    I have heard from two people on CFD that they are putting one more class thur from our list. I am not very hopefull at this point but I just wanted to share what I heard. Keep hitting the gym if you were close maybe you still have a shot at it.

    CFD HR sent this email to around 100 people (myself included), apparently they don't believe in BCC. Maybe they're going to hire off of the previous list still, because I didn't sit for the latest test.

    Dear Firefighter-EMT Applicant,

    In order to be hired as a Firefighter-EMT with the Chicago Fire Department, you must be in possession of a current Candidate Physical Ability Test (CPAT) card. CFD deems CPAT cards valid for one year from the date of issue. As stated in the CPAT Information Sheet "You will be required to have passed the CPAT less than twelve months prior to starting Fire Academy training."

    If your CPAT card has expired, you must obtain a current valid card . You may renew your status at any licensed CPAT facility. You may also submit your CPAT card via email or in-person.

    Thank you, Chicago Fire Department Human Resources

    Got the same email today. First time ever being contacted by them through email too. I took the new exam and maybe they got my email address from that or something. The email sounds similar to what was received by the guys in the last class prior to being called in for fp. Maybe there's still hope....

    I have heard that the last class was supposed to be 130 and they settled on 60. Maybe they are going to get the remainder of you guys in a class. Fingers crossed for you guys waiting. Get your CPAT cards up to date asap. They don't send those emails out for no reason. Like with everything else, it's quiet then BOOM, it all happens fast. Good luck!!!

    Any emails regarding you keeping your CPAT up to date would be for the 2006 exam. The city isn't even close to processing people from the 2014 exam. The results have to be processed and what not. We took the test in 2006 and I believe the first class went in sometime in 2008. I think there was a class from the 95 list that went in in late 2006 or 2007.

    Did my medical in mid jan. '14. Also unless I figured this wrong, from looking at the posts on here it looks like it was about a month from the cpat reminder to fp. Then about 3 weeks after fp, academy start date.

    Click the mail icon at the top, you'll have to enter the name of the person you want to send to in the form that comes up. Can't figure out what should be the easier way.

    I did my medical in January 2014. Had to go back and redo blood in the summer. Just sent my CPAT to both Ms. Hammond and the human resources email we got haven't heard anything back.
