    yea I am under the impression that they hire civilian paramedics and then train them to be chicago fire dept. paramedics, and i'm wondering how this process works.

    The term fireparamedic applies to a civilian paramedic hired off of a non-tested list to serve as a single role (on an ambulance) employee. Fireparamedics who took the 1995 entrance exam are eligible to "cross over" meaning they would get FFII training and then be assigned to Als engine companies in a dual role. They often run concurrent firefighter and paramedic academies.

    Smitty is right the only way right now you could be a paramedic and then get trained as a firefighter is if you are already a paramedic working for the city in a single paramedic role and took the 95 exam and passed. Then based on seniortiy and per union contract 10% of every fire class has to be CFD paramedics crossing over. Since the 95 list is still being used to hire off of this is still true. As for the city hiring paramedics someone else here said they do it with pretty good frequency but you already have to be a paramedic prior to being hired. If you are a medic and get hired you had to have taken this most recent test and then wait for your time to come, meanwhile being a single role medic. I dont know when they will be hiring medics next, but if anyone is already a medic and took the test I would try and get hired next time the city opens up for paramedic, as I understand it there is no test just a application list.

    I'm going to assume that everyone that took the test in this thread passed, the reason for this is because if you are smart enough to figure out how to turn a computer on and register for the forums you could pass that test :P.

    Anyways only thing we can do is continue the wait, as much as that sucks.

    I forgot to add...

    I do have a family member in the CFD whom took the '85 test, I talked to him about his thought on this test from what he understands the '06 appilicants will start going to the academy most likely next year, he thinks that there will be one more class from the '95 test.

    However these are just his thought, don't count them as facts.

    The last class of the 95 list will go through in November.

    And the new list will be effective January 07

    Question

    Any other Females on here waiting on CFD as well as I? I haven't heard too much concern from the Ladies about this..............or maybe i'm just one of the few women who really want this.

    I copied and pasted this from someone in the CPD forums:


    A couple of CFD instructors came to the academy to teach today, and during the break, I ask one of the instructors about the results. He stated that the results will be mailed out by the end of Aug or the middle of Sept. Good Luck everyone who took the test.

    Default Info from Personnel office

    I called the Personnel office and asked if they had any idea as to when the written examination results would be available. The woman informed me that the results would be made available in October. No specific date or idea if it will be earlier or later in the month. Thanks for the updated info. guys!
