    Yes in Perrysburg you have to be a medic.

    I am not sure on the number to be hired but we potentially have one or two openings in the next month. There is also plans to hire 2 additional firefighter/paramedics next fiscal year. We will also be staffing a second station in the next 1-2 years.

    Yea, i signed up to take Akron's test. I also just received my results from Elyria. Anyone else take Elyria's? I am curious as to what got people into like the top 15, since I did well but still fell back spots after my interview.

    Any input would be great.
