active? Is there an area that might expand more on the testing process, dates for the written etc.?

    I'm guessing Michigan accepts it since I had to take NREMT and NREMT-P here. List used to stay active for 2 years but hiring has been so sporadic I wouldn't count on anything. I am not sure what you are asking in your last question. The test most likely will only be offered in Detroit, but if a company is hired it is possible dates will be offered elsewhere. We know as much as you. Just read the ad and apply for the job if you are interested.

    You'll see 30 fires a week and a better chance of seeing a pink slip

    Most places people apply for jobs hold the test in the city of application. We have never had an online application, so anything is possible. There might be a testing company involved where the test can be taken elsewhere, but I doubt it. Good Luck if you decide to apply

    Just an FYI to all of you that thought you were applying to Detroit Monday .... you're not. Fire Commish Don Austin is really making me question if he ever really intended to try to help the DFD. Read about it here http://http://motorcitymuckraker.com...sourcing-plan/

    Where is the bankruptcy issues at? Is the job even safe to take with the fiscal irresponsibility of the city? It would be cool to fight a lot of fire but I can't see testing that was the first Metropolitan city to declare bankruptcy.

    are emt's and residents gonna get hiring preference? in the notice of exam it states hiring may not be done in scoring order and it will be banded on 100-65 being passing and anything below fail, looks like a way for them to pick and choose, especially with them saying emt is a huge bonus. does a non emt HONESTLY even have a chance?
