    Dose any one know when they make their decisions for the April recruit class? And how many they are expected to have in it?

    My best guess would be that they will begin calling people for the April class around the beginning of March.

    The latest classes have had between 25-30 recruits.

    Good luck.

    What does Fairfax run for shifts? Is Fairfax an expensive place to live?

    I do know that the cost of living in Fairfax is higher than some other places in Va. I also was looking into applying there but I am not sure if it will be worth it to move from Roanoke. If the cost of living is lower than what I think it is... it would be a great opportunity.

    Cost of Living in Fairfax County is HIGH. Many guys have VERY long commutes.

    Here is a link to the 24 hour shift schedule. http://www.co.fairfax.va.us/fr/schedule/
