    Anyone hear anything about when they are going to start selecting new candidates for the chiefs oral, or if they are going to even hire more for the June academy?

    thanks for the info


    In response to this it is my understanding as others have said that they will take who they want. Last time around I was told it was extremely political and they were getting pressured to fufill affirmative action requirements. As for certs, NB has EMS and all they require of firefighters is to be an MRT as they are 1st responders. I am sure having more can't hurt you, but ya never know. Being a minority and a resident and female I'm sure will only boost your chances in getting into there Dept. Its frustrating to me to bust your *** on the test and oral to not have it ranked and have them pick who they want from the list. I haven't recieved my results yet, hopefully they'll come in the mail today.

    Good Luck
    Cheers

    Mark, it is very political....I have obtained "the list" from an unnamed source...by looking at this list i can tell you they hired the first 4, after that it was scattered all over. In-fact they hired number 129 out of 156. He is not a vet and not even a resident of New Britain... I would say some politics are involved... if your interested in a copy of this list send me a msg

    I believe the list STown is referring to is just a list that is ordered by overall score.


    first four residents and add three in for good favor.
    IIRC, it wasn't the case with residents.

    Default No June School?

    Can you expand on that one a little bit, please ...?

    No June School cause the city ran out of money?

    No June School cause the city thinks they have enough with the cadets who just came on the line?

    I also heard the same about the possibility of no June class. Not sure how credible the source is, but something about the city needing to approve the budget.

    Again, this is just info passed along from others...

    Default No June School...?

    Another possibility could be a lack of enrollment at the CFA...?

    Other than New Britain I can't think of any place hiring recently who would be putting their new people through recruit school. New London and Willimantic wanted pre-certified people. Hartford and New Haven will do their own schools when they get around to hiring.

    Maybe the casinos?

    The CFA's had some small recruit classes before, so I don't really think that's the issue.

    Well I believe Stratford is putting at least 4 in for the next class so people shouldnt be the problem.

    Lack of money and gear didn't stop them last time...

    Has anyone heard about letters going out for another round of interviews? If so how many letters going out and how many are they looking to put on. This would be for the Sept. academy, right?
