I got another "just keep waiting email" from the city on Wednesday. I assume everyone else got the same?

You guys heard anything on a 2019 e-list? I’d guess that there is one coming given 2020 applications opens March 1 as expected.

Nothing yet. We got an email stating that they are forcasting a class for this fall but are waiting on the provincial budget to see what the size of the class would be. But in the meantime we are encouraged to reapply in March just in case.

Not sure how many are left in the running and I’ve also heard pensions might play a role in class size. But again it’s all just rumours swirling around.

So here’s the scoop on what has been heard. Edmonton fire has asked and been approved to run a class of 24 recruits starting in the fall. The training staff at the school have been on the floor due to changes being made to COVID-19/budget. So operation numbers are up. Training staff will go back to the school and with the retirements due to the new buyout package this past spring, there will be 17 spots available as of now in operations. There are more retirements throughout the year. Hope this helps

Last I heard, they may still be looking at doing a hiring recruitment later in the year, once things get reassessed. in the meantime, we have been helping prep multiple candidates at Firehouse Training.

Only time will tell right now I guess, since everything is up in the air unfortunately.

Ranking emails just went out this afternoon. Congrats to all the 40 who made the list.

Now let's just hope they go ahead with this fall class!
