    from what i hear they already had 5 people drop out due to finding another job and failing the chief interview. I think they are doing drug test now. so one through 45 should be in the first class.

    Not sure of anyone dropping, but I think they interviewed alternates just in case. Drug tests/physicals should be complete, class starts the 28th. Good luck to everyone who made it.

    Default St. Louis/ Roommates

    Hey guys, I have spoke with SVFD already, is there anyone who needs roommates, and a place to rent while in the academy? I found a 5 bed room, nice place for $1200/month firefighter owned, and some other options. Let us know, time is flying by!

    Any truth to the rumor that the new firefighters will also have to do time on the ambulance?

    That is a plan/idea that CFD has. That will depend on overall staffing though. But, eventually that will be the concept....rotating on and off a medic unit.

    You probably won't hear anything "credible" about when and how many until they actually get ready to put the next one thru.

    But, it is a matter of "when" not "if" and I would expect sooner than later.

    Used up to number 42. Two that were 40 or below either didn't take the job or didn't pass the physical.

    Default next class

    Just wondering if anybody has heard anything on the next class. The last i heard was july but that was a couple of months ago. I know they had a bunch of racial controversy over the last class, will that affect the test or the hiring process at all. are they planning on keeping the list or throwing it out. If anybody knows anything please keep updating this post i know there is alot of people who check it. as far as i know this is the only place to see whats going on with this list.
    Thanks,
    Brad

    Not true at all........... a few people tried to make a big deal out of it, but fizzled quicker than it was started. People from the outside need to leave this alone and let it die....the rank and file (black and white) are tired of everyone trying to make race an issue about everything we do.....OMFG!!!! did you know we use white toliet paper in all the firehouses!?!?! Somebody call the NAACP!!!!!

    will that affect the test or the hiring process at all.
    NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    are they planning on keeping the list
    YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


    Just wondering if anybody has heard anything on the next class

    Just like anywhere else...its all about the $$$. But we are still way below par. The plan is to have another class ASAP after this one graduates...prob in the 30-40 range again.....how soon?? depends how long it takes to process evryone, plan, assign instructors, etc, etc.

    No problem...more than happy to help. Ive certainly been there, done that, and got the t-shirt....and Ive always appreciated help/advice.


    I would say you might have a shot in the next class, but if I were a bettin man I would say there would definately be a 3rd class off this list.
