    Hi Jimmy,
    I live in Hebron but work in West Hartford Ladder 3. I started my career in Southington and left after 4+ years to go to West Hartford (better pay & bennifits). -Keith

    Default So you aren't going to apply anyway?

    SGNL50 are you waiting for your medic to apply to a career department, or have you tested around here already?

    I've been sort of half *** over the past year or so. I had been out of the state and our of the country untill Jan of 2003. I just applied for Willimantic and I interviewed in for East Haddam a few weeks ago. Seeing as I live so close to East Hartford and Manchester I would like to be able to apply to both. Plus I work with EHFD with Signal 50.

    Stay Well, Stay Safe

    I would say most likely they will send new hires of to recruit school. As far as the number of new hires Im not sure. There was talk of Hartford hiring but as I hear now. They will be a hiring freeze for sometime.
