I'm spending a lot of time and money recently applying to the Elk Grove Community Service District Fire Department (EGCSDFD? That's a little long to put on a hat!). Today I had my Captains oral review. There was a panel of 3 captains and 2 civilians. The interview lasted about 35 minutes. Theey asked questions ranging from "tell us about yourself" to "tell us of a difficult situation where you handled it poorly."Overall I think that the interview went well. I was the first of all the candidates to be interviewwd. I don't know if that has anything to do with my ranking but I would like to think so. I'll find out in about 10 days if I passed. The next step is the chief's oral review. I think that it's the same thing but with higher ranking officers.

One of the paramedics I worked with let his paramedic license lapse. He couldn't work for almost two weeks until the state came through with his license (sounds familiar). Since I am always concerned with the well being of my fellow medics I decided to start collecting applications to jobs that did not require a paramedic license. He ended up getting several fast food and delivery driver applications. He did get a kick out of it when he got them all.
