I am assuming you applied for the fire medic since you applied several months ago. I just received a letter in the mail today telling me to be there for eight hours of testing including a physical agility on Feb 17th, a Saturday. Too bad its too short of notice for me to be able to make it, I was pretty excited to go but can't get time off work that quick. My roomate got his letter to today and can't make it either, so that's better odds for you.
