    Making sure everyone still visits the forum. I was hoping to get called this month for the BI, but I guess they may be waiting for the women like Shadez said.
    Nothing like starting a Friday with a lil' ball busting!

    I should have known.

    Haha!!! Yea I had my doubts. I was wondering why you didn't post that they called to schedule a visit or anything for tht matter. I told my wife and even she got excited. She said you were wrong for doing that. Lol

    I do think they're waiting for the women to get to a certain point before they start calling for BI's.

    Roche17, I just asked my roommate who was in the Aug 17, 2009 class, and he said that they just give you the actually holiday off. They got Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years Day off. He also said that even though you are off from the actual academy, that they had them all do a 5K Turkey trot on thanksgiving morning, and built bikes for poor kids at night after the academy for kids on Christmas morning.

    I haven't heard a thing. Seems plausible that we are in a holding pattern until the city gets their numbers. Just speculation of course. We still have time from now until the projected academy start date. So hopefully we hear soon.

IDK tho, all seems like the usual HURRY UP AND WAIT that a handful of us have done since JANUARY 2009!!!!! Can't believe it's gonna be FIVE F U C K I N G years since I got my INITIAL interest card. Should be coming up on my 4 year CFD anniversary too, stupid budget. UGH! Whatever. Enjoy ur weekend boys. Off to a 3 day bachelor party in northern wisconsin....paintballing, white water rafting, cabins and strippers.....cant go wrong there. =)
    Have fun! I was just in Minocqua a few weeks ago. Great fishing. I don't think I would want to see any strippers from there. Lol.

    anyone have any idea on how these cpat tests are coming along?

    a friend of mine said he was working there one day and it was pretty ugly. he said a bunch of the girls couldnt even pick up the sledge hammer. He said people were just walking off the test without finishing. I believe the day he was there was just trial runs though

    curious if people are taking the test yet and how they are coming along

    Last time through processing Ms Hammond told everyone that had turned in their CPAT cards already to expect calls within the month, so that time frame has passed, but probably to be expected with what we all have become accustomed to in this process. The deadline for CPAT was initially 8/1, but they were also supposed to sign people up that first day, which didn't happen, so they moved the CPAT deadline back until 9/1. I'm not saying they're not waiting on the girls, but keep in mind the girls have until 12/1, so not really sure why they would be waiting on the girls, but again, who the hell knows.

    Couldn't pick up the sledge, that's pretty wild if that's true....it's friggin 12 pounds! Good luck with the dummy!

    Anyone have any clue how many of the March 2012 firefighters are still around? How many even graduated the academy? Just thought of it, b/c I was looking at the minutes from the most recent pension meeting and saw some refunds to some FF discharged from that class and was just curious if there were numerous gone or if those guys discharged were in the minority (no pun intended).

    The CPAT was not Easy, I am glad I went and took it on my own. I had to take it in Wisconsin, but glad it is done. The women that are taking the CPAT and having a tough time can thank those women that started the current lawsuit. In a way I wish we had to do the CPAT back in 2009 rather than the joke of a physical that we all took.
    I would imagine we will start getting calls this week or next for background checks. I had my background check 4 years ago this month, but because of the "other" lawsuit I am still waiting to get on this job. Good luck, hope to hear that backgrounds are starting soon.
