03/23/09 106 W, 1 I - + 15 - 13 Apex: 401 Applied for 12 Firefighter Jobs

WRAL reports that hundreds of firefighter applicants were queued at the Apex Town Hall today, to take the written tests for 12 open firefighter positions. The town took 401 applications for the slots, which were posted Feb. 18, and 260 applicants were eligible to take the written test. The Apex Fire Department is expanding its "36-strong department" with 12 positions funded by a $1.3 million SAFER grant. The academy starts May 11, and the twelve firefighters are expected on the job on Sept. 11. Good luck, all! Read the article. Or learn more about AFD, on the town site, or the fire department site.

When you show up to apply for a job dressed like that, you should be sent home, no questions asked. If you don’t take pride in yourself, how can you be expected to take pride in your department.

Er, aren’t those the folks waiting to take the written exam? But maybe that’s a suit ‘n’ tie situation as well. Hope nobody wore a Hawaiian shirt to the thing. Those types of people are crazy!
