    Default Clark County, NV

    Has any body else out there been offered a job from Clark County, NV? I'm from Michigan and was told I would be attending their second academy, and that more info would be available the first week of Dec. and I've heard nothing yet. I've called the head lady that is supposedly in charge and can never get through to get any information. If any body has any info for me please let know. Thanks

    although I was not able to test for County, most of my EMT-I class did. They talk about it all the time... basically from what I have heard, they are in the middle of the 1st recruit school, i think 6 people have dropped out of it allready. The eligibility list is good for 3 years... none of them have gotten any letters yet, besides the "your on the list" leter. hope this helps..

    I got the standard "rejection" a few months ago, after my board interview. Said I wasn't chosen at that time, for whatever thats worth. Haven't heard anything since.

    I called and talked to a lady about 3 weeks ago in the Fire Administation building and she told me she was still trying to get an exact date from the Fire Chief for when the second academy would start in early Spring. She told me to call back the first week of December and she would know more. She told me she would let me know any info as soon as possible, because I would have the longest move out of anyone else hired, since I am coming from Michigan. As for the last letter I received it was after all the first round drug tests and background checks were done. I havent received anything lately, its all been info I received over the phone.

    The current recruit class started off with 40 recruits some medics, some emt-i. They take 40 recruits, I donít know the exact # but they will put 45 guys through the hiring process. If anyone quits or gets fired with in the first 3 weeks of the academy they will use the other recruits as reserves. I know that they have lost a decent amount of recruits due to grades, DRís, DNPís and injuries.

    From what I heard last of CCFD was that it was a three year list from this last test, so they probably won't test for a couple years. As for being a medic, CCFD doesn't have transporting rigs. Although they do run ALS Rescues and I think ALS Engines as well. The first recruits going through the acadmey right now are just about all medics. The Fire Chief wants to hire as many medics as he can get, I heard. As for if your looking for private EMS to start, AMR is there biggest and I think their main EMS company, I believe it bought out their competition. They get a lot of calls and AMR may not beable to get on scene for a couple minutes so that is why CCFD runs ALS Rescues, but I don't know why they don't just transport themselves. If you have any other questions, I can try to answer them for you.

    As for being a medic here, licensing is pretty easy. If your National Registry you just have to take the state written exam. CCFD is looking for FF/Medics just like every fire department in the valley. But their academy is no joke. Chief Smith runs a pretty tight ship over there.So bring your A game.

    My advice- If youre in the testing process, let them call you. Dont bother them too much. I can see maybe ONE phone call tothe department.

    If anything, call personnel.

    Just out of curiosity, when was the testing for Clark County? I'm interested in this department, but I know I will not be able to test for a while now.

    Default Fire academy

    The testing was way back in I believe it was November of 06. The last time I talked to Human Resources they were looking at a March graduation from the first acedamy, and the second would start around early April. Thats what I heard last, but that all depends on what certifications they need to get all their guys, maybe longer or shorter, thats just what I was told.

    Default fire academy

    I was called and told that the next 3 to 4 weeks they were finishing up getting guys in for their physical exams, background checks, and psych tests. I tested back in Sept. for my psych, background check and physical, cause I was an alternate for the first academy. She told me to just wait the 4 weeks and they will decide who goes to the next academy in mid June after all testing is done.

    Question C C F D

    Does anyone know when the next academy date is after the june academy?

    Is CC going through the same budget crunch as LV?

    How is the rest of the economy in that area, I heard that the entire vegas area is starting to slow down.

    Thanks for the info.

    I took the suitability test last year, as an alternate, and I am waiting for the June academy. My buddy might go he's trying to make a decision weather to go or not he heard its the last hiring off of the last test list. Its alot of dumb stupid questions and they ask you the same questions in 10 different ways to see how you answer the same question. Then they sit down and kind of interview view you and record it and ask you questions about certain answers if the computer picked up anything fishy to some anwers. If you pass this they can still not take you depending on the background check and, physical exam. Im from Michigan and have to friends out there and they say the northwest is the expensive area and the east side is ghetto. She said to look in the west, southwest, and some south, southeast thats the cheaper areas if you can call living out there cheap. I hope they offer discounts to fire personnel, my sister lives in Phoenix, AZ they gave her a discount for being a teacher. So hopefully. Hope this helped some and good luck.
