If you say yes to a canvass letter for a jurisdiction do you stay on the list?

Word on the street is Peekskill has sent out letters. However, canvassing letters does not necessarily equal hirings.

3 for Port Chester.

Any idea if Port Chester is moving beyond their residency list ? As I understand it they reached the 75's on the list with their last hirings. Are there many more left on their list ?

I believe Hartsdale, Scarsdale, Fairview, Rye, Port Chester, Eastchester all sent candidates to the CPAT. I'd imagine most of those departments would be sending recruits.

Current list expires 11/01/15, correct me if I'm wrong but a new list can't be certified till the old one expires right ?

Either way, has anyone heard of any FD's canvassing for the spring class ?

the list is good for 3-4 years the old list expires when they certify the new list. there is no concrete time frame in which the list must be active.

The past 3 or so lists have been all given in march and have been certified early fall, but theoretically, the county can give a new test any time after 3 years passes, rendering the current list expired as soon as they certify the new one

As a former Union rep, the clear answer to those in charge would be, "Who are we supposed to protect? The people who pay our salaries directly? Or the people who have their protection through a jurisdictional agreement because they cannot staff their own full time department?"

But, to get back on the topic of the thread...Is the county holding another towns & villages test next year?

I only know of Mount Vernon for sure and I think I heard Yonkers.

Isn't Rye Brook paying PC which in turn pays the salaries (of the few remaining firefighters)?

Neither use the county test or list

I know neither use the county list but they have people in the current academy which is the same academy used by the county.

Unless things have changed I believe Yonkers still conducts their own classes separate from the county.

Did anyone take the CPAT the other week for the county? I believe this is the last round off that list?
