    Default Fishers, IN and Noblesville, IN hiring process

    Has anyone heard back from either Fishers or Noblesville regarding their hiring process since the letters giving you your rank on the list? Fishers recommended 2008 Budget was released on the 5th but I don't see them adding any additional firefighters. Anyone have any more info?

    I was curious myself. I read the recommended 08 budget as well and noticed no additional firefighters. During the Chief's interview with Fishers, he mentioned hiring 12 in 2008, but did not see it on the proposed budget. If anyone has any info, please post. Reading Noblesville's minutes on their website mentioned they were hiring 6 to start in October. And it mentioned station # 7 for 2009 or was to be proposed for the 2009 budget, not sure of which one.

    I was reading on indystar.com that the Noblesville Board agreed to pay a firm to design station 7 and it stated that Chief Gilliam hopes to open it in July 2009. It will be staffed with 12, 6 have already been hired and they budgeted 6 more for 2008 according to the article.

    I still haven't found anywhere as to how many fishers has budgeted for 2008.

    All I could find from their recommended 08 budget was one mechanic for the FD.

    Fishers's budgeting is alittle weird. I used to work for HEPL (the library system in Noblesville and Fishers) - Since Fishers is a township and not a city I've seen some weird budgeting stuff go down.

    So try not to get discouraged guys!

    As for Noblesville: Whats been mentioned Is correct (I believe) mid 09 for new station. 10/08 for new hires. And 6 seems to be the magic number, atleast from all that I've read. . . .

    ALSO MEANT TO ADD:

    Westfield is trying to get approval for 3 new Fire Fighter's I believe (According to a news paper article)

    I'm curious how the annex battle with Geist will turn out. From what I understand, if Fishers wins, they will need to provide better fire service, which means more hires.

    we'll see

    Curious to know if anyone has an update on the Fisher's process, as to how many they are looking to hire and when they may resume the rest of the 2007 process? There website is showing that they will open the process up again in January of 2008 for a new hire list.

    Just curious, I was looking at Noblesville's website under Firefighter training and saw a picture of the recruit class of 2007. Does anyone know if that class if from the 2007 hiring process or a previous one?

    Also, anyone hear anything about Fisher's yet?

    Mray, from what I understand that picture of the 2007 recruit class was from a previous hiring process. They have not yet hired anyone from the 2007 hiring process.

    I only went through Noblesville's, Avon's, and Fisher's processes this year. Just waiting now to hopefully proceed with Fisher's and Noblesville. It looks like nothing will happen with Avon until next year if their budget was approved for new hires.

    Have you heard any thing about Avon being able to hire next year? I was supposed to get hired and then the funding fell through.

    I too was on the list to be hired by Avon. I haven't heard anything about their funding for 2008 either. If you hear of any info will you please pass it on ffindy215?
