    So I've been fighting the urge to get on here today to keep from driving myself crazy. No sooner than I get home and get in the shower the phone rings. iPhone in the shower doesn't work. Missed the call. Called the number back, unassigned number "please hang up and try again". Then 5 minutes later my pos phone finally gives me the VM. Long story short. Called him back, and I made it through to the background phase.

    What does that all entail? A thorough screening from the department physician and a drug screen

    Most likely poked, prodded, and someone else's fingerprints on our balls. Nothing exciting I'm sure.

    Congrats brotha, glad to hear you got a call. I'm sure it was a huge stress reliever. Just a little heads up, one of my references got a call today, but I think it was from the company that does the backgrounds and not DCFR.

    Has anyone received their results on the background and moved on to the physical?

    Not yet. I doubt they've received my hard copies yet though.

    My son got a call early last week and has submitted his paperwork for the background checks. His references have also been contacted. No Physical date yet.

    Was it personal or previous employers or both they contacted?

    For any of you that have been contacted by HR are any of you EMT Basic, I, A or Paramedic? Trying to see if they are grouping us by EMT for a class vs. none or it will be a mix? I have my NR Intermediate and has taken the bridge course for Advanced. I can take my Registry at anytime.

    I'm a paramedic. I don't think there's any rhyme or reason or pattern that any of us are gonna figure out.

    I heard from a friend, who talked with Brian, that they are only hiring certified for the summer class.
