    I'm a Jan 2010 guy and still haven't heard anything from the city. On CFDmedic there is a rumor of a 7/1 or 7/16 class for the fireside. On fireside chat there has been a rumor of guys crossing over being asked to come to the academy early to "tutor" the 111-club so they can pass EMT. Also, contract negotiations supposedly start today. I think this negotiation will determine our fate. I haven't heard or seen anything about a whole new test though since that article earlier this month.

    No, they were talking about cross-overs. Every fireside class needs a certain percentage(10?) of cross-overs from the medic list. So the 7/1-7/16 rumor is a fire class.

    im not trying to argue with you but i just reread it and the way i understand it is they have crossovers going in the lawsuit class thus opening up positions on the single role medic side like a class of 50 of them. If they were gonna do a july class for us we would have heard something by now, we got contacted in late jan of 11 for that supposed apr 11 class which never happened. i mean that would be awesome if we got in in july i doubt it though.

    I'm not trying to argue either. That was just how I interpreted that. I didn't think they were doing cross-overs with the 111. I hope your class does go through. I know I'm at least one or two classes after that.

    There are cross-overs going with the 111. A medic class will be going in in July the last I was told. Possibly another before the end of the year.

    The letter should contain your name, birthdate, SSN and then your old address and the new address.
    That zip code is 60602 and not 60638. I see Dalsh is a fellow Garfield Ridger. Hahaha Hello neighbor.

    Spoke with my source last night and they told me the same. There will be some medic guys joining the 111 and there still is a chance another class kicks off late August/ early September

    was down at fire academy south off clinton to change my address and they said there should be an academy class before the end of the year i also stopped by quinn since i had time to kill and an instructor there said rumor is a class after the lawsuit class. They all said nothing is set in stone so i wouldnt get our hopes up knowing our luck lol. hopefully it comes true and i/we get in.

    According to fireside chat...LT.s are getting promoted too.
    Guess I was given some misinformation

    Fella I was talking to didn't say no LT.s gwere getting promoted, he said HE wasn't being promoted to LT.

    Not sure when the group of us went in for our second background check, but I know it was 2011. Anyone that went down remember the date?
    Being as how it has been at least 8-9 months, I'm expecting that if we were to be called again, it would prob be for another background check since it's been so long since the last one. Not sure if another medical would be needed, but assuming another medical would be needed, including the, at least 2 week notice for a current job, I would think we would need to start hearing something about 2 months before a class would start.
