    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.

    That is interesting news and I probably was expected. Has your friend heard anything in regards to a starting date for either class?

    Thanks. I wander if the uncertified candidates like me will get offers here with the first class or if they will go out in the fall.

    I'm with you on this. It seems that there are a variety of backgrounds on here and everyone is on the same phase in the hiring process, or maybe I'm just trying to convince myself that I wont have to wait till the fall if they decide to bring me on.

    Here's what I do know for sure, fire and EMS are broken into two phases per both fire and EMS Capt's from academy, and while they run consecutively they're not necessarily intermingled. Meaning that you do fire first and then EMS or vice versa. Another person at the academy said during the PAT that they thought that the two academy classes would run simultaneously with half doing EMS while the other half did fire and then flip flopping, but they weren't 100%. Suffice it to say there will be folks of all backgrounds, abilities, and certs in however many classes they end up doing. Either way it goes down, we're all on the home stretch, be glad for that and enjoy this little bit of peace before the academy is sorted out and begins. And lastly, I think we're all in for fall or later Academy dates, but that's just my .02.
