    Default tough to get a job in STL

    I know the market isn't great in STL. The union is one of the better ways to get a job, and with all of the slamming of fire districs in the paper this week, I don't know if departments will be eager to increse thier manpower. I do know that working as a medic with a busy abmulance service is also a good way to get your foot in the door, especially in North STL county. Christian Hospital has turned out a lot of FF/EMTs and Medics. If you already work there, I probably know you, but if not, it is a grat place for experience and to get to know a lot of fire department people.

    Has anyone here heard if/when the city is gonna put on a proby class??? Im pretty high on their list...im trying to figure out if/when Ill get called....

    ...Im not a paramedic so I can't get on in the county....doesnt sound like anyone will be able to antime soon. I have a friend who is a Capt. on a county FD.....5 years ago he claimed he was making 6 figures!! Ive read the Dispatch online, and all the bad press the they make too much...I say good for them! Im on a career dept. in NW IN and I know that no one in the state of Indiana makes even close to that! We should all be making those paychecks!

    Default city academy class

    I just heard from an x-city medic that there is going to be a class soon. I don't know what he meant by soon, but I would guess in the next couple months. In the ctiy you have to be an EMT, so that cuts a lot of applicants out that haven't passed their National Regitry EMT test. Anyway call the STL county fire academy also 314-889-8670 they are starting a new class in a week or two and I don't know if it was full. Good luck
