    bugsy i was in the medic room at work at northwest community hospital and they had the "CFD run for the kids" poster up and it had the union phone number on there. Would they give out info like that in your opinion?

    Default 2006 processing

    They processed over 300+ for the last 1995 group but only had a class for 75 (You might have heard this story mentioned on this site, yuch, yuch). So they will start processing 400, the ones ahead in the processing SHOULD get called first, especially since this will probably be a rush job. The rest of that group will be called later. So, if you have a lower #, you should be in the 1st class. Good luck.

    They have to have the percentage of vets that took the written test in each class. They said this around test time. (As apposed to just adding 5 points to the test score since scores don't matter) Just something to factor in if you're a low number. I'm in the eight thousands so I'm not exactly anxious.

    So not to change the subject from our possibly good news here with letters and even a possible academy Sept. area but still when it comes to to physical agility tests for the city what are we looking at? What are we looking at physical wise in the academy and not to limit it just to physically wise but what are we all looking at in the academy? i plan on doing a little more research tonight myself just haven't had the time and could be useful for everyone to add what we know... alright

    well good luck everyone

    i talked to a dispatcher at work who is a CFD medic and he said that he was told that the fire department went to request funding for a september class and they got it. also just for the sake of asking i asked him if he heard anything other than them going in the order of the random number you were given and he said that that is the way he was told they were doing it. so i guess number 1-400 are getting a letter possibly tomorrow.

    Default Minor correction

    My buddy told me today that the letters sent out are in numerical order. He told me that it was between 400 and 500 letters not just 400. It's a least 400 and possibly up to 500 he was told. I'm going over to his house right now and I'll see if there is any new info to report.

    Default physical fitness test

    TO all:

    If you do some research in the city of chicago web site you should find information regarding the PT test. The company handeling the testing is trying to compare if the job of a firefighter has changed since the 95 entrance exam. If they find possible changes in the job tasks they will change the PT test to reflect the current job of a chicago firefighter. If they find that there are no major changes in the job they will keep the current PT test.

    There would be no logical reason for them not to start at #1 if you think about it, its already random, why add another random factor into an already random process.

    Nothing was in the mailbox today, I've heard from a reliable source that they are going to use the rest of the old list, but as we all know that could be b.s. as well. What bothers me is that other than what Langford said in the paper I can't find any evidence that says the City, Law Department, City Council, etc. decided one way or the other on this matter. Speaking from past experience, I've always gotten my letters on Friday, not saying there is anything there, just speaking from what I have experienced in the past. So, if you didn't get anything by now, it will be next week...

    P.S. Don't Flame me, I'm just saying what I know, none of this us vs. them ****...

    that's good to hear but i would think if they sent them thursday afternoon they would be in the mailboxes of local guys no?
