    Default Norwich Dept

    I was wondering if anyone knew anything about the Norwich
    Dept testing. The last written exam was in Dec of 2002. Any word
    of new testing comming up late this year or early next? Thanks

    Norwich just hired at least two. One from my department (Vernon) and one from Manchester (8th district). I would assume that a new hiring spree would not be in the near future there.

    It could have been Norwich that hired the 6 guys. I just know of two for sure. 3 guys got hired from Vernon...1 to Otis Airforce Base, 1 to New Britain, and 1 to Norwich.

    Its been a good month.

    Ohhhh...yeah...you mean the guy who out of a list of 128 people had the 32nd highest score yet was hired in the first group of 6....

    ...the guy who worked for the CT Fire Academy yet did not have his instructor's cert...

    ...I wonder who that was...


    Congrats to the other guys from Vernon who got hired

    There is no reason to be bashing someone for getting a job as a paid fire fighter. Leave it at that. If you have problems with it, dont go posting stuff on a national board. These are childrens games. He got his dream.

    What about them? There is a reason why he got hired. He may not have scored number one but I think he quals make him an asset to any department. He has impressed our department, as Im sure he will New Britain.
