    It's been hard to stay off here.. The uncertainty has been palpable. Glad it seems to be coming to an end for us.

    I'd like to add that alternates received letters Friday/Saturday as well. Theirs read "congratulations - you've been selected as an ALTERNATE for the November 18th firefighter EMT class"

    If you go back a few hundred pages you'll see that was the case for other classes as well.

    With all due respect, and I sincerely mean that, coming from someone who has their family all but up rooted and moved into the city at the drop of a hat and did not get a letter......I do not know how you could not have some sort of plan in place to relocate your family, especially if you were in one of the first medical sign up sessions. I would truly hate to see someone lucky enough to get the Nov 18 class end up getting removed for any reason

    So I have an odd question, my wife is a notary so I was just gonna have her notarize my paperwork. Is anyone aware of any laws or policies against notarizing paperwork like that for family members ? She's pretty new to it, but is pretty sure there's nothing wrong with it.

    If you are even a little unsure i would play it safe and have someone else do it. Banks usually notarize for free for its members.

    flagged for medical, obviously not in this class since the roster is set and the alternates are picked. hopefully i clear this up quickly and get one of the slots in the next class.

    god bless the lucky '13.

    Question for guys going in for FP tomorrow. Are you guys faxing over that indebtness form ahead of time. On the bottom of the page it says to fax over, but then they tell us to bring in with us for FP.

    My assumption regarding the letter is that we are to bring it and the CFD will be faxing/submitting to revenue to verify, so hopefully you are all smart enough, but make sure you don't owe anything to the city, even you suburban guys that might have a random parking ticket hovering out there. This is the website to search for that:
    https://parkingtickets.cityofchicago...rchTickets.jsp

    As for the notary, it is fine for family or friends to notarize a document for you, legally speaking. The only time it is not allowed would be if they were involved in the transaction for example, you were selling a house to your brother and he notarized the deed.

    See a lot of you guys tomorrow.

    Thanks Dalsh appreciate the help. It took me a while to google it but I did find it and you're right it does say it ok unless it's like your example. See you guys tomorrow.

    Hey Dalsh,

    Regarding parking tickets…..do you think that if a ticket is in the process of being contested that it might hold me up? My sister-in-law got one while driving my van recently, and she's contesting it. So, do you think it would be better to just have it paid off or does it matter since she's contesting it?

    Thanks in advance!
