    Default How Will Your Dept. Suffer?

    Just trying to get some feedback on what your FDs are predicting for this tax reform. Layoffs, station closures, hiring freezes? Name your Dept. and tell us what your hearing. We are in this together, lets talk about it. Stay safe my Florida Brothers.

    I am a non certified candidate at OCFRD. My hiring process is on hold until further notice. I still have to decipher how good or bad are the latest news in reference to tax reform and county budget concerns. Hopefully it is not as bad as it seems. I hope to continue with the hiring process soon. Haven't heard anything yet, but I hope to see the light at the end of the tunnel soon.

    I am a non certified candidate. My hiring process with OCFRD has been put on hold until further notice. I haven't heard when the county will resume the hiring process. It seems that the property tax reform issues are finally moving forward. Hopefully, the effects on my county will not be too bad.

    Hey giga this is not a confirmed report. But as far as MDFR i've been told that their is a complete hire freeze currently in place. (A friend of a friend was scheduled for an orientation and was told it was cancelled) Apparantly they are no longer hiring from the 2005 list (damn it!)

    Can anyone confirm this information?

    I am a brand new fire fighter. I just got certified in June. I also just finished my EMT. Almost everybody around my area is "on a hire freeze." I am just waiting till the July 11th vote to see what I will do.
