    What's the staffing like?
    4 on engine, 4 on truck?
    Any "bonus" points besides veterans points?
    Thanks again!

    Minimum 4 on all Engines and Hook&Ladders, 6 on the squads.

    Education/experiance might help you a little.

    Ive been getting some PMs regarding city employees getting preference over non-city employees....

    THIS HAS CHANGED!!!!!!!!!!!!


    City employees NO LONGER get hired over non-city employees regardless of their score. They will get 5pts. added to their final score only.

    50/50 hiring (1 black for 1 white) is GONE. Although that was pretty much the demographics of my class.

    Age limit is 18-33. Previously there was not an age cap.

    Bob - One of your guys left to come to our department in early April. I've heard he's doing a good job.

    It's good to hear some of the new guidelines on the test. It used to be nearly impossible to get hired without transferring to the FD from a different city department.

    Yes they do, we still hire EMT's/Medics thru the EMS Division. But, the last time I checked EMT starting pay was pretty crappy.

    ya, know if we could only get residency lifted, we would be doing great!

    I noticed that too. I had one when I tested. I'll have to get back to you on that one.

    The deadline on the Personnel Department web page is listed as June 1, which conflicts with a May 18th deadline I've seen listed elsewhere. Do you know which date is correct?

    The deadline was orginally May 18th,and has been extended to June 1st.

    With the minimum age requirement recently lowered to 18.....they needed to extend the deadline so the young bucks applying could get their high school diplomas in hand so they could apply for the job.

    Just wondering if anybody has gotten any of their information yet or has heard anything? This is the first test I've applied for and am just anxious to hear anything, wanting to make sure I didn't screw up the application or anything somehow:/
