    That's not neccasarily true ilffpm.. There are a bunch of us who are only awaiting final processing to start fire class.. Last year we started processing in April and first fire class wasn't until November.. The paramedic list need to do physicals. Backgrounds. Medicals. Etc.. Only time will tell what's next

    From what we have been hearing, the next class will be a medic class then possibly a fire class.

    If that is the case we might have to redo our cpat because it is only good for one year.

    If that's the case we'll be starting over from scratch. If they even continue from the same list and don't offer a new written exam.

    That's a lot of medics to get and up and running in 5 months. Hopefully we'll see another class for us as well soon.

    Went in on Friday. I was one of 4 FF-EMT candidates from the 2006 test. After talking to the other 3, we all did PAT Jan 2010 and had a hiccup in the process since then (missed packet mailing, etc) and were being "caught up" more or less. We were fingerprinted and drug tested. We had all already done our packets and hair tests and CPATs. In addition to us 4, there were roughly 40 Paramedic candidates. We were separated out from them.

    Here is what I heard from people working for the CFD. Medics are the priority. They will likely have an academy for medics in August-October depending on how well things go. Looking to hire "at least 100" because of the shortage.

    FF-EMT is another story. No one there mentioned anything about an Academy and when I asked a few people directly there were very vague answers.

    I hate speculating but there are really only 2 options at this point. 1.) There is another academy in June (as has been rumored) and we'll meet the Medics in their August - October estimated start date for the EMT part (the timing would seem to work out for that) or 2.) There is nothing going on until EMT in August - October. If that is the case it is safe to assume that there won't be an academy this year as the medics are likely to finish around the holiday and nothing will start again before the new year.

    I did hear that there will be another academy before the next written test from more than a few people. Maybe even 2. For the 4 FF-EMT there on Friday, we were told to wait for a call from a background investigator, so I would imagine if we hear from one of them soon, June might be a reality.

    Hope this helps.

    If they're still processing that's good news. My godfather mentioned a couple of weeks ago he's working doubles as they're short. Hopefully lining guys up for background and those of is waiting for medical will gets calls soon.

    There may have been something that came up in your background investigation that had to be approved. I talked to the investigator who handled mine and they didn't meet to approve until mid January.

    For interested observers, could someone briefly review the history of the hiring process you all are in and why it has lasted so long?
