    They are located in the largest city in Ohio. It is a city department that has men and women who goe out in big red trucks and put out fires, respond to emergencies and interesting things like that...

    Oh... that wasn't what you were looking for? What kind of a 'scoop' are you asking for then? If you are considering taking the test, my advise is by all means, go take the test. If you do well on the test, then is the time to start asking questions about whether you want to work there or not. Either way, the experience of taking the test will be helpful in your career search since every time you take one, you tend to get better at them.

    the class for this year has been canned. The 5 year plan just came out there are plans to 2 recruit classes each year of about 30 ish per class. The city does need to hire due to the drop program. The city does have plans for i thought it was 4 more stations in the next five years all dependent on $$$$
