    Thumbs up Help with a class assignment?

    Hello, I'm in a student firefighter program and have been given the assignment of holding a short interview with a career firefighter on the subject of testing. My current job hours prevent me from stopping by a firehouse during business hours, so I was hoping to find an accomodating individual on the boards. If all else fails, I'll just have to make a phone call into one of the local stations :P

    Anyways, I only need one participant and you can answer on the boards if youd like, or email me at sungkoo8996@hotmail.com

    I'll need your name (or just rank if you'd like), location and fire district, along with answers to the following:

    1. How many tests did you take before aquiring your first firefighting job?

    2. How did you prepare for the testing process?

    3. How did you prepare for the oral boards?

    4. Do you have any advice to an individual taking tests and trying to find a job?

    5. What is the testing/hiring process in your district like?

    6. How did you find this process different from other districts?

    Thats all I need. Hopefully someone out there is bored enough to lend a hand, haha. Hope to hear from someone soon, thanks in advance!!

    Your best bet is to call down to the closest full time FD and see if it is okay for you to come down when you are not working, after all we don't ever close.
