    Besides getting your results back, has anyone heard about the physical or oral boards yet?

    I got my letter today for the phsyical. Word has it class won't start for at least 4 months. My buddy talked to some instructors. First hand second hand whatever. I want it sooner. If you want more info tell me because the class right now isn't doing very well. If anyone has other info please share. Thanks in advance.

    I took the psych on tuesday and taking the medical monday morning. They probably will call and tell us to be there the next day. Thats the way they have been running this so far. I heard the end of the month though. The class will be about thirty people. A lot of people didnt make it through the process so I'm told. Anyway shoot me a line if you hear anything.

    I heard from the chief of training it will be late august. I got a call from CC and they asked me if I had taken my med yet. I told her almost two weeks ago. She said oh and said she would look into it. The system is still so ate up since Katrina. I have been helping with the Leary Foundation building fire houses. Most are still run out of FEMA trailers. They won't be completed for at least another year. Thats NO for you.

    Hey Reznik do you know if NOFD will hold EMT-B cause i know they only require 1st Responder, I think ECA. Just would hate to let it expire or have to keep it up w/ my own money. Cant get anyone in Recruitment to call back guess they are busy w/ CS trying to get this new class started

    I had to take a second psch exam because they told me I was to cautious with my answers. She said I wasn't giving her anything to work with then I told to ask better questions. Anyway they called me on Tuesday and I said I do. She said orientation was the Fifth maybe, supposedly she's sending out a letter but seeing is believing. Well congrats and I'll see you, by the way my first name is Chris.
