    Call them back. There is NO HIRING FREEZE for DCFD or MPD.

    Did they give you any idea on when the next recruit class would be scheduled?

    I have heard they were talking about another class relatively soon. Also the City Council is looking at overstaffing the department in order to keep par levels when members retire. The Chief keeps telling them roughly a year between hire and street ready and if we overstaffed (I think they said 60 FTE's) then it would soften the blow of overtime to cover the in between time. City Counselor Mendelson has HR looking into whether it is possible or not.

    Also for all the Paramagics out there, you will be riding transport units. You will be riding them roughly every other tour and potentially more, so if this is not to your liking then don't apply. Our EMS system is not good for medics, so do your research before you come here.

    Remember all this is subject to change at any given moment when the new Mayor takes over next month, and subsequently new Chief. So keep that in mind as well.

    Yes. Everything CapitolSeagrave said was true both about the medics and the class starting soon. I have heard another one this month.(There are currently three going through already)

    I just talked to recruiting yesterday and they said they are up to number 425 on the 2008 list but he does not know when the next group is going to be contacted. Things are a little up in the air with the new mayor and chief coming in. They also said that the next test MIGHT be in August of this year. Good luck to everyone.

    I was told by DC firefighter to be prepared for early Jan class. Obviously, not good info. While in Arlington testing, spoke with some people who said they are pushing summer academies. Nothing viable to get your hopes up..
