    This does not include the PFANJ Locals. I don't know if they have a list that is readily available. Many departments have dual memberships.

    , from what I understand, Newark, Hackensack and Edison are all very close to each other in pay.

    At any rate, that was wayyyyy of topic, b/c the reply was that FDJC has the second highest pay, he did not say they had the highest.

    I think the better test to take would be North Hudson Regional Fire and Rescue, seeing as they are NOT consent decree, and their still the 3rd largest dept in the state.

    I moved to Jersey City to take the test.

    Sucks, i found out 2 weeks ago I failed the video section of the test Tried my best, guess my answers wern't what they wanted. How did I find out you say? I went to the Newark Armory where they run practice physical tests for newark and east orange applicants, I went to sign in and my name wasn't on the DOP list. I called 2 Monday's ago, gave them my social, and they said i failed that section. Sucks......That video was hard, I do not know how they want you to answer the questions and I even bought the study guide from ergometics to prepare for it weeks in advance, sucks.

    NVetro,

    Very sorry to hear that you failed the 1st part of the test. It was pretty difficult, but they basically just wanted you to choose the best and worst answers out of the 4 choices based on the video and question provided. I felt confident going into the test, I went to http://www.ergometrics.org/firefighter_test.htm and ordered the CD, it costed $25 and was only able to load it 2 times but it was well worth it to me.

    How were you timing on the course at the armory? Chances are we bumped into each other a few times. I'm running 2:56 with vest now, 1st time was 3:26 without vest.. the newark fd trainers there are cool, their motivation to push harder is top notch.

    Mathew,

    The Newark Armory is open only to Newark and East Orange residents. Both Newark and EO have rented the Armory due to its high number of applicants. Jersey City and Elizabeth is also providing practice course runs for its residents at their own facilities. This is a courtesy from the city, not a requirement by DOP.

    They have Newark and EO FD staff at the door taking down names and cross-referencing their check list with the DOP list of applicants that passed the ergometrics, reading, and math test. They won't allow non-residents to run the course...

    Default Got my Notice today

    I got my notice today that I passed the written & cognative test for the entry level fire fighter. I have to do my physical on May 18 @ 10am.

    Couple of questions for anyone who can help me.

    #1 - I currently live in Edison, but I am moving to Elizabeth at the end of the month. What's going to happen to my eligibility & where will I be eligible if I pass all parts of the test?

    #2 - Once I pass my physical, am I certified or how does that work?

    I hope I'm don't sound to ignorant but I basically don't know anything about becoming a firefighter or what's involved with it. I tried going onto the NJDOP website and getting some info but it wasn't exactly what I was looking for as far as information was concerned. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Oh and btw Edison starts there firefighters @ approx. 68K/yr.
