    What information can you guys give me on this department as a whole. Not just on the hiring info.

    CFD has I believe it's 38 firehouses (39 Engine Companies, 14 Truck Companies, 2 Rescue Companies and 7 Battalions). They ran 85,000 runs in FY '06, expected to reach 90,000 runs in FY '07. There is a minimum staffing of 240 personnel on duty every day. They're on a "modified 24 hour shift, Monday (ON), Tuesday (OFF), Wednesday (ON), Thursday (OFF), Friday (OFF), Saturday (ON), Sunday (OFF), Monday (ON), then the next 4 days are off, then the cycle starts over. All Companies ride with 4 (except Engine 9 which has 5), the 2 Rescue Companies ride with 5. They are planning on opening numerous companies in the near future (next 4-5 years). The expected population of the city is expected to reach 1 million by the year 2010. CFD covers 243 square miles and is growing at a rate of 5% every year. I hope this helps.
