    Default tell me about DENVER.

    Seems like info out there is a little limited for a dept. in such a big city. Is anyone here on the job out there?

    Hows your experience been?
    How big, manpower-wise?
    The pay okay?
    Decent amount of work?

    Im under the impression that with so much to do, year round, and close proximity, people would be three-stooging their way through the doors to get in and have a great job nearby.

    So whaddya say?

    There's a crap load of information about obtaining a career with the Denver Fire Department. Their site is better than those of most cities that I've seen.

    Denver is a great town. Like the other guys said, the website has a lot of info. If your in town, be sure to attend the Dec 4 Career Day. The next academy is tentatively scheduled for March 2008. They'll fill it from the 2006 written test list. I am hearing that testing will open up again early next year.

    Has anyone heard a plan for the next (2008) academy? Myself and a buddy have completed and passed everything prior to the oral boards and Chief interview. We received our letters a couple months ago and have heard nothing since. Any help would be great!!!

    Thanks

    I am hearing interviews will maybe start the week of January 7, 2008. The academy is tentatively scheduled to start March 3, 2008. From what I understand this will be the only academy for 2008 off the 2006 written test.

    I have also passed the background check and I heard interviews will be in January. Does anybody know if you can improve your rank on the list with a good interview?

    Stime33-Where did you hear that the next academy will be the last from 2006? Thanks for your help everyone.
