    R.c.f.d.

    Sorry guys wasn't really sure where to pose this question, Does anyone know if Reedy Creek Fire Dept. hires often?

    I have been looking for a place in the fire service (I'm currently Illinois FF2 and just am about to take my national certification test for EMT-P) and thought it'd be interesting to apply there if they have opportunities and see if I got hired...been following on firejobs.com and a couple of other sites but I have never seen or heard about Reedy Creek so I'm wondering how they assign that area seeing as I know most places post typically online, in newspaper, and via flyer, but not sure if Reedy Creek Follows the same procedures...

    Sorry again if this is in the wrong place, but the website was down and I'm just looking for more info about the Fire Department that wasn't on their site...Just wondering if there was something special needed to become one of those "Defending the Magic"

    Yeah I figured, you just never know you might get lucky with some info that isn't online yet...hopefully they don't do like some of the departments up here and just have a set amount of applications that have to be picked up in person. Those are usually gone within an hour up here.

    I'm sure it wouldn't hurt if you send them a resume.

    You can always check Reedy Creek's union website and see if you can get more info.

    I saw you were getting national certification, and I noticed this on the Reedy Creek website
    Please note: The Reedy Creek Improvement District does not recognize reciprocity, national certifications, nor does it accept certifications from other states*.
    But you can challenge the FL exam it looks like.

    Oh that's interesting, it's pretty much the same thing here in Illinois, except Illinois far as I know won't even let you challenge their exams. I always found it odd that a State would be allowed to say that your national certs aren't up to snuff..

    I'm sure if I can pass the exam here I can do it in another state, but it's just another hoop to jump through...thanks for noticing that though!
