When they hold a new test and establish a new list, that is when the 2006 pool will be done. Just my opinion
    The sad thing is, the city will do what the city wants to do. And unfortunately it leaves everyone hanging. They've not been known to do things that make sense. The one thing that they are good at is setting themselves up for further litigation. If you look at the big picture, either way they go, they could possibly set themselves up for a lawsuit from one side or another, so what is the best path to take for them? What direction will they go that will do the least amount of financial damage. Ultimately, the city only need to keep their eligibility list for 2 - 4 years as most departments, coast to coast do. There is no transparency with CFD, and that, for everyone is unfortunate.

    However, keep the hopes high, because you just never know.

    But kids with clout, friends of friends who know people, and so on got through regardless if they passed or not.
    Id feel slighted too. They're suing not cause they "failed" rather than to show proof they passed and can pass it again with proper people monitoring it. It's a good leg, and i hope they win.
    I know a number of guys who have family on the job that were in great shape that also failed it. One was a Battalion Chief's son who was fresh off honorable discharge from the Marines; in very good shape. Further illustrates the point of how off-base the PAT process in the city. Not saying you deserve to get on just because of family on the job or clout, just saying that clout really didn't help many either.

    Just read about the letters. Congrats to you guys...hope things keep moving along for you.

    They delivered it to my moms house LOL. I haven't lived there in years. She said I have to report on May 9th for orientation. She did have to sign for the letter. I will know more when I get home.

    Like above, kept my moms address as current address as i was still living at home at the time i tested. Now sitting in her driveway waiting for the mail key to be dropped off.....the suspense is killing me.

    Naturally the one day i don't bring my keys to her place i need them the most.....

    Does it have to be dropped off in person like the interest cards, or do you just show up for the orientation? Still waiting here, I'm part of the April 2010 PAT group. Got my fingers crossed.

    Looks like some people here filed the address change and the city still screwed up and sent out to old addresses. I'm calling tomorrow to make sure my info was changed competently.

    So it seems as if roughly half the people got letters today any 2009 pat people get letters? I know of a couple besides me that didn't also some 2010 pat people that didn't. So no rhyme or reason that I can discern. Im hoping its a mail thing and the rest of us get em tommorow.
