    50 EMS/50 Fire is right. Been studying my @$$ off. Just coming off of Medic school, so I'm hoping that might give me an edge. Heard they're looking to hire 10 right out of the gate, then 1 to 1 after that based on SAFER Grant.

    Test went really well for me today! Was talking to a kid who said the passing score a few years ago was like a 65... i wouldn't believe it was that low. Felt like i did amazing today so hoping to see i made it to the next step! good luck to anyone who took it as well

    Passing score last test was 68. BUT there were at least 2000 people at that test. I believe the bar will a little higher this go around because there were only around 900 testing. I bet passing will be closer to 70-75!

    But yes, I agree I feel very confident I'll be going on to FFST also!

    Congrats brother! Me too! Although I know several guys who didn't pass and thought they did well, so I am VERY curious about my score! Wish I knew where I stood. Can't wait for the FFST

    Dunno, brother but I heard the curve was set at 72...so I would guess maybe 10-15% would be moving on. Probably around 100. That's just a guess. About half the guys I know didn't pass.

    That would be amazing(for us at least) do you know anything about the FFST? Like how they run the patient assessment? Plus the 9min cap for the search for a victim is fast(so maybe the victim isn't that far into the building)? just thinking about things like that.. anything will help!
