    Default New Haven CT

    Greetings…. I’m looking for information regarding New Haven CT Fire department. They plan to conduct a test in the near future… I am interested in relocating to the CT area, but I know virtually nothing about New Haven CT…. Other than what there web sit offers… Any information regarding hiring policies, run and fire statistics, shift schedule…and general department policies would be greatly appreciated.

    well, in the past they gave a test - then issued pass or fails- no specific scores- gee why would that be. Stop at any of the stations and talk to the senior guys - they will fill you in - massive minority preference they will tell you.

    Are you a white male that doesn't know someone in the department?
    Even the burger-flippers at McDonald's probably have some McWackers.

    Oh, and just to clarify something here... I'm not knocking the NHFD. I'm knocking the politics behind hiring. It is sick.

    West haven, Milford, Stratford just tested. Forget about City of Bridgeport current hiring list has about 10 Federal lawsuits against it for hiring all minority, Felon, none U.S. citizen they won’t give another test for about ten years from now. New Haven should be opening hiring process soon. City of Stamford is good place to work. 10 more guys are going to start the fire academy in march.

    The next test for New haven fire is supposed to be based on scores. Wether or not the rest is of the process is fair, is up to the next lawsuit.
