    Was just reading through the minutes from last nights commissioners meeting. They mentioned the process, but made it sound like the timeline is dependent upon SAFER issuance. Hopefully more will come out at the next meeting. Congrats to y'all! I feel good about my rank as well, so hopefully we will meet each other soon when starting at SNO1!

    I didn't test and don't want to put a buzzkill on anyone but talked to a bud of mine who works up there and he said that 10 more of their 15-18 spots are going to be filled by laterals instead of entry as they originally thought would happen. He also said the SAFER isn't looking promising. So it still leaves a few openings but not nearly as many as they thought they'd have for this list initially at least

    I wonder if they plan on testing for laterals now

    Anyone have any updates? Are they maintaining two separate lists? Civilian/Veteran

    There is definitely a 50/50 split and two lists. I have also been informed that 10 lateral firefighters will fill the current openings but keep in mind, this is not from an official source and don't quote me on this.

    It looks like they are only accepting laterals from those who are currently working in snohomish county. Hopefully there will be some entry level spots left to fill. Also, if they are keeping two entry level lists (veteran/civilian), could there conceivably be duplicate rankings? I.e. if I'm #5 on one list is there also a #5 on the other list? I know any answer will be speculation but I cant figure out how their whole process works.

    I am currently on the civilian list, from what I have been told there are duplicate rankings. I am only a few spots lower than you, and i was told that lets say they are hiring 10 new hires, it would be 5 from the veteran and 5 from the civilian. Don't quote me on that, but that is what I was able to gather from the HR department.

    A friend of mine is good pals with a higher up guy there. Word is they have 5 spots reserved in the August state academy and the rest of their openings (12-14) are being filled with laterals.

    Any idea if the laterals being hired will come off the initial list and or will anyone with fire certs and experience will be considered for the 12-14 positions?

    As far as I understand they will come from the list of laterals they already have and possibly the additional laterals from Snohomish county they just opened up to

    They only have 5 spots in August and that academy is full, so they can't add anymore for that even if they wanted. I imagine those 5 would be 2 civ and 3 military, but that's entirely conjecture
