    I am on the most recent Minneapolis Fire list. Patience..such a virtue. I plan on applying depending on hearing from MFD.

    If you took the physical. you'll probably get a letter or email with your overall score. Then, get comfortable, and wait.

    I did take the physical.
    Just wondering if any one has heard about numbers, like how many and when they will be taking new guys or how long this new list will stay active.

    Last test was 2010, so I'm guessing this one will last another 4-5 years. Although, the number of applicants and the number of applicants who completed this 2014 test is lower than 2010.

    An academy from the 2010 list graduated last month, so I'm thinking they are preparing for the next one, which probably involves coordinating, planning and finding instructors and prepping staff, not to mention the whole interviewing part....or the aren't in a big hurry to do that all over again so soon and things will be on hold...

    Got an email yesterday to set up an interview and fill out the background check paperwork.

    Heres what the letter says:

    "City of Saint Paul Firefighter/EMT Candidate:

    The Saint Paul Fire Department is prepared to select candidates for the 2015 Spring Firefighter Academy which is tentatively scheduled to begin on April 6, 2015. The Saint Paul Fire Department has received a certified list of eligible candidates from our Human Resources Department. These are the individuals eligible for interview based on Civil Service Rule 8. Your name is on that list."

    That is surprising... My overall score was 110. So it looks like they sent out invitations to half the list? There must be a lot of people without EMT that got passed over if they went down that far.

    I know, there has to be something going on.
    At that meeting it seems like there was a lot of guys from WI and other states that didn't have MN EMT cert, that might be part of it.
    Who knows.

    Good luck.

    Yeah, Im a WI guy but I have my NREMT, so I got it easily. My buddy is an NREMT-P and scored 100 overall and didnt get an interview...

    Good luck to you as well.

    Post ?

    I would like to know what criteria they use to put out for interviews. If AFD2014 was really in the 95 band, then that follows nothing that they said at the informational meeting. I guess that's a good thing for those of us at the top of the list unless you just got passed over like it looks like I did. It's confusing. Good luck to all that did. Hope to see you in the future.

    Yeah I don't get it either. Scored 100, medic, 4plus years with a big career dept, degree, military, great time on my physical agility. So I'm not sure what they said in the info session is how it appears to have played out.

    As I recall, didn't they say they were taking approximately the top 80 or so for the first round of interviews? It doesn't make sense why someone who is qualified to all of their requirements would get passed over. It almost appears that our rank isn't relevant... I don't see how they can pull from the 95 band and not pull from the 100 band if you are qualified.

    UPC, did you get an interview?
