The Cincinnati Fire Department
announced that the application to sign up for the Firefighter's exam starts today.
The last CFD recruit class graduated in 2009. CFD is recruiting for a broad and diverse group of qualified applicants. The department wants to have a class of about 40 people initially. It expects 5000 people to apply.
The city is having money problems, but the fire department hopes to get money from other sources. Assistant Fire Chief Roy Winston tells Local 12 News: "One thing the fire department has done is to explore some of the federal dollars that are available through the various grants that are available, so we feel .. we're optimistic about receiving some of those federal dollars to fund those classes."
