The firefighter announcement was released January 1, 2010. The written exam (Cognitive and Teamwork video) was administered in October 2010. The Physical Performance Test (PPT) is tentatively scheduled to run from April through June 2011. Candidates will begin to receive their pass / fail notices between March and May 2011 depending on when each candidate is scheduled to take the PPT. Candidates should now begin preparing themselves to take the PPT.
Non-consent decree candidates should NOT wait until they find out their pass / fail status to begin preparing because you will not receive your pass / fail notice until approximately three weeks prior to your test date.
Consent decree candidates will be contacted by their respective fire departments regarding the PPT.
All candidates that pass the written exam will be scheduled to take the PPT and must have a medical clearance form completed by their doctor prior to their test date. Medical clearance forms will be mailed written exam passers with your pass / fail notice. Failure to have your doctor complete a medical clearance will result in disqualification from the exam. Your medical clearance form MUST be signed by your doctor within 60 days of your PPT test date. Medical clearance forms that are signed by your doctor more than 60 days before your scheduled PPT date will not be accepted.
